Subject: [ANN] mblaze 0.2, a Maildir-focused command line mail client
Date: Mon, 17 Jul 2017 16:33:43 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87lgnnnneg.fsf@gmail.com> (raw)


I'm happy to announce a new release of "mblaze", a Unix command line
mail client system in the spirit of RAND MH, but developed from scratch
and focused on Maildir.

mblaze features:

   * small, portable, and efficient C code base (and a bit of sh)
   * only dependency is iconv(3)
   * UTF-8 enabled
   * first-class Maildir support
   * good MIME support for reading and composition
   * good threading support
   * plain MUA, not limiting your choice of MTA and MDA
   * flexible and composable tools, with sensible defaults
   * useful for scripting and ad-hoc usage, even if you prefer another MUA else
   * Public Domain (CC0) with tiny bits of external MIT-licensed code

New features of this release:

   * New sequence syntax `m:+n` for `n` messages after message `m`.
   * Threading shortcuts `=`, `_`, `^` for `.=`, `._`, `.^`.
   * Sequence related errors are now reported.
   * minc and mlist normalize slashes in paths.
   * mfwd now generates conforming message/rfc822 parts.
   * mthread can add optional folders (e.g. your outbox) to resolve message ids.
   * mcom now adds Date: just before sending or cancelling the mail.
   * VIOLATIONS.md documents how mblaze works with certain common mistakes.
   * Full documentation revamp by Larry Hynes.
   * Fix rare crash looking for mail body.
   * Numerous small bug and portability fixes.

Please note that mblaze is still quite new and while the code has been
tested on substantial piles of real-world mail, I'm sure there still
are kinks here and there.  It probably won't eat your mail.
Please report issues you find.
