I am pleased to announce the release of nmh 1.5.  It is available for
download here:


There are a large number of changes in this release; the release notes
(see the NEWS file in the distribution) have more detail, but here are some

- comp, forw, and dist now process all drafts through mh-format(5)
  and now suport new command line arguments -from, -to, -cc, -fcc,
  and -subject.
- Nmh's idea of the local mailbox is now configurable via a new profile
  entry, Local-Mailbox.
- post now requires a “From:” header in all message that it processes.
  All components files have been adjusted to include an
  appropriate “From:” header by default.  The release notes have more
  information on how this transition will affect users.
- The -attach option is now the default for send (using the header
  Nmh-Attachment) and -attachformat 1 is the default attachment type.
- Command editing and filename completion (via readline) is now
  available in whatnow
- Support for using an external command to filter the body of a message
  through in mhl.  See mhl(1) for more details, specifically the format
  keyword, the formatproc entry in mh-profile(5), and the -fmtproc switch
  for mhl and repl.
- Preliminary support for improved MIME handling when replying to
  messages.  Yes, a long requested feature has a solution, and it can be
  used by higher-level interfaces such as exmh and MH-E.  See the release
  notes and docs/contrib/replyfilter for more information.

Thanks to all of the hard work of all of the contributors, and to
everyone who tried out the release candidates and gave feedback; it
is much appreciated.

As always, please send your feedback to address@hidden
