"For those of you who are interested in helping us test new features (or just like to get a sneak preview of things to come) there is an experimental Windows build with the new autocomplete widget and the new modern theme available at Please post theme feedback and autcomplete issues here until it is checked into the trunk."

Joe Hewitt wants to also let folks know that the new skin is only half way done, and to be gentle on him...

The new autocomplete is great, amazingly fast too. One thing i wish it had tho was a section preferences control panel. As you can see from the many posts here, some people like this feature to work in different ways than other people. It would be huge if we could all customize it to our liking. In particular, my suggestion would be to allow the user to turn off the mouse reaction to the list being brought up. I know many people use the mouse to go through the list, but I can\\\'t stand it. Whenever I hilight the textbox the mouse falls somewhere in the list that gets in the way of me pressing the down arrow. (I also hate this in windows autocomplete).

The new gui is great as well, the email topbar makes the app seem so new and professional. I wish it took up less vertical space on the screen, but I can live with that.
