    Gmail Notifier development restarted

    Development of Gmail Notifier 1.7 has been started. This version will be written from scratch and the main objectives are:

  • The application must run under most Linux distributions and MS Windows.
  • The application must run without additional work in 64-bit processors.
  • The application must rely only on Python and PyGTK libraries. Additional features will be optional.
  • The application must be multi-threaded.
  • The application must support HTTP and HTTPS connections over proxy.

    You are encouraged to post any feature that you would like using the "Feature Requests" service in the SourceForge project page.

    Thanks for waiting so long!

    Gmail Notifier 1.6.1 released

    Notifier version 1.6 is not working any more due to a change in Gmail's authentication system. The latest release solves this by implementing it's own connection library, instead of using libgmail.
