    As announced on the Haxe mailing list, after more than 10 years I'll be leaving Motion-Twin in a few months.

    This will not affect in any aspect my personal investment in Haxe or any part of the project, since most of the time spent in compiler development was already made on my spare/hobby time. I will also make sure that any future work that I do after that is mostly done in Haxe, since I don't feel much like writing in another language anymore.

    In order to have something very clean for Haxe perceptions for companies, I'll make sure that we create soon a Haxe Foundation (NonProfit) that will hold the rights on the code, trademark, host the website etc. Any help is welcome.

    I have not 100% decided yet what I will do next, although I have some serious paths I'm currently exploring. I might then be still open to proposals ;)

    Time for new adventures !

    For instance on your GMail account Thunderbird will correctly detect that your trash is in [Gmail]/Trash, but messages put in that Trash are automatically deleted after 30 days. I prefer in general to keep all my old mails in an Archives folder.

    Thunderbird has a nice option that ask you in which folder you want deleted items to placed, but that's not exactly what it does. Actually this give it another "Default Trash" folder name, as shown in the prefs.js (it is stored in a trash_folder_name key).

    And this other trash folder will conflict with Gmail one, leading in most of the cases your mails being put in the Gmail Trash instead of your custom one.

    One simple fix I found is to Unsubscribe to t...
