[This is the only mblaze announcement mail that will be sent to lists
other than mbl...@googlegroups.com, I hope it is interesting to you.]


I'm happy to announce the initial release of "mblaze", a Unix command line
mail client system in the spirit of RAND MH, but developed from scratch
and focused on Maildir.  It's been under active development for almost
a year, and I have been toying with the idea since 2010.

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

Partial support (in contrib/) exists for:

   * NNTP fetching and posting
   * Elementary GPG support (sign, encrypt, decrypt, verify)
   * vi-style TUI interface

mblaze consists of these Unix tools that each do one job:

     maddr(1)     to extract addresses from mail
     magrep(1)    to find mails matching a pattern
     mcom(1)      to write and send mail
     mdeliver(1)  to deliver messages or import mailboxes
     mdirs(1)     to find Maildir
     mexport(1)   to export mailboxes
     mflag(1)     to change flags (marks) of mail
     mfwd(1)      to forward mail
     mgenmid(1)   to generate Message-IDs
     mhdr(1)      to extract mail headers
     minc(1)      to incorporate new mail
     mless(1)     to conveniently read mail in less(1)
     mlist(1)     to list and filter mail messages
     mmime(1)     to create MIME messages
     mmkdir(1)    to create new Maildir
     mpick(1)     to filter mail
     mrep(1)      to reply to mail
     mscan(1)     to generate single line summaries of mail
     msed(1)      to manipulate mail headers
     mseq(1)      to manipulate mail sequences
     mshow(1)     to render mail and extract attachments
     msort(1)     to sort mail
     mthread(1)   to arrange mail into discussions

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.
