Been working on folder index serialization for the past few days - this will let Iris display mail folder contents while offline or before the synchronization of messages from server is complete. So while a new connection to open an IMAP folder is established, Iris will load the headers from local storage in a separate thread.
For some speed benchmarks:
My INBOX folder with 3102 messages:
-[IrisFolderCache loadThread]: 459ms
-[IrisFolderCache saveThread:]: 260ms
MorphOS CVS mailouts folder with 12407 messages:
-[IrisFolderCache loadThread]: 2286ms
-[IrisFolderCache saveThread:]: 983ms
This is on my 1.67GHz PowerBook by the way.
Next step: incremental synchronization for IMAP, then sorting and filtering.
