It's been too long in coming, but we've finally got a new release of nmh
to kick off the new year.

I am pleased to announce the release of nmh 1.4.  It is available for
download here:


This releases contains numerous bugfixes and a number of new features.
The new features include:

- SASL security layers (encryption) are now supported for the SMTP MTA.
- TLS is now supported for the SMTP MTA.
- inc can now incorporate mail from Maildir drops.
- You can now select the SMTP server and port from either "send" or a
  user's mh_profile (you could always select the server; that option is
  now documented).  These are available via the -server and -port switches.
- All networking code has been modified to use the new networking APIs
  (getaddrinfo and friends).  All networking code (with the exception of
  the built-in ftp client) now supports IPv6.
- New commands 'new', 'fnext', 'fprev', and 'unseen' for showing folders with
  unseen mail (or mail in any specified sequence), changing to next such
  folder, changing to previous such folder, and scanning all such folders,
  respectively.  This is based on Luke Mewburn's 'new':
- nmh will no longer attempt to install a mhn.defaults file that causes mhshow
  to open its own xterms.

A large chunk of old code has been garbage collected.  Specifically,
support for APOP, RPOP, NNTP (including bboards) and MPOP is now gone.
Also gone is support for prefixing a \01 in the "servers" entry in mts.conf
to iterate over all servers on a named network.

Feedback (including bugs) should be directed to the nmh-workers list at
