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.
* 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.
