GNU Mailman 3 Enters Beta 57

Posted by Unknown Lamer
from the duke-nukem-forever dept.
GNU Mailman, likely the most popular mailing list manager in use today, has finally announced the release of a beta for version 3. GNU Mailman 3.0 is a major rewrite, features include a central server with a REST API replacing the dozen or two programs that manipulated Mailman data directly, a shiny new web fron end (Postorius), and a new archiver (HyperKitty). Fedora is already using the new archiver and interface, which is quite a bit more modern looking than Mailman 2.x's interface (wayback machine link for posterity). Individual message thread views are greatly improved, and you can even reply from the web by logging in with your list credentials. If you'd like to try it out, see the announcement message.

    It seems to work fine with JavaScript disabled. In fact, in my opinion it's better that way because it doesn't have the animated cr*p that the JavaScript-kiddies think is so kewl but is really rather pointless and distracting.

    No, it doesn't (thread links below article just show a twirling thingie waiting for the XMLHTTPRequest to do its thing). I'd provide you with a link, but the server is down.

    Reading the page code, it's just intended that way. I don't know whether it's built-in to Mailman or just the web designers going overboard.

    JavaScript is not evil when used properly. True, it is one of the worst ever designed languages, but presently it is the only available DOM manipulation language included in all browsers.
