[haiku-development] E-mail preferences - Feature removal? (Axel Dörfler)

Wed, 2015-12-23 16:45
Hi there, the original add account wizard of the E-mail preferences has a page for specifying the server, and the encryption used.

It either means the original release remains supported, which would imply a new branch for R1.1 is created and new builders running R1.1 would build packages for that release while the old builders still running R1 would continue to build packages for R1. If we stop support for R1 as soon as R1.1 is released (which would make sense to me) the builders could be update to R1.1 and start building for the new version. ...
