    • subject is automatically looked up on I18n using mailer_name and action_name as scope as in t(".subject") JK

    • Changed encoding behaviour of mail, so updated tests in actionmailer and bumped mail version to 2.2.1 ML

    • Added ability to pass Proc objects to the defaults hash ML

    • Removed all quoting.rb type files from ActionMailer and put Mail 2.2.0 in instead ML

    • Lot of updates to various test cases that now work better with the new Mail and so have different expectations

    • Added interceptors and observers from Mail ML

      ActionMailer::Base.register_interceptor calls Mail.register_interceptor
      ActionMailer::Base.register_observer calls Mail.register_observer
    • Mail::Part now no longer has nil as a default charset, it is always set to something, and defaults to UTF-8

    • Added explict setting of charset in set_fields! method to make sure Mail has the user defined default

    • Removed quoting.rb and refactored for Mail to take responsibility of all quoting and auto encoding requirements for the header.

    • Fixed several tests which had incorrect encoding.

    • Changed all utf-8 to UTF-8 for consistency

    • Whole new API added with tests. See base.rb for full details. Old API is deprecated.

    • The Mail::Message class has helped methods for all the field types that return 'common' defaults for the common use case, so to get the subject, mail.subject will give you a string, will give you a DateTime object, mail.from will give you an array of address specs ( etc. If you want to access the field object itself, call mail[:field_name] which will return the field object you want, which you can then chain, like mail[:from].formatted

    • Mail#content_type now returns the content_type field as a string. If you want the mime type of a mail, then you call Mail#mime_type (eg, text/plain), if you want the parameters of the content type field, you call Mail#content_type_parameters which gives you a hash, eg {'format' => 'flowed', 'charset' => 'utf-8'}

    • ActionMailer::Base :default_implicit_parts_order now is in the sequence of the order you want, no reversing of ordering takes place. The default order now is text/plain, then text/enriched, then text/html and then any other part that is not one of these three.

    • Mail does not have "quoted_body", "quoted_subject" etc. All of these are accessed via body.encoded, subject.encoded etc

    • Every object in a Mail object returns an object, never a string. So Mail.body returns a Mail::Body class object, need to call #encoded or #decoded to get the string you want.

    • Mail::Message#set_content_type does not exist, it is simply Mail::Message#content_type

    • Every mail message gets a unique message_id unless you specify one, had to change all the tests that check for equality with expected.encoded == actual.encoded to first replace their message_ids with control values

    • Mail now has a proper concept of parts, remove the ActionMailer::Part and ActionMailer::PartContainer classes

    • Calling #encoded on any object returns it as a string ready to go into the output stream of an email, this means it includes the \r\n at the end of the lines and the object is pre-wrapped with \r\n\t if it is a header field. Also, the "encoded" value includes the field name if it is a header field.

    • Attachments are only the actual attachment, with filename etc. A part contains an attachment. The part has the content_type etc. So attachments.last.content_type is invalid. But parts.last.content_type

    • There is no idea of a "sub_head" in Mail. A part is just a Message with some extra functionality, so it just has a "header" like a normal mail message
