Hi all,

The time has come to announce the release of the new address book for
claws-mail. Since cvs39 the new address book has been merged with the
official claws-mail and is available for testing.

To activate the new address book you must compile the cvs39 version
with this option: --enable-new-addrbook.

Screen shots are available here:

Prior to compiling claws-mail the new address book, claws-contacts,
must be compiled and installed. When running the new address book for
the first time the old contacts from the old native address book in
claws-mail will be automatically imported into the new address book.

To make it easy for you I have made to tarballs available for download.
Grab them here:


Please test and report back either on this list or preferably
https://bugs.datanom.net/claws-contacts/ (requires and openID to create
tickets) with your opinions and in case of bugs.
