The way it lays out accounts by default is annoying, if you have various 
accounts added it puts all the mailboxes at the top of the tree on the 
left... and then other folders for each account below. I am also not 
that happy with the search, if you want to quickly find a list of emails 
from a specific user it opens a tab and seems a bit more bloaty and i 
find it hard to find the email im looking for. I know you can search 
inside the email and the search is faster (providing you download all 
your imap email, tbord calls this syncing).

Other than that I have noticed no other improvements apart from that you 
can write your sig into the account now and not have to attach a text 
file (finally).
