STABILITY AND LIFE EXPECTANCY

As you can see, Pine 3.92 contains a *lot* of new stuff. Accordingly, consider this to be BETA code.

The plan is to release one or possibly two follow-on versions within 3-6 months (sooner if needed to correct a serious bug). First, there will be a Pine 4.00, which will have mostly the same functionality as 3.92, but will use the new IMAP4-capable c-client libraries in preparation for utilizing certain IMAP4 extensions later on. In addition, if circumstances warrant, there may be a "3.93" bug fix release in the same time frame.
