Description Abhay S. Kushwaha 2012-11-20 13:43:53 CET
Please support and include the "Fancy" plug-in for windows build. The GTKHTML plug-in is very slow and unstable.

This is out of my scope but <kindoftease>if someone want to work on that I'm
highly against it</kindoftease>

Salvatore, the increased usage of HTML-focused email clients means people send email in HTML more often than not. A lot of markup is lost in plain-text. Fancy allows for display and consumption of the message in the format it was written and us Windows folks will only be too happy if we can take advantage of Fancy as well.

If your object is to HTML mails, fortunately Claws-Mail replies are plain text and I've often found conversations moving into plain text mode with many MUAs replying back in the format they received original email. So I'm with you on that part.

Hi, I know what Fancy does, I wanted to mean I know nothing about Windows development and I'm not going to get into that, not really interested. But if someone feel like patching the sources I'm not going to be against that.

Does the WebKit library even build for Win32?

This got added in 3.9.0cvs124. Thank you Colin! :)
