Re: BBDB no longer works with Mu4e [PATCHED]

Dear list members,

The current bbdb-mua.el references the old manner in which mu4e viewed messages. The new mu4e simply uses the gnus-article view. I have modified bbdb to reflect the new manner in which mu4e views messages. The old way is now deprecated and so does not need to be supported.

This patch seems to fix the problem and allow for the current mu4e to use bbdb as before. For those using an older mu4e they can simply omit this patch.

If I remember correctly, Mu4e has given such problems more than once when its internals that BBDB depends on have changed. But I do not know anything about Mu4e myself, and you are the first one reporting here that the latest versions of BBDB and Mu4e do not go together anymore.
If you can look into this, it's welcome.
