||Status update on SimpleMail|
Traditionally at Christmas there has been always the usual update of the mail programme SimpleMail but at Christmas 2019 it was missing. We hasve asked the two original developers Hynek Schlawack and Sebastian Bauer.
Schlawack stated that for years he has not been involved neither in SimpleMail nor in the Amiga market at all. According to his website his current "day job is writing software that keeps a hosting provider and domain registrar running". In his spare time he has "been involved with open source software in general and the Python community in particular for a long while and I’m a proud fellow of the Python Software Foundation."
Sebastian Bauer answered that he still is working on SimpleMail. Each day he would do some minor coding but currently not Amiga specific. Furthermore he said that the changes made on the Amiga code would have not justified a Christmas update. He does not have the time to add major changes but he is going to use SimpleMail for himself which benefits the Amiga version.
Finally he said that currently he is the only developer working on the code but nobody has to fear that the development will stop. It is only proceeding at a snail's pace so he cannot tell when the next update will be released. (dr) (Translation: dr)
