We have updated the demo at http://demo.conjoon.org with the latest version of conjoon 0.1.4RC1. This is a maintenance release which enables conjoon’s Twitter client to utilize Twitter’s oauth implementation. The new release will be available tomorrow evening for everyone to download from the official project page at http://www.conjoon.org

With the upcoming release 0.1.4 of conjoon you’ll be able to manage attachments for your Emails. While functionality has been quickly implemented (the GUI has been updated with a number of nifty features), we decided to add full support for storing LOBs in the server’s filesystem.
There are a number of reasons why one would rather not store LOBs into the database – mainly performance wise.
conjoon 0.1.4 will introduce a few new configuration options regarding LOB storage – which can be even changed during runtime. The backend will still maintain relations between the filesystem and the database to keep data integrity – while providing a performance boost and simultaneously reduce space needed by the database to store files, attachments and raw email sources.
So what does this mean for you? First off, the install wizard will be updated to guide you through the needed steps for setting up file system LOB storage. No data has to be migrated, even if you decide to use filesystem LOB storage (resources for LOBs will be determined during runtime). All you have to do is to take proper care of the file permissions to prevent security issues. However, we give advices during setup where necessary – in the end you’re still able to configure your installation to store LOBs in the db.

conjoon v0.1 is raring to go and it brings a lot of improvements and new features.
Once Ext 3.0 final gets published, we will apply some fine tuning and release V0.1.
Here are some of the key features the new version brings:
* iPhone support
* Twitter client
* automated session manager
* enhanced workbench with organizable quick panels
* UI improvements
* System Sounds
Needless to say that various bug fixes made it into this release. Around 300 commits to the vcs have been made since the last release.
Here’s a screenshot of the upcoming release:

Contents will be migrated during the next weeks. This should be of interest to you as soon as the first downloadable release is available.
trac has been a reliable companion during the first development cycles of conjoon, and we admire the effort the trac Team puts into developing their software. However, the way we are developing conjoon changed in the past months, and that’s why we decided that the Atlassian‘s Software Suite (Jira, Confluence and Fisheye) better fits our needs.
