Greetings all,

I am pleased to announce the first release candidate (RC1) of nmh 1.5 is now
available.  You can find it for download here:


It may be a little while until all of the mirrors pick that up; if you
get an error, please try the following URL:


There are a large number of changes in this release; the release notes
(see the NEWS file in the distribution) have more detail, but I would
like to draw your attention to two changes in particular:

The first is that post(8) now requires a From: header in all drafts that
it processes.  This was done to bring some sanity to the way nmh determines
the local mailbox name.  The release notes have more details on this, but
a quick summary:

- If you use the default components files, the right thing will happen and
  you won't need to change anything.
- If you have custom components files that have From: headers in them already
  then you won't need to change anything.
- If you have custom components files in them that do NOT have From: headers
  in them you will need to update them.

The second change is that I have included in the distribution a perl script
that I have been working on that does what I feel is reasonable handling
of MIME message handling as part of repl(1).  This uses new functionality
in mhl and can be configured so it works fine with higher-level nmh
interfaces such as MH-E and exmh.  See the release notes and "replyfilter"
in docs/contrib for more information.

Please send email to address@hidden if you have any feedback.  If
we could do something to make it easier for you to try out the release
candidate (such as creating RPMs or packages for other operating systems)
then please let us know.
