Subject: [PATCH] Persistently save downloaded inline remote images
Date: Tue, 29 Sep 2020 19:15:24 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)

[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 272 bytes --]

Currently remote images are downloaded upon each display.
As most of the time the images do not change in between redisplays, we can instead buffer the images locally and only update the local copy when the remote image is updated.

Attached is a proposed patch.
