      a file or an external program) ;
    - it's now possible to move and copy messages between
      mailboxes (copy was added) ;

      deleted messages) when the user wants to or when
      closing a mailbox ;

      HTML codes) ;
    - now able to select which font is used for the headers
      and for the content of the message ;

    This release should work well with GNUstep and
    with Apple Mac OS X. There's still some minor issues on OS X
    since it hasn't been as tested as the GNUstep version (my
    primary development/target platform being GNUstep). I would
    like to seek for contributions for the OS X port in order to
    improve the overall quality of on this platform.

    For GNUstep, have been tested with
    GNUstep GUI/XGPS 0.7.5 and also the CVS version of GNUstep.

    A MacOS X binary should be available in a couple of hours
    from the website.

    I would like to thank the following people who greatly
    helped me getting this release done by sending me
    patches, suggestions and bug reports:

    Luis Garcia Alanis, Dale Amon, Martin Brecher,
    Erik Dalen, Alexey I. Froloff, Francis Lachapelle,
    Alexander Malmberg, Stephane Peron, Quique, Vincent Ricard,
    Nicolas Roard, Bert Schellekens, Abhijit Menon-Sen
    and particularly Pierre-Yves Rivaille.

    Again, feature requests, patches, bug reports are
    all welcome!

    Thanks a lot,

    Live as if you were to die tomorrow.
    Learn as if you were to live forever.
