The April 2012 Release (build 188.8.131.523) is live: http://mfcmapi.codeplex.com.
I ship a new build of MFCMAPI every two months. That’s a personal goal I keep to help motivate me. Somehow I got it in my head that I was due to release a new build of MFCMAPI here in April. So I worked extra hard to track down some bugs and implement some new features to make the new build worth it. Only when that was done did I realize I shipped a new build in March – one month ago. So here you go – bonus build!
When you start this new build, you’ll see a new menu, which is a feature I’m quite proud of: QuickStart. This is a collection of actions that will get you to common destinations in MFCMAPI with a minimum of fuss. For instance, you can now in one action open the Inbox, Calendar, or Contacts folders. Other QuickStarts I implemented in this first batch are one to display the contents of your nickname cache (this one can be slow) or display your mailbox quotas (several properties which are a pain to track down since they’re not visible by default). Over time I plan to add more QuickStarts to the list, so send me any idea you have and I’ll consider them.
Here’s a change list – see the Issue Tracker on Codeplex for more details, or look at the code:
- SmartView: Fixed Recurrence Blob parser crash
- Added Copy/Paste to profiles – back up a profile before you fiddle with it!
- MAPI Stub Library Overhaul: We simplified the stub library code and now MFCMAPI benefits.
- Fixed a couple New Look glitches.
