The last release of HyperKitty was in February (19th). That’s a long time ago. And there’s been quite a few changes in the HyperKitty world, let me tell you.

So I’ve just published yesterday a new version of our favorite Mailman3 web archiver, which is available on PyPI. Here are the most significant code changes since the last version:

  • Merge and compress static files (CSS and Javascript)
  • Django 1.5 compatibility
  • Fixed REST API
  • Improved RPM packaging
  • Auto-subscribe the user to the list when they reply online
  • New login providers: generic OpenID and Fedora
  • Improved page loading on long threads: the replies are loaded asynchronously
  • Replies are dynamically inserted in the thread view

But code is not everything, and HyperKitty has now been deployed to serve real mailing-lists, alongside Mailman3 of course. The Fedora Infrastructure team uses is (lightly for now), and the Arquillian project has chosen to setup its lists on HyperKitty, using our server. This means we have a second server running, deployed using the HyperKitty RPMs and Ansible (which is great by the way).

If you’re interested in the future of mailing-lists, please checkout HyperKitty, I’m sure you’ll love it. And if you don’t, tell me why so I can make it work for you!
