MH-E and SourceForge news, part II

The tickets have been merged. The name of the combined tool is Tickets.

Note that the URL still has bugs in it. I've put in a request to rename it to tickets.

MH-E and SourceForge news

The developers have agreed to ultimately merge feature requests, patches, and bugs into a single tool and use the labels (tags) feature to distinguish these. Until the feature to move tickets between tools has been implemented (see below), please post all new tickets in "bugs."

By the way, if you have a suggestion for the merged tool, please let us know. This name will appear in the list of tools at the top of the MH-E project page (Bugs), in URLs (https://sourceforge.net/p/mh-e/bugs/), and in artifact links ([mh-e:bugs:269]).... read more

MH-E 8.3.1 released

MH-E is the Emacs interface to the MH mail system. This version of MH-E fixes typos in the documentation and is packaged with GNU Emacs 24.1. If you have Emacs 24 or MH-E 8.3, you don't really need this release since there are no user-visible changes. It exists for completeness.

MH-E 8.3 released

MH-E is the Emacs interface to the MH mail system. In 2010, the version control system (VCS) of Emacs was upgraded from CVS to Bazaar. In 2011, the MH-E team followed suit and upgraded the MH-E repository at SourceForge from CVS to Bazaar as well. The result is version 8.3 of MH-E, which includes needed changes to the build scripts.

Otherwise, this is a small release that includes mostly internal changes from the Emacs team. One of these changes manifests itself in the user interface--you can now complete folders with abbreviations, meaning that `+f/b/b TAB' can complete to `+foo/bar/baz'.... read more

MH-E 8.2.93 released

MH-E is the Emacs interface to the MH mail system. Version 8.2.93 reverts back to using `switch-to-buffer' which the Emacs developers decided was fine to call from programs after all.

This version of MH-E is packaged with GNU Emacs 24.1

MH-E 8.2.92 released

MH-E 8.2.91 released

MH-E is the Emacs interface to the MH mail system. Version 8.2.91 fixes the folder window problem that was introduced in 8.2.90. It also fixes compilation warnings in XEmacs 21.5.31, as well as an error when running XEmacs 21.5.31 in a terminal.

Another implication of the VCS change is that users who download MH-E from SourceForge and explicitly load MH-E will have to be change their `load-path' to "/path/to/mh-e/emacs/trunk/lisp/mh-e" instead. Note the addition of "trunk."... read more

MH-E 8.0.1 released

MH-E is the Emacs interface to the MH mail system. Version 8.0.1 works around a couple of bugs in GNU mailutils, spost, and Windows. MH-E now requires the use of version 1.0 of mailutils due to a bug in the folder command. Read on for more details.

** Bug Fixes in MH-E 8.0.1

*** Infinite Loop When Searching (mailutils)

The GNU mailutils folder command displays output when a folder doesn't exist. MH-E didn't expect this and responded with an infinite loop during searches. While this bug has since been fixed in mailutils, MH-E has been modified to work anyway (closes SF #1499712).... read more

MH-E 8.0 manual released

MH-E is the Emacs interface to the MH mail system. After three years in the making, I am extremely pleased to announce that the MH-E manual for MH-E 8.0 is finally finished; the manual has been completely reorganized, and has been updated with all of the changes and new features introduced since version 5. Screenshots have been updated for Emacs 22,

Starting with this release, I am now setting the version number of the manual to correspond to the version of the software that it represents. This should make it easier for users to correlate the manual with the software version, and is more in keeping with the versioning I see in the Debian GNU/Linux distribution for example.... read more

MH-E 7.95 released

MH-E is the Emacs interface to the MH mail system. Version 7.95, the second 8.0 release candidate, fixes a single bug. It would be good to check this version ASAP since the Emacs pretest is coming in days: if no showstopper problems are found in this version it will be promoted to 8.0 before the pretest.
