GlodaQuilla version 0.3.0 released

By | November 12, 2009

This release is intended to update GlodaQuilla to work with Thunderbird version 3.0 (including release candidate RC1). You can download the new version of GlodaQuilla here. (GlodaQuilla’s main function is to provide access to information about the indexing status of each Thunderbird message in the “gloda” global database.)

In addition to the gloda columns, this release adds an experimental feature to allow overriding of the default gloda configuration concerning which messages are indexed. This new inherited folder property is called “Index in Global Database”.  Access to inherited properties such as this are discussed in the post “Inherited Folder Properities (revisited)”

You can use this property to disable indexing of servers or folders that are normally allowed, or to enable indexing on folders that are normally disabled (such as trash or junk folders). In my system, for example, for testing purposes I download my email both as IMAP and as POP3, but I disable the indexing of IMAP to prevent double indexing of the same messages.

This new property does not make any attempt to fix existing indexing when it is changed. Minimal support for this hopefully will be added for the 1.0.0 release of GlodaQuilla.
