Scott Morrison has released version 1.2 of his ingenious MailTags add-on for Apple Mail.
The most exciting new feature is one that allows you to create items for your iCal To Do list from inside Mail. Any changes you make to them later in iCal will automatically be reflected inside MailTags too. You can even use the iCal links to create new Smart Folder criteria, so you could create a Smart Folder of messages that have a To Do item which has not yet been done. This is smart stuff.
The app is now a Universal Binary, too. There's a host of bug fixes and code tweaks. Sadly there's still no support for IMAP accounts, but Scott is working on that for the next release.
Considering the amount of work he's put into it to date, MailTags and it's companion, Mail Act-On, are remarkable examples of free software, though Scott welcomes donations from people who want to support future efforts.
