* 1.8 (released on June 25, 2022)
*** mu
- =mu= switched to the [[https://mesonbuild.com][meson]] build system by default. The existing =autotools=
is still available, but is to be removed after the 1.8 release.
Using =meson= (which you may need to install), you can use something like
the following in the mu top source directory:
#+BEGIN_SRC sh
$ meson build && ninja -C build
#+END_SRC
- However, note that =autogen.sh= has been updated, and there's a
convenience =Makefile= with some useful targets, so you can also do:
#+BEGIN_SRC sh
$ ./autogen.sh && make # and optionally, 'sudo make install'
#+END_SRC
- After that, either =ninja -C build= or =make= should be enough to rebuild
- NOTE: development versions 1.7.18 - 17.7.25 had a bug where the mail file
names sometimes got misnamed (with some extra ':2,'). This can be restored
with something like:
#+begin_example
$ find ~/Maildir -name '*:2,*:*' | \
sed "s/\(\([^:]*\)\(:2,\)\{1,\}\(:2,.*$\)\)/mv '\0' '\2\4'/" > rename.sh
#+end_example
(replace 'Maildir' with the path to your maildir)
once this is done, do check the generated 'rename.sh' and after convincing
yourself it does the right thing, do
#+begin_example
$ sh rename.sh
#+end_example
after that, re-index.
- Before installing, it is recommended that you *remove* any older versions
of ~mu~ and especially ~mu4e~, since they may conflict with the newer ones.
(there are some changes in the installation procedure compared to 1.6.x; see
Installation below)

displaying big results snappier. This required some updates in the headers
