I've made it clear a while ago that I'm focusing on an email client for MorphOS ...
Iris has been in development for a while now - in fact, the technology its built upon is in development since 2015. The app is currently in a closed beta test which I would like to open once 3.10 becomes available.
I'll post spoiler updates here once in a while about the features I'm working on.
OAuth2 is supported for Gmail and Outlook.com. This lets you login using 2FA to your gmail account. Adding accounts is straightforward - most common servers will autoconfigure using Thunderbird's autoconfiguration server.
Will Iris be included within any future versions of MorphOS, or is it going to be a separate program that you will sell to users, once the beta test phase is complete? I don't mind either way, and actually prefer such work, which I consider an independent addition to MorphOS, to be sold to users, so the programmer doing the work is adequately (or at least partially), compensated for the time they spent coding it. I know there are too many users in our community that expect our programmers to work for free and release freely downloadable software, but I am not one of those, and I believe that programmers who are rewarded for their work with both praise and money, are more likely to continue producing native software for MorphOS.[ Edited by amigadave 22.12.2017 - 12:31 ]
