Continuing gloda efforts. The main goal, continuous (event-driven) indexing, for milestone 2 has been done for a bit, although core mods to generate additional events will be required. The slowdown/stumbling block has been dealing with MIME, trying to get a javascript representation. Think I'm basically there. This should enable indexing attachments (a stated goal for milestone 2), and processing of bodies for indexing (not a stated goal).

    • I have a large, possibly controversial refactoring patch for MSG_FLAG_NEW management (bug 441932 "Keep lists of new messages only in nsMsgDBFolder") virtually ready for review. I've recently completed a general and a specific unit test for this, as well as done the umpteenth patch review. This patch will help with progress in various changes in BIFF management, including management of BIFF notification by filters (bug 11040).
    • I'm currently collecting a variety of changes (I call them "improvements") in the available UI for junk management into an extension "junquilla".
