Yorba has announced the 0.6.0 release of its Geary IMAP mail client recently. Here’s how to install it in Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy.

Changes in Geary 0.6.0:

  • Basic search scope operators, such as from:john
  • An oft-requested “save sent mail” option for non-Gmail users
  • Separate actions for archive, trash, and delete
  • Much improved server support — if you found Geary unusable in the past on a Dovecot or other non-”cloud service” server, I’d urge you to give it another go
  • Many stability, speed, and interface improvements and bugfixes

Install Geary 0.6.0:

For Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy, press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal. When it opens, run the commands below one by one and it will install Geary from Yorba’s Stable PPA.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install geary

For other Ubuntu releases, you may build it from the source code: geary-0.6.0.tar.xz
