After much too long, I'm happy to announce the release of mutt 1.5.21,
the "Godfather III" release: "They keep pulling ME back in". This
release contains major improvements by Michael Elkins. It's great to
see him back!
The most notable user-visible change (aside from bug fixes) is the new
$mail_check_recent flag to partially address
http://dev.mutt.org/trac/wiki/NewMailHandling (the major blocker for
1.6). It also contains a larger than usual number of bug fixes, thanks
to the long time between releases.
Thanks to all the developers and users who've contributed
improvements. Happy mutting!
