New Eudora 6.0 beta: still not getting the basics right

Just had a quick look at the new Eudora 6.0 beta for Mac OS X. I was hoping that the major version number change would indicate a major overhaul.

Not such luck. The new junk mail features look interesting, but what to make of the fact that Eudora still doesn’t support Quartz Text Smoothing, and that it still doesn’t support integration with Mac OS X’s Address Book?

Advanced features are great, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to get the basics right. The best software out there is a combination of both. Mac OS X’s own Mail is not quite there yet. But it’s closer than Eudora is, and it doesn’t look like version 6.0 will change much of that. On top of it, you have to pay for it. No thanks.
