Message-ID: <87y3l3avcp.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 tool mflow to reformat format=flowed plain text mails.
   * New tool mbnc to bounce mails (send original mail to someone else).
   * mshow filters can output raw text now, e.g. for HTML rendering with colors.
   * mrep can quote mail that doesn't have a plain text part.
   * mcom runs mmime when deemed necessary.
   * mhdr can extract MIME parameters.
   * New contrib: mrecode
   * New contrib: mraw
   * mshow regards non-MIME mails as MIME mails with one part now.
   * mshow -F to disable MIME filters.
   * mpick supports negations now.
   * msed can remove headers depending on their value.
   * Improved UTF-8 parsing.
   * Improved documentation.
   * Numerous bug fixes 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.
