Release candidate for 3.0.0

25 Sep 2020

The first release candidate for Inbucket 3.0.0 is out!

What’s New:

The biggest change from the 2.x series is a brand new user interface that makes Inbucket feel much more like an application than a website.

Other significant changes include the ability include the domain in a mailbox name (see INBUCKET_MAILBOXNAMING), and a configurable URL base path (INBUCKET_WEB_BASEPATH) to aid in placing Inbucket behind an application proxy.
