Is this a native port? If so, I think this qualifies as big news.

EDIT:
Just read the READ ME. It's not a native port. =/
Still cool though.

From the README ( http://forgeftp.novell.com//evolution/builds/osx-evolution-2.6/READ... ) :

"Troubleshooting

1) My installer does not launch the app properly

Check if you have XDarwin or X11 installed on your system, if not please install them. Evolution runs by connecting to the XServer and uses X11 for display."

Oh well, Thunderbird still works like a charm :-)
