Although Sparrow still lacks general IMAP support, the update includes a few bug fixes that make sending an e-mail faster than in its first release.
According to a posting on the Sparrow blog, version 1.0.1 includes:
- Improved sending speed
- Improved thread/conversation refresh
- Basic Apple script support
- ‘Menu bar only’ mode
- Various bug fixes
In addition, we’re happy to report a free Sparrow Lite version will be available soon in the Mac App Store. It is currently awaiting approval from Apple.
Sparrow is available today for $9.99. It currently works with Google mail. The upcoming 1.1 update will offer IMAP support for most mail providers, including Yahoo!, AOL, and MobileMe.
