Scott Morrison has released a third public beta of MailTags 2.0, the next supercharged version of his outstanding plugin for Mail.app (Read more about this plugin which has totally revolutionised the way I use Mail in earlier reviews of MailTags 1.2 and MailTags 1.2.2).
Although it comes with very sensible warnings about the dangers of beta software, I am finding it remarkably stable. It came out of the sandbox and into my real life email long ago without any problems.
Public Beta 3 adds AppleScript support which allows scripts to access and set tags.
Its support for threaded views in Mail is greatly improved. The plugin will now display all keywords and projects within a thread, as well as priorities and due dates.
Two niggles have been corrected: IMAP messages no longer disappear from smart mailboxes after they are tagged and preferences for projects and keywords are less likely to become corrupted.
The ability to set an iCal event (as well as to-dos) almost made the cut for this beta. Expect to see it soon, making MailTags more and more the complete package for Mail and iCal integration.
You can read more about MailTags 2.0 and its new features and download the public beta from Scott’s web site , where you will also find a forum for any questions.
