   23 THANKS.
   25 NOTES, ChangeLog (packager-affine)
   26 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   28 - The USB stick loss reported for v14.9.6 was fake news, so to
   29   say, the stick exists and therefore the old key is not
   30   compromised.
   32 - We are back at Gmane.org!
   33     news.gmane.org/gmane.mail.s-mailx.general
   35 - `history'#? has learned to be context-sensitive a bit, and
   36   has two new subcommands, `load' and `save'.
   38     This is in parts backward incompatible because it needs a new
   39     *history-file*#? format; however, the old format can be loaded
   40     yet compose-mode commands will not appear in compose mode no
   41     more.  Iirc you can start with an old format then `save' to
   42     the new, then replace the "d" in the first column with "c" for
   43     compose-mode commands which should appear correctly.
   45 - Obsoletion warnings for variables now happen at `set'#?
   46   time instead of when used.  Running once via -v#? may
   47   be beneficial.
   49 - The saturation modifier of `vexpr'#? is henceforth a prefix,
   50   the suffix version is obsolete (but still supported for a while).
   52 - A network address that contains no domain-, but only a valid local
   53   user <name> in angle brackets will be automatically expanded to
   54   a valid address when *hostname*#? is set to a non-empty value;
   55   setting it to the empty value instructs us that the used *mta*#?
   56   (including builtin SMTP) will perform the necessary expansion.
   57   (Viktor SZÉPE)
   59   Note that *hostname*#? as well as *smtp-hostname*#?
   60   will now undergo IDNA expansion if IDNA is supported.
   62   And *from*#? and *sender*#? are now verified at `set'#?
   63   time, not when used.  (Viktor SZÉPE)
   65 - The commit message in [d503bd82] is wrong, apologies to
   66   Paride Legovini.  The test(1) operator "-n" appeared in Seventh
   67   Edition UNIX, not V8 as falsely claimed.
   69 ChangeLog
   70 ^^^^^^^^^
   72 - Our `addrcodec'#? parser chokes on lesser constructs.
   74 - Presence of command-line MTA arguments without *expandargv*#?
   75   are now a hard error.  It was my fault that this was not the
   76   default from the very start.  (Viktor SZÉPE)
   78 - Seen on the mutt bug tracker, we also still have had problems
   79   with time settings that cross 32-bit boundaries.  As that is
   80   in parts induced by the C standard, now implement those parts on
   81   our own, and be super careful in general.  (Joseph Bisch)
   83 - The `~@'#? command escape did not shell-unquote the user input
   84   again and was thus a bit broken; message attachments also work
   85   again.
   87 - Support custom headers from the command line via -C#?.
   88   And *customhdr*#? is verified upon `set'#? time.
   90 - The simple builtin HTML viewer now supports <blockquote>
   91   elements, which many web mailers, most notably gmail, use for
   92   citation.  (Peter J. Holzer)

  134 v14.9.6 ("Marsh tit abiding a snow storm"), 2017-12-05
  135 ------------------------------------------------------
  137 A bugfix release which fixes four serious and three other bugs.
  138 A few new features came in, too.
  140 Many thanks go to Ralph Corderoy who reported an issue that was
  141 caused by a terrible, terrible word reversal that i managed to
  142 produce in December 2016, and which caused the v14.9.x series to
  143 not MIME encode (non-address) content of address header fields!
  145 Credits, in order of commit appearance: Thomas Dickey,
  146 Andreas Baumann, Erich Eckner, Gaetan Bisson, Solar Designer, Cág,
  147 Ivan Tham, Ralph Corderoy and Doug McIlroy.
  149 We welcome Andreas Baumann, Erich Eckner, Solar Designer and Cág
  150 in THANKS.
  152 NOTES, ChangeLog (packager-affine)
  153 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
  155 - After USB stick loss the authors OpenPGP key has been switched to
  157     pub   4096R/1883A0DD 2017-11-30 [expires: 2027-11-28]

  160     uid                  Steffen Nurpmeso <steffen@sdaoden.eu>
  162 - $TMPDIR#591 no longer honoured for root runs.  (Solar Designer)
  164 - *mime-encoding*#436 defaults to quoted-printable again.  (Cág)
  166 - We _can_ MIME encode even header fields which contain addresses.
  167   Thanks to Ralph Corderoy we now also _do_ so again!
  169 ChangeLog
  170 ^^^^^^^^^
  172 - ***#336 now uses *ifs*#411 when splitting.
  174 - Freezing *ttycharset*#557 via -S#75 also survives using or
  175   setting any of $LC_ALL#573, $LC_CTYPE#574 and $LANG#575 during
  176   program startup.
  178 - New `local'#113 command modifier to localize changes.
  179   Yet supported only for `set'#253, i.e., we have gained
  180   macro-local variables.
  182 - `vexpr'#287 now supports a BASE#number notation for integers,
  183   like 16#AFFE as an alternative to 0xAFFE.
  185   Hint: variable settings can most often use several bases, too,
  186   e.g., i have "set mime-counter-evidence=0b1111".
  188 - Very simple form of *quote-chars*#479 to adjust our knowledge of
  189   what actually is to be treated as a quote character.
  191 - *mime-counter-evidence*#435 deep inspection (bit four) has
  192   been improved for the sole cases of quoting or displaying
  193   a message.  So messages with less than 25% of control characters
  194   and such will now be displayed (made printable).  This is yet
  195   not configurable nor do we have a way to easily access a message
  196   with more than that.  (Doug McIlroy)

  232 v14.9.5 ("Marsh tit engaged with a peanut"), 2017-10-21
  233 -------------------------------------------------------
  235 A bugfix release which fixes two bugs which were cast in stone.
  236 A few compatibility improvements (AlpineLinux, Solaris).
  237 And minor features.
  239 Apologies to Jörg Schilling, a git bug i think it was who caused
  240 joining of changesets, loosing a credit, and it had been pushed to
  241 [master] before the problem was realized.
  243 Credits, in order of commit appearance: Jörg Schilling,
  244 Doug McIlroy, Random832, Nick Stoughton and Ivan Tham.
  246 We welcome Nick Stoughton and Ivan Tham in THANKS.
  248 NOTES, ChangeLog (packager-affine)
  249 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
  251 - New OPT_USE_PKGSYS option can be disabled to not automatically
  252   pick known package system paths (pkg(7), OpenCSW, schily).
  253   (Jörg Schilling)
  255 ChangeLog
  256 ^^^^^^^^^
  258 - The software indeed _never_ dealt with iconv(3) output character
  259   set errors (as opposed to invalid input character set byte
  260   sequences etc.) for the main message body!
  261   And I have missed that when i tweaked our iconv layer a bit!
  263 - Fixed a race condition with sigsuspend(2) that i could only see
  264   on OpenBSD.  config.h offers n_SIGSUSPEND_NOT_WAITPID, by the
  265   way, which saves some systemcalls and did not run races, but
  266   noone adjusts this file.
  268 - Message list specifications gained two new colon modifiers, one
  269   can now "search :Ll" to find "Mailing lists"#10.
  270   The *headline*#402 format %T now also uses L and l rather than
  271   S and L accordingly.
  273   New `addrcodec'#129 subcommand `skinlist' acts like `skin'
  274   but stores in *!*#331 *^ERR*#333-EXIST if the address is
  275   one of the known "Mailing lists"#10.
  277 - `echo'#166 family now supports `vput'#116 and *!*#331 error
  278   storage, offering some kind of printf(1) experience, almost.
  280 git(1) shortlog (edited)
  281 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
  283 Steffen Nurpmeso (35):
  284 d76fd200 Fully support putenv(3) fallback (Jörg Schilling)
  285 ab0cd3b8 FIX iconv for main body part (since EVER!) (Doug McIlroy,
  286         Random832)..

  291         Stoughton)..

  299 9feaf8ae `addrcodec': add skinlist subcommand, skin+check whether mlist
  301 v14.9.4 ("(5th anniversary) Marsh tit"), 2017-09-18
  302 ---------------------------------------------------
  304 This is an update feature release but which also ships a furious
  305 number of bug fixes, about six of which were pretty serious.  It
  306 also applies overall trimming, and improves configuration time
  307 compatibility on macOS.
  309 Thanks to Alexander Harm there is now a macOS Homebrew package.
  311 Credits, in order of commit appearance: Paul Vojta, Daniel Lublin,
  312 Alexander Harm, Norman Ramsey, Viktor Szépe, Rich Salz,
  313 David Čepelík, Ralph Corderoy, Stéphane Chazelas, Aharon Robbins,
  314 Ken Hornstein.
  316 We welcome Daniel Lublin, Alexander Harm, David Čepelík and
  317 Stéphane Chazelas in THANKS.
  319 NOTES, ChangeLog (packager-affine)
  320 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
  322 - Out-of-tree builds have become possible via the new
  323   make-emerge.sh script:
  325   $ cd /tmp && mkdir build && cd build &&
  326     ~/src/nail.git/make-emerge.sh &&
  327     make tangerine DESTDIR=.ddir
  329   We now have a `citron' make target which is like `tangerine' but
  330   does not run the tests.
  332 - Configuration with OPT_AUTOCC honours $CC=cc. (Norman Ramsey)
  334 - SSL/TLS configuration has been revamped (again) in order to
  335   support new possibilities of OpenSSL (and LibreSSL) without
  336   ending up and introducing more and more variables.
  338   Instead we now have *ssl-config-pairs*#540, a comma-separated
  339   list of all options.  With e.g. OpenSSL 1.1.xx this will be
  340   directly passed through to SSL_CONF_cmd(), so there _anything_
  341   can be passed, otherwise we use a builtin parser to map.
  342   The new *ssl-features*#544 states what is supported.  E.g.:
  344     if [ "$ssl-features" =% +ctx-set-maxmin-proto ]
  345       wysh set ssl-config-pairs='\
  346           CipherList=TLSv1.2:!aNULL:!eNULL:@STRENGTH,\
  347           Curves=P-521:P-384:P-256,\
  348           MinProtocol=TLSv1.1'
  349     else
  350       wysh set ssl-config-pairs='\
  351           CipherList=TLSv1.2:!aNULL:!eNULL:@STRENGTH,\
  352           Curves=P-521:P-384:P-256,\
  353           Protocol=-ALL\,+TLSv1.1 \, +TLSv1.2'
  354     endif
  356   OpenSSL v1.1.xx also introduces an interesting and neat idea to
  357   centralize SSL/TLS configuration of (all) programs in a single
  358   file.  This can be driven via *ssl-config-file*#538 and the new
  359   *ssl-config-module*#539 variables, several entries per program
  360   are allowed, see *ssl-config-module*#539 for an example.
  362   New manual section "Encrypted network communication"#13.
  364 - Variables set or unset via -S#75 are now frozen until program
  365   startup is complete.
  367 ChangeLog
  368 ^^^^^^^^^
  370 - Historical behaviour of *askcc*#347 / *askbcc*#348 has been
  371   reintroduced.  (Norman Ramsey)
  373   A new *asksend*#349 variable will show a final header summary
  374   and allows reentering compose mode.  Set by default.
  376   POSIX mirrors *ask* onto *asksub*#351, so dropped" the former.
  378 - `~^'#304 no longer normalizes header names to titlecase.
  380 - We no longer generate charset=binary MIME parameters.
  381   This was introduced on 2013-01-02 and was i think owed to
  382   file(1)s -i output as i failed to find any other reference.
  383   (Normal Ramsey)
  385 - *mime-alternative-favour-rich*#434 now also works for handlers
  386   installed via *pipe-TYPE/SUBTYPE*#459. (Viktor Szépe)
  388 - v14.9.* series did not generate In-Reply-To: headers!
  390 - `alias'#130 now supports high-bit bytes and semicolon.
  391   Expect that at some later time the input must be valid according
  392   to the locale, though. (Norman Ramsey)
  394 - Combinations of *record*#483 could crash because of an
  395   unterminated variable function argument list. (Norman Ramsey)
  397 - New command `readall'#233 loads an entire file into a variable.
  399   *signature*#503 has been obsoleted.
  401 - `vexpr'#287 now supports negative arguments for the substring
  402   subcommand and adds trim, trim-front and trim-end subcommands.
  404 - `!'#120 can be used in send mode.
  406 - `~A'#305, `~a'#306, `~I'#315 and `~i'#316 will henceforth expand
  407   \t and \n only if *posix*#472 is set.
  408   Please use `set'#253 instead (with `wysh'#117, until v15).
  410 - New "The mime.types files"#35 type marker: @q ("quiet").

  465 v14.9.3 ("Crested tit nibbling sunflower seeds"), 2017-08-03
  466 ------------------------------------------------------------
  468 This is a bugfix release but which ships some improvements, too.
  469 It silently replaces both of v14.9.1 v14.9.2 from earlier this
  470 week, which were broken or not entirely fixed.
  472 Credits, in order of commit appearance: Felix Fontein, Paul Vojta,
  473 Ralph Corderoy, Christos Zoulas, Gavin Troy, Gaetan Bisson.
  474 Thanks, Coverity.com.
  476 We welcome Christos Zoulas in THANKS.
  478 Apologies to Viktor Szépe for the false spelling of his name in
  479 the v14.9.0 announcement.
  480 And to Gaetan Bisson for not giving credit for [14fbce97]!
  482 NOTES, ChangeLog (packager-affine)
  483 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
  485 - fakeroot support was blindly taken from Debian and broken.
  486   (Gavin Troy, Gaetan Bisson)
  488 - Base64 output was broken for cases which involved iconv(3).
  489   The data is not lost, you can read it with S-nail v14.9.0 and
  490   above, and save it somewhere.  I know of no other base64 decoder
  491   which reads those things correctly, though.  We now have tests.
  492   Along this i fixed an iconv(3) error which likely caused
  493   stateful decoding (like, e.g., for ISO-2022-JP) to fail because
  494   of an unnecessary reset of the iconv(3) state machine.
  495   Thanks to Gaetan Bisson for mentioning this issue!
  497 ChangeLog
  498 ^^^^^^^^^
  500 - In compose mode the MLE allows empty lines again.
  502 - We no longer require a writable $HOME#572.  Due to false code
  503   flow (but but but: with correct comment) a non-writable $HOME
  504   entry in /etc/password (i.e., from getpwuid(3)) would lead to
  505   a crash.  (Felix Fontain; Ralph Corderoy)
  507 - Two faulty string operations slipped into the IMAP code,
  508   resulting in a crash and a "is-same-host" test that would fail
  509   for IMAPS connections like `save'#250 or `copy'#152 because of an
  510   implicit IMAP protocol for the target of those operations (thus
  511   IMAP != IMAPS).  (Paul Vojta)
  513 - The MLE tab-expansion will now automatically append a "/" if
  514   there is only one possible expansion and that is a directory,
  515   saving the user one <TAB>.  (Christos Zoulas)
  517   The shell expression parser had a bug regarding understood
  518   metacharacters (;|&), which in turn could cause an infinite loop
  519   in the MLE tab-expansion for, e.g., "move &9 +<TAB>", because
  520   the "&" would never have been stepped over.
  522 - New `~I'#315 command escape is like `~i'#316 but does not append
  523   a newline.
  525 - `localopts'#202 gained an optional second argument.
  526   It is now possible to specify that any macro `call'#138ed
  527   will have localopts enabled, and it is possible to fixate the
  528   setting so that it cannot be reverted.
  530 - *@*#337 should now act completely compatible to the sh(1)ell,
  531   thus obsoleting my hysteric warnings in the v14.9.0 announcement.
  533 - The `Lreply'#203, `reply'#238, `Reply'#237 series as well as
  534   `mail'#205 now manage the error status *!*#331.
  535   I.e., there are now errors like *^ERR*#333-DESTADDRREQ,
  536   ^ERR-NODATA, ^ERR-PERM and similar.  It is not perfect yet,
  537   because $DEAD#570 may have been written (with *save*#491) or not,
  538   for example.
  540   `Lreply' and `reply' have been rewritten rather completely
  541   indeed.  They join Reply-To: and Mail-Followup-To: dependent on
  542   the context (i.e., *reply-to-honour*#489, *followup-to-honour*#396,
  543   see "Mailing lists"#10 for the picture), and if they did, use
  544   this list as the receivers exclusively.  It now honours
  545   *recipients-in-cc*#482 even for such addressees.  (And now i wonder
  546   whether i should have credited Paul Vojta for that.)
  548   Also `Lreply' would have crashed for mails with Reply-To: but
  549   without *reply-to-honour*#489 set.  We now have a test.
  551   Note *replyto* is obsoleted in favour of *reply-to*#488.

  569 v14.9.0 ("Long-tailed tit"), 2017-07-16
  570 ---------------------------------------
  572 This is a major feature release which took about ~22 months (24
  573 less two) of development to complete, and which imposed massive
  574 changes under the hood, but also quite a lot of user visible
  575 changes, including some **backward incompatibilities**.
  576 As usual, "s-nail -d" will show obsoletion warnings.
  578 We gain noticeable improvements regarding scriptability and its
  579 reliability, but also for interactive use cases, especially
  580 notable to users is our completely new M(ailx)L(ine)E(ditor) that
  581 supports rather real tabulator expansion and program-mode-context-
  582 sensitive key bindings.
  584 We now support macros with arguments, which can be `shift'ed,
  585 a `return' status can be used, and a `vexpr' multiplexer offers
  586 some arithmetic and string operations.  `commandalias'es are
  587 recursive, further command modifier prefixes, like `ignerr', give
  588 a hand that we otherwise could not offer.  In compose-mode the new
  589 `~^' command escape allows some message and attachment access, and
  590 can be used, e.g., to implement things like custom headers, and
  591 has been especially designed for scripted access via the new
  592 *on-compose-splice* and *on-compose-splice-shell* hooks.
  594 S-nail will move (more or less) backward-incompatibly to sh(1)ell
  595 compatible argument quoting (documented in "COMMANDS"), and an
  596 increasing number of commands do support this already: new ones
  597 exclusively, some old ones have either been switched (like
  598 `localopts'), others -- noticeably `set' -- can be switched to the
  599 new syntax with a `wysh' command modifier prefix.  E.g.:
  601   ? define __xv {
  602     # Be careful to choose sh(1)ell-style on _entire_ line!
  603      localopts yes; wysh set verbose; ignerr eval "${@}"; return $?
  604     }
  605   ? commandalias call echo boo-boo
  606   ? commandalias xv call __xv
  607   ? xv list
  608   ? commandalias xv '\'call __xv
  609   ? xv list
  611 Calling the latter `xv' for `list' will give more detailed command
  612 information, including which kind of argument is used.
  614 I have not managed to implement the three features i have started
  615 this development cycle for, these are thus subject to further
  616 development, just like wysh for message-list argument commands to
  617 support, e.g., negation, wysh for `if' and consorts, the --
  618 terminator to finally overcome the ridiculous requirement to quote
  619 entire shell commands filenames for commands like `pipe.
  620 And and and.

  649 NOTES, ChangeLog (packager-affine)
  650 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
  652 * This release brings some backward incompatibilities, outlined
  653   in the following.  Most users will not be affected, and we have
  654   added a lot of compatibility cruft, but that will vanish in v15.
  655   "$ s-nail -v"!
  657 * The configuration and build system has changed.
  658   Packagers have received updated package files.
  660   o Anything which was WANT_xy before is now OPT_xy, and
  661     compiled-in paths and values, like PREFIX or PAGER, have
  662     gained a VAL_ prefix (thus VAL_PREFIX and VAL_PAGER).
  664     This is _not_ true for non-persistent or environmental values,
  665     e.g., DESTDIR, CC, etc., and also not for the overwritable
  666     program variables during configuration, e.g., $awk.
  669     MAILSPOOL -> VAL_MAIL.
  670     And NAIL -> VAL_MAILX, though this is still a lie.
  672   o The make system now needs config..build..install or
  673     all..install or tangerine (config..build..test..install).
  674     Some constants which some experts may want to fine-tune have
  675     been moved to config.h.  Usual adjustments+doc via make.rc.
  677   o The `build' phase can be parallelized by setting the $MAKEJOBS
  678     environment variable, e.g., "make MAKEJOBS=-j4 build".
  679     Note this variable is not tracked in the configuration.
  680     (Gaetan Bisson)
  682   o Unless DESTDIR is set an uninstallation script will be
  683     installed along with the rest (see INSTALL file for more).
  685   o Set the new OPT_CROSS_BUILD to avoid feature runtime tests,
  686     only compile- and link-availability will be tested.  (Juan RP)
  688   o VERBOSE is implemented straight, but must be given at
  689     configuration time in order to become honoured.
  690     (William Yodlowsky)
  694   o The LD_LIBRARY_PATH etc. building processes will skip any path
  695     which contains the string "fakeroot".  (Hilko Bengen)
  697   o We honour a set $SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH#589 environment variable to
  698     an extend that allows reproducible tests, which is why the
  699     repository gained a [test-out] branch with some expected plain
  700     text outputs.  (reproducible-builds.org; Colin Watson)
  702     The new *log-prefix*#422 variable aids in improving the
  703     reproducibility of error messages.
  705   o These are upward compatible changes.
  707 * "make OPENSSL_API_COMPAT=0x10100000 all" should work.
  709 * Internal and environment variables are now explicitly _defined_
  710   and _tracked_ after variable handling has been rewritten
  711   completely.  Notes:
  713   o This means that, e.g., "$ password=NOT_SECRET s-nail" will
  714     **NOT** work no more, since *password*#457 is an internal
  715     variable!
  717   o But if you do, e.g., "? set TMPDIR=~/tmp", then this will
  718     also be reflected in the program environment (it is an
  719     environment variable) and thus affect child processes.
  721   o Therefore we no longer have `setenv' and `unsetenv'.
  723   o To integrate any other environment variable transparently
  724     into our variable management, the new command `environ'#174
  725     needs to be used, e.g., "? environ set NEWVAR=value" or
  726     "? environ link EXISTINGVAR".
  728 - -H#64 and -L#67 have been decoupled:
  729    it used to be -e#61 -L#67 instead!
  731 - *NAIL_{HEAD,TAIL}* have been obsoleted in favour of
  732   *message-inject-head*#430 and *message-inject-tail*#431.
  734   *NAIL_HIST{FILE,SIZE}* have been obsoleted in favour of
  735   *history-file*#404 and *history-size*#407.
  737   *NAIL_EXTRA_RC* has been obsoleted in favour of
  738   *mailx-extra-rc*#425.
  740   *batch-exit-on-error* has been obsoleted by *errexit*#386, which
  741   works just like the POSIX sh(1)ell "set -e" construct; the
  742   `ignerr'#112 command modifier (`-' for command escapes in compose
  743   mode, and see below) can be used to ignore command errors even
  744   then.  (This will remain even if we at some later time will
  745   support at least some of the sh(1) constructs which "swallow"
  746   failures with set -e.)
  748   *bsdannounce* is obsolete, the feature is integrated in
  749   *header*#401 as this is much more useful.  (This is however also
  750   dependent upon the also new but well-known $POSIXLY_CORRECT#587
  751   <> *posix*#472, but that is just how it is; these affect more
  752   behaviour, and increasing.)
  754 - Colour support has been changed backward in- and upward (from
  755   user interface side) compatibly, see the manual section
  756   "Coloured display"#18.
  758   + New commands: `colour'#147 and `uncolour'#148.
  759     You can define context-sensitive, terminal-capability-
  760     sensitive settings, e.g.:
  762       if terminal && [ "$features" =% +colour ]
  763         colour iso  view-header ft=bold,fg=magenta,bg=cyan
  764         colour 256  view-header ft=bold,fg=208,bg=230 subject,from
  765         colour mono view-header ft=bold
  766         colour mono view-header ft=bold,ft=reverse subject,from
  767       endif
  769   + The variable *colour-pager*#372 defines whether colour and font
  770     attribute sequences should be generated when viewing something
  771     in $PAGER#585.
  773   + Set the variable *colour-disable*#371 to turn colour off
  774     without affecting established settings.
  776   + It is deduced via termcap(5) (see below) whether the terminal
  777     supports colors, e.g., "$ s-nail -Stermcap=Co#256".
  778     This is also true if we don't have termcap support.
  780   + Support for 256-colour terminals. (Gavin Troy)
  782 - `source'#265 series support shell pipes if the last character
  783    of the "filename" ends with a vertical bar |, e.g.,
  785       ? source 'gpg -qd ~/.s-nailrc-private.gpg |'
  787 - Shell pipes are also supported as targets for `move'#215,
  788   `copy'#152 etc., yet unfortunately not with via a sh(1)ell token
  789   parser, so that the target still has to be a single argument.
  791       ? copy . '| cat; echo huhu'
  793 - Support for custom headers via the new `~^'#304 compose-mode
  794   command escape and in addition, or alternatively, with the
  795   internal variable *customhdr*#376, which also can be covered by
  796   `localopts'#202.  (Sergey Matveev)
  798   + Support of $ORGANIZATION has been dropped.
  800   + Command escape `~e'#310 supports _any_ header.
  802   + Command escape `~^'#304 supports _any_ header.
  804 - New -:#53 command line option can be used to more easily select
  805   which startup files should be loaded, e.g., -:/ loads none.
  806   (Robert Elz)
  808 - `account'#127s and *folder-hook*#393s now have `localopts'#202
  809    enabled by default.
  811 - A first simple form of compose-mode hooks has been implemented:
  812   *on-compose-enter*#450, *on-compose-leave*#451 and
  813   *on-compose-cleanup*#449 can be set to macros which get invoked
  814   at appropriate times.
  815   For the `resend'#242 series there is *on-resend-enter*#455 and
  816   *on-resend-cleanup*#454: this is very likely to change once
  817   true message access is possible even in this mode.
  819   An even more powerful mechanism is available via the also new
  820   *on-compose-splice*#452 and *on-compose-splice-shell*#453 hooks.
  821   These are executed in child processes and communicate with the
  822   parent via their standard input and output, and therefore can
  823   do anything and act as if they were the user.
  825   `localopts'#202 are enabled and cannot be disabled (and extend
  826   until the message is sent).
  827   (Jens Schleusener, Rudolf Sykora)
  829     ? set on-compose-splice=ocs
  830     ? define ocs {
  831       read ver
  832       echo Splice protocol version is $ver
  833       echo '~^header list'
  834       read hl; vput vexpr es substring "${hl}" 0 1
  835       if [ "$es" != 2 ]
  836         echoerr 'Failed to read header list, bailing out'
  837         echo '~x'
  838       elif [ "$hl" @i!% ' cc' ]
  839         echo '~^header insert cc Diet is your <mirr.or>'
  840         read es; vput vexpr es substr "${es}" 0 1
  841         if [ "$es" != 2 ]
  842           echoerr 'Failed to insert Cc:, bailing out'; echo '~x'
  843         end
  844       end
  845     }
  847 - "The .netrc file"#37
  849   + gained support for comments.
  850     (Walter Alejandro Iglesias, Ralph Corderoy)
  852   + `netrc'#218 now has a "load" subcommand.
  854   + the new *netrc-pipe*#444 obsoletes OPT_AGENT and
  855     *agent-shell-lookup*, and can be used to load an encrypted
  856     .netrc file, e.g.:
  858       ? set netrc-lookup netrc-pipe='gpg -qd ~/.netrc.gpg'
  860     I.e., this is in usual .netrc syntax and thus possibly much
  861     nicer than saying "? source 'gpg -qd ~/.credentials.gpg |'".
  863 - termcap(5) / terminfo(5) support has been changed backward in-
  864   and upward (from user interface side) compatibly, please read
  865   "On terminal control and line editor"#17.
  867   + OPT_TERMCAP is by default enabled.
  868     The new, by default enabled, configuration option
  869     OPT_TERMCAP_VIA_TERMINFO can be used to (try to) use
  870     terminfo(5) instead.
  872   + The variable *termcap*#552 can be used to freely define or
  873     override terminal capabilities, and *termcap-disable*#554 will
  874     disable interaction with the chosen library, leaving only
  875     *termcap* in charge.
  877     To use the so-called ca-mode on supporting terminals,
  878     effectively turning S-nail into a fullscreen application,
  879     *termcap-ca-mode*#553 must be set.
  881   + The built-in line editor has been rather completely rewritten
  882     to be the Mailx-Line-Editor (OPT_MLE, default yes), and
  883     supports wide glyphs (if possible), infinite line lengths
  884     (2 GB) and more.  Tabulator expansion is no longer an option
  885     (but needs fnmatch(3)).
  887   + Optionally (OPT_KEY_BINDINGS, default yes) it has become
  888     possible to freely define key bindings for the MLE via the new
  889     `bind'#136 and `unbind'#137 commands.  These key bindings can
  890     make use of termcap(5) and/or terminfo(5) names.  The MLE will
  891     install a set of default bindings (unless there is a set
  892     *line-editor-no-defaults*#421), more so with OPT_TERMCAP,
  893     i.e., try "? bind*".
  895     Sufficient support provided, one can now, e.g., type "p " and
  896     then collect the message numbers to type, scrolling forward
  897     and backward via key-bindings, without loosing the line
  898     content, then commit the final line.
  900   + OPT_EDITLINE and OPT_READLINE support have been dropped.
  901     The new MLE should not miss anything.  Does it?
  902     Tip: in an UTF-8 locale try "? !touch /tmp/hall{,öchen}" and
  903     then autocomplete that: once, then ^Q, and again.
  905 - `source'#265 can be used in `call'#138ed macros.
  906   What sounds so innocent replaced an entire machinery and got rid
  907   of a brilliant idea of Kurt Shoens from the 70s, but which never
  908   worked with Nail/Heirloom extensions, namely macros, and in the
  909   right order.
  910   Accompanying this -X#81 can (dig multiline arguments and can) be
  911   used to define macros and run them etc.  Should work:
  913     $ s-nail -X'define x {' -Xversion -Xx -X'}' -X'call x'
  914     $ s-nail -X'source \' -X'"echo version|"' -Xx
  916   Macros can be `undefine'#157d from within themselves, and re-
  917   `define'#156d.  It is still not possible to define macros
  918   from within macros, and/or have inner macros, not to talk
  919   about local scoping or anything more sophisticated such.
  921 - -u#78 / $LOGNAME#578 ($USER) handling has been redefined,
  922   and "-u USER" is now exactly the same as "-f %USER", and
  923   $LOGNAME (and $USER) is actively set to the active user.  (Afan)
  925   $LOGNAME#578 is POSIX standardized and henceforth used and
  926   preferred over $USER, which came from BSD.  (Todd C. Miller)
  928 - In the future (at least non-message-list) argument handling will
  929   be changed backward-incompatibly to be sh(1)ell compatible (and
  930   thus POSIX standardized), see "Shell-style argument quoting"#24.
  931   New commands use it already today (`bind'#136, `colour'#147,
  932   `headerpick'#193), some others (most importantly, `set'#253) can
  933   be forced to do so via the new `wysh'#117 command prefix, as in:
  935     ? wysh set message-inject-tail=$'\n--steffen'
  936     ? bind base $'\cA,\x61' 'echo control-A and small a'
  938 - We now actively manage *umask*#559: 0077 by default, but an
  939   empty string will use the setting that is active upon startup.
  940   Just like changes to (known) environment variables, this setting
  941   will also be inherited by any child process.
  942   (Walter Alejandro Iglesias)
  944 - Anything SENDMAIL / *sendmail*-ish has been renamed to *mta*#438,
  945   *mta-arguments*#439, *mta-no-default-arguments*#440 and
  946   *mta-argv0*#442.
  948   The reason is that in v15 we won't even have *smtp*: it is just
  949   another form of MTA, and thus obsolete by itself.
  950   Note that *mta-arguments* is now parsed via the shell-token
  951   parser, so the following ends up exactly as desired.
  953     ? set mta-arguments='-t -X "/tmp/my log"'
  955   For now we support a hack that understands a file:// URL in
  956   *mta*, too, but that is also the default if there is no protocol.
  957   E.g.: "? set mta=smtp://a:b@xy.z"
  959 - The "spamd" *spam-interface*#522 is obsolete.  I haven't tested
  960   it since my main machine died, it is error prone since it assumes
  961   internals of the spamassassin wire protocol, and there never was
  962   a speed improvement over "spamc".  (However it could react upon
  963   the "is-spam" state of a message, which "spamc" doesn't allow.)
  965 - The new *inbox*#415 variable will henceforth be looked up when
  966   searching for a primary system mailbox (as in "? File %"),
  967   followed by the usual $MAIL#579 and compile-time defined local
  968   mailspool search.  (Stephen Isard, Jürgen Daubert)
  970 - The semantic of -a#55 and `~@'#302 have been changed, and both
  971   commands now use the same syntax:
  973     -a file[=input-charset[#output-charset]]
  975 - New "failinvaddr" keyword for *expandaddr*#388.
  977 - We finally "can" the so-called (by myself) "Dr. Problem" (a bit):
  978   (Dr. Werner Fink)
  980     $ </dev/null s-nail -d:/ -sTrödler 'Dr. D. Iet <z@a.k>' 2>&1 |\
  981       grep To:
  982     s-nail: >>> To: "Dr. D. Iet" <z@a.k>
  984   This can be done via the new `addrcodec'#129, too, note this
  985   supports multiple modes (and the `vput'#116 command modifier):
  987     $ echo 'addrcodec e Dr. Diet <to@fu.soj> Curd' | s-nail -#:/
  988     "Dr. Diet Curd" <to@fu.soj>
  990 - All commands with the string "codec" in their name use different
  991   argument quoting, namely none at all, please read
  992   "Raw data arguments for codec commands"#25.
  993   This means that `urlcodec'#282 (and `imapcodec'#617) has
  994   slightly changed semantics.
  995   And, while here: there is a new `shcodec'#255, too.
  997 - We gained "Command modifiers"#21: `\'#111 (avoid expansion of
  998   `commandalias'#149es), `vput'#116 (store result in variable),
  999   `ignerr'#112  (ignore an error of the following command, even
 1000   if the new *errexit*#386 is set), `wysh'#117 (use shell-style
 1001   arguments).
 1003     $ echo 'vput cwd resvar;echo $resvar' | s-nail -#:/
 1004     /home/steffen/src/nail.git
 1006   And the usual sh(1) stuff: `return'#248, `shift'#259, `eval'#176,
 1007   plus a `xcall'#291 stack-avoidance optimization (to be used in
 1008   place of a `call'#138 which would be the last called command).
 1009   And an "expr(1) like thing", yet simple, `vexpr'#287.
 1011     $ echo 'vexpr + 1 2' | s-nail -#:/
 1012     00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000011
 1013     03 | 0x3 | 3
 1014     $ echo 'vput vexpr resvar + 1 2;echo $resvar' | s-nail -#:/
 1015     3
 1017   We actually start walking (*?*#330, *^*#332).
 1019     ? vput vexpr res regex 'bananarama' 'Bana(.+)' '\$1\$0'
 1020     ? echo $?/$^ERRNAME :$res:
 1021     1/NODATA ::
 1022     ? vput vexpr res iregex 'bananarama' '(.+)rama' '\$1\$0'
 1023     ? echo $?/$^ERRNAME :$res:
 1024     0/NONE :bananabananarama:
 1026   The command `vpospar'#288 can be used to manage the stack of
 1027   positional parameters, i.e., much like "set --".
 1028   It also offers the possibility to save and restore the stack to
 1029   and from variables.  Etc.
 1031   Btw., to contact the maintainer (make.rc variables
 1034     ? echo $contact-web; eval mail $contact-mail
 1036 - `if'#199 no longer performs automatic number conversion, we
 1037   use the explicit -lt, -gt etc. syntax of the sh(1).
 1038   Note: `if' will change to be almost identical to sh(1) if(1),
 1039   so please ensure proper test bracketing, even if it is less
 1040   convenient.
 1042   Moreover, the default string comparison mode has changed to
 1043   case-sensitive, just like in the shell.  This is because in the
 1044   future this crux with trigger characters will vanish and `if'
 1045   etc. will simply slurp in already expanded shell tokens, it will
 1046   act like the shell in that respect.  We have modifiers, though,
 1047   yet only "@i" for case-insensitivity, also for regex matches:
 1049     LC_ALL=C
 1050     i=`LC_ALL=C.utf8 s-nail -:/ -# -X '
 1051        \define cset_test {
 1052           \if [ "${ttycharset}" @i=% utf ]
 1053              \echo $LC_ALL
 1054              \xit 0
 1055           \end
 1056           \if [ "${#}" -gt 0 ]
 1057              \wysh set LC_ALL=${1}
 1058              \shift
 1059              \eval xcall cset_test "${@}"
 1060           \end
 1061           \xit 1
 1062        }
 1063        \call cset_test C.UTF-8 POSIX.utf8 POSIX.UTF-8 \
 1064           en_EN.utf8 en_EN.UTF-8 en_US.utf8 en_US.UTF-8
 1065    '`
 1066    [ $? -eq 0 ] && UTF8_LOCALE=$i
 1068   Please note the `eval' in 'eval xcall cset_test "${@}".  This is
 1069   a difference of S-nail/mailx and the sh(1)ell that will remain,
 1070   as documented in "COMMANDS"#20: whereas the shell implements
 1071   a language and performs standardized expansions on the line
 1072   until finally the command is called, S-nail will decide the type
 1073   of command line parsing dependent on the seen command, and will
 1074   then perform a single expansion.  Therefore "${@}" will expand
 1075   to multiple arguments if $# is greater 0, but it will expand to
 1076   the empty string otherwise, which is not furtherly expanded away
 1077   since it is meaningless like it is in the shell: therefore $#
 1078   will be 1 (the empty string) not 0.
 1080 - Using an explicit proto:// prefix should get you the desired
 1081   thing apart of *newfolders*#445, e.g.:
 1083     ? File maildir:///tmp/x.mdir
 1084     ? copy * file:///tmp/x.mbox
 1086 - New variable *record-files*#484 can be set to extend the meaning
 1087   of *record*#483.  *record-resent*#485 was there already.
 1089 - New variable *ifs*#411 acts a bit like the sh(1)ell's $IFS for,
 1090   e.g., the new `read'#232 command.
 1092   There is a `readctl'#234 command which can be used to manage
 1093   the active channel used by `read'#232.
 1095 - The `~' alias for `call'#138 is gone.
 1097 - `mimetype'#207 only allows specification of a single type per
 1098   call, on the other hand no need to quote that.
 1100 - `mimeview'#211 must now be used explicitly to look at any
 1101   non-text MIME part, for normal display etc. purposes we only
 1102   support "copiousoutput"#604 MIME handlers.
 1104 - New *socks-proxy*#521 can be used to proxy all network traffic
 1105   over a SOCKS5 proxy.  (Gaetan Bisson)
 1107 ChangeLog
 1108 ^^^^^^^^^
 1110 - The manual has seen another major overhaul, all the variables
 1111   are now documented in a single, sorted list, and many
 1112   clarifications should have been added.  I hope it has become
 1113   a better read.
 1114   (Predrag Punosevac, Michael Convey, Hariskar, Rudolf Sykora,
 1115   Respiranto, Thomas Dickey, Donald Mugnai)
 1117 - To support RFC 1524 a.k.a. .mailcap files (see below) many
 1118   "trigger"-characters have been added for *pipe-TYPE/SUBTYPE*#459,
 1119   which may (rarely) affect existing values.
 1120   The .mailcap support itself is not yet implemented.
 1122 - *mime-counter-evidence*#435 gained bit 4 (perform proper in-depth
 1123   content inspection as necessary; set to 0xE for all bits).
 1124   (Aharon Robbins)
 1126 - Maildir paths are now created recursively as necessary.
 1127   (Justin Ellingwood)
 1129 - -M#68 and -m#69 options have been added to enforce a special
 1130   send mode that will flag standard input / the given file with
 1131   the specified / detected MIME 'Content-Type:'.  This can be used
 1132   to directly send, e.g., HTML log output.
 1133   (Viktor Szépe, Ralph Corderoy)
 1135 - Disallow symlinks on writable files.  Note this requires
 1136   O_NOFOLLOW support for the operating-system-call open(2), but
 1137   which has been standardized a long time ago.
 1138   (Matthew Dillon)
 1140 - `retain'#247, `ignore'#200 etc. now differentiate in between
 1141   From (the From: header) and From_ (the MBOX ident).
 1143   In fact we now have a new `headerpick'#193 command which
 1144   is a multiplexer for all retain and ignore lists used, call it
 1145   without arguments to see the current setting(s).
 1146   In v15 only `headerpick' and the standard-imposed wrappers
 1147   `retain' and `ignore' will remain, all other wrappers will
 1148   vanish.  Regular expressions can now be used if available:
 1150     ? headerpick
 1151       headerpick type retain blahblahblah cc date from \
 1152         mail-followup-to message-id openpgp reply-to subject to \
 1153         user-agent
 1154       #headerpick type ignore currently covers no fields
 1155       #headerpick save retain currently covers no fields
 1156       headerpick save ignore '^Original-.*$' '^X-.*$' '^DKIM.*$'
 1157       headerpick forward retain cc date from list-id \
 1158         mail-followup-to openpgp reply-to subject to
 1159       #headerpick forward ignore currently covers no fields
 1161 - `top'#274 has been rewritten completely, `Top'#273 is new.
 1162   It uses a built-in set of retain/ignore headers, but it is
 1163   possible to register a custom set via `headerpick'#193.
 1164   Also, *toplines*#555 has been extended a bit and the new
 1165   *topsqueeze*#556 variable may pimp your `top' experience.
 1167     ? headerpick top retain add subject
 1168     ? top

 1172     I wrote:
 1173         3.22. bounce_delivered
 1175 - `features' has been dropped, `version'#286 extended.
 1177 - The *prompt*#474 handling has changed: we lost the capability to
 1178   expand \?, \@ and \$, instead new "private" variables *?*#330,
 1179   *account*#341, *mailbox-resolved*#424 and
 1180   *mailbox-display*#423 have been introduced, and the prompt
 1181   is completely shell expanded (thus twice with `wysh' or in v15),
 1182   as if dollar-single-quote quoted.  We do support the reverse-
 1183   solidus escaped bracket notation for embedding characters which
 1184   should not be counted when calculating the width of the prompt.
 1185   The `colour'#147 command has a slot for the prompt colour.
 1186   We gained *prompt2*#475 as a second level prompt.
 1188     ? var prompt
 1189     wysh set \
 1190       prompt='?\${?}!\${!}[\${account}#\${mailbox-display}]? '
 1192 - The filename "-" can be used as a receiver, e.g.,
 1194     $ echo Hey,\ you | s-nail -:/ -Sexpandaddr -sUB -
 1196 - The -s#76 command line option, the `~s'#323 command escape
 1197   as well as the corresponding slots of `~^'#304 will actively
 1198   strip [\r\n] from their value (Debian #419840).
 1200 - New `read'#232 and `echoerr'#167 commands, mostly for
 1201   *on-compose-splice*#452.
 1202   But also `echon'#168 and `echoerrn'#169, which do not write
 1203   a trailing newline.
 1205 - New variable *r-option-implicit*#481 may be helpful to those
 1206   who regulary need the functionality of the -r#74 command
 1207   line option.  (Felipe Gasper, Martin Neitzel)
 1209 - By using new "pseudo-URLs" one can automatize the use of S/MIME
 1210   keys / (certificates / intermediate include certificates) with
 1211   passwords.  E.g., to drive bob@exam.ple, set
 1212   *smime-sign-cert-bob@exam.ple* to the private key / certificate
 1213   pair as usual, the password lookup will then be performed for
 1214   bob@exam.ple.smime-cert-key, bob@exam.ple.smime-cert-cert and
 1215   bob@exam.ple.smime-include-certs.
 1216   Like this the password can be stored in an encrypted .netrc file
 1217   when *netrc-lookup*#443 and *netrc-pipe*#444 are set, or it may
 1218   be stored in an encrypted resource file that has been loaded via
 1219   `source'#265 as a simple *password*#457 variable.
 1221   Note that the prompting that happens as a last resort of
 1222   password lookup will still interfere with a possibly running
 1223   $PAGER#585 instance, dependent on the setting of *crt*#375, of
 1224   course.  Proper job control handling and recognizing that we are
 1225   running $PAGER when doing that prompt is a TODO for v15.  Sorry.
 1227 - Some commands, like `set'#253, `help'#196, `list'#201,
 1228   `mlist'#209 etc., now react upon the setting of *verbose*#562
 1229   and(/or) *debug*#379.
 1231 - `write'#290 uses iconv(3) as appropriate.
 1233 - *mbox-rfc4155*#427 has first been dropped, and was then
 1234   reintroduced with different semantics.  Because, it can be
 1235   helpful if a messed up MBOX is read, in which case we henceforth
 1236   will warn you and point you to this:
 1238     ? define mboxfix {
 1239       \localopts yes; \wysh set mbox-rfc4155;\
 1240         \wysh File "${1}"; \eval copy * "${2}"
 1241     }
 1242     ? call mboxfix /tmp/bad.mbox /tmp/good.mbox
 1244   P.S.  Here you see how weird the current thing still is, in v15:
 1246     ? define mboxfix {
 1247       localopts yes; set mbox-rfc4155; File "${1}"; copy * -- "${2}"
 1248     }
 1250   And also in v15 we will not apply (proper) so-called MBOXO
 1251   quoting, but instead (simply MIME) re-encode mail messages.
 1253 - `call_if'#139 is new and, different to "? ignerr call", silent
 1254   and not messing with the return status.
 1256 - The new *smime-ca-flags*#507 and *ssl-ca-flags*#534 can be used
 1257   to fine-tune X509_STORE_set_flags(3) a.k.a the X509 CA
 1258   certificate verification.
 1260     ? set ssl-ca-flags=partial-chain
 1261     ? wysh set smime-ca-flags="${ssl-ca-flags}"
 1263   Also, *ssl-curves*#543 for TLSv1.3.
 1265 - Socket connections use TLS S(erver)N(ame)I(ndication) as
 1266   appropriate (RFC 7817).
 1268 - `alternates'#132 checks arguments and supports `vput'#116.
 1269   It by default no longer replaces but appends alternates, unless
 1270   *posix*#472 mode is active.  There is a new `unalternates'#133
 1271   command to remove alternates.
 1273 - A new `charsetalias'#142 command.  (Pietro Cerutti, mutt#3925)
 1275 - New commands `filetype'#180 and `unfiletype'#181: in the future
 1276   we will no longer know any builtin filetypes, in fact we already
 1277   simulate .gz etc. via the new mechanism as necessary:
 1279     ? filetype \
 1280        bz2 'bzip2 -dc' 'bzip2 -zc' \
 1281        gpg 'gpg -d' 'gpg -e' \
 1282        gz 'gzip -dc' 'gzip -c' \
 1283        xz 'xz -dc' 'xz -zc' \
 1284        zst 'zstd -dc' 'zstd -19 -zc' \
 1285        zst.pgp 'gpg -d | zstd -dc' 'zstd -19 -zc | gpg -e'
 1287 - `~<'#299 now offers a "- [HERE-delimiter]" mode for pasting etc.
 1288   (Ralph Corderoy)
 1290 - `exit'#177 and `quit'#231 take an optional exit status.
 1291   (That is not fixated yet, though.)
 1293 - We have a useful -h / --help output.  (Doug McIlroy)
 1295 - *encoding* obsoleted in favour of new *mime-encoding*#436, which
