The new release features a new look and functionality for managing attachments, as well as an improved capability to handle HTML content in messages. Several user interface tweaks, particularly around contextual menus, have also been introduced; finally, the app adds the ability — currently marked as experimental — to compose messages using John Gruber’s popular Markdown format.
