Noteworthy changes

  • The user interface has been redesigned. Some of you will love it, some will hate it. You’re welcome and we’re sorry.
  • Starting with Android 6 the platform introduced a lot of changes to limit what apps can do in the background. Old versions of K-9 Mail didn’t work too well with these limitations. In 5.800 we’ve made the necessary changes so periodic background sync and Push now work much more reliably.
  • This version of K-9 Mail only runs on Android 5.0 and newer.
  • The support for WebDAV accounts has been deprecated. You won’t be able to set up new WebDAV accounts. However, existing accounts will continue to work for now.
  • Various improvements and bug fixes related to end-to-end encryption (Autocrypt, OpenPGP).

The new version also includes a lot of bug fixes and minor changes. For details, check out the changelog entries for the beta versions (5.7xx) leading up to this stable release.
