Feature Work

Modern Address Book
  • It's been a slow couple of weeks due to other project deadlines (because today is release day!)
  • I've almost finished porting over the TB Mork Connector tests to the new interfaces. I think I've found a regression while I'm at it, so there's that to fix as well.
  • We're going to have to come up with a new solution for whitelisting HTML mail from particular addresses - we don't want to store that in the address book anymore.
