Summary of Recent Changes

   We have been very gratified by the response to Pine 4.00, both because
   it is clear that many people still care about Pine, and also because,
   notwithstanding some rough edges, folks seem to be generally pleased
   with the new functionality. Thank you for your continuing interest and
   support!
   
  Changes in Pine 4.05
  
   Version 4.05 is a maintenance release intended to address a bug in
   Pine's newsgroup subscription code which caused Pine to deny that any
   newsgroups existed, and thus prevent their being subscribed to. In
   addition, it fixes:
   
     * Crash: during aggregate undelete
     * Crash: in index of empty folder
     * PC-Pine: limited ability to launch app/o-s attachments
     * PC-Pine: session timeouts when prompting (Save, Sort, etc)
       
  Changes in Pine 4.04
  
   Version 4.04 was mainly intended to fix a bug introduced in the imapd
   program packaged with Pine 4.03 which rendered it incompatible with
   some IMAP clients. In addition, the opportunity was taken to address
   several bugs in Pine, PC-Pine and Pico.
   
   The most notable fixes included:
     * init_debug referenced when DEBUG macro not defined

     * RFC1522 encoded subject not preserved after declined post
     * Erroneous deleted and expunged counts when viewing newsgroups
     * Search criteria complaints from pre-IMAP4 servers after TAB
     * Select/Text unaware of local folder character set
     * Search/Replace/All sometimes replaced with empty string
     * collectionList Add: "server" with spaces not quoted
     * implicit _URL_ quoting and mailcap defined launching problems
     * expunge-without-confirm inconsistencies

     * PORT: BSD/OS 2/3/4 issues resolved
     * CRASH: "bad msgno 0" when current folder empty
     * CRASH: viewing particularly formatted HTML
     * CRASH: incoming folder nickname rename
     * CRASH: Goto --> ^L
     * CRASH: attaching files (mime.types formatting sensitivity)
     * CRASH: PC: starting alternate editor
     * PC-Pine: attachment save failure when path contains space
     * PC-Pine: spell check forgets personal dictionary
     * PC-Pine: view MIME app/octet-stream by extension fails
     * Various documentation additions and corrections
