The new publically available v2.1a1 release of Mulberry features a GUI SIEVE script generator. It allows you to create script 'elements' which you can then put together into a script and write out to disk as a file. We'll be adding support for upload to the SIEVE script repository via CMU's sieved protocol at a later date.

As regards being able to provide the full power of a SIEVE script via a GUI, we came to the conclusion that its just not feasible to do complex scripts in a GUI that's simple to use. Our approach was to provide an option to edit a 'raw' script element instead of use the GUI constructor. This seemed like the best trade-off.
