This mailing list is fully loaded with valuable information for both new 
and experienced users. Unfortunately, it is a bit difficult to access 
this information. There is an archive of previous mails 
(http://lists.lazarus.freepascal.org/pipermail/lazarus/), but it is a 
pain to open each mail one by one, and there are no searching capabilities.

Therefore, I wrote a little tool which downloads the archived mail 
threads into a searchable tree structure. Mails can be selected by 
month. The initial building-up of the tree takes some time, but the tree 
can be saved, and then subsequent loads are fast. Unfortunately the 
archived mails do not contain any attachments of the original mails.

Works fine on Windows 7, some issues on Linux.

Download of executable:

Download of source:

Compilation requires some third-party packages:

  * VirtualTreeView
  * synapse <http://synapse.ararat.cz/>
  * TurboPower Abbrevia <http://tpabbrevia.sourceforge.net>
  * Facil Syntax Highlighter
    <http://=http://github.com/t-edson/SynFacilSyn/> (since this is not
    a package the relevant files are included directly)
