Windows "We are pleased to be releasing a set of improvements to Windows 8 in broad areas of performance, power management and battery efficiency, media playback, and compatibility. These improvements are available starting today via Windows Update. We wanted to briefly talk about our improvements to the engineering system and in particular the speed at which we were able to deliver these updates to you." Good stuff. They're also updating the core Metro applications to make them less useless.

Really?

Up until now the default email client lacked imap support and they are adding this obscure feature between rtm and ga? Speaks volumes about how "finished" those applications are.

EDIT: Almost like they looked at KDE 4.0 release and are aiming for the same kind of reception it got from the end users ;)

Yeah, would've been nice had they actually finished it before releasing to manufacturers.

It appears there are multiple unfinished projects coming out the door from Redmond.

It definitely supported IMAP before.

They probably improved support for more obscure IMAP features (there are some obscure parts in the standard and its various extensions) and fixed bugs.

You're supposed to use ActiveSync -- like on phones.
