Changes from Alpine 0.81 to 0.82

New in Alpine 0.82

   Version 0.82 addresses bugs found in previous releases and has a few additions
   as well.

   Additions include:

     *  PC-Alpine "View in New Window" command will now use a new window
        instead of reusing the existing window if the Ctrl key is held down
        while clicking (Sartain)
     *  Links in PC-Alpine viewing windows and IMAP telemetry window are
        selectable (Sartain)
     *  Attempted to improve password preserving behavior for Windows and
        MacOS
     *  Added transparent color for UNIX Alpine, explained a bit in Color
        Style help
     *  Added a some 24-hour clock SMARTDATETIME configuration options for
        dates in the Index Format option.
     *  Make it possible to enter long filenames at the Ctrl-J attachment
        prompts and the insert file prompt in the composer
     *  Allow more columns on screen for tiny fonts
     *  Added TogglePreferPlain toggle in message view screen (see Prefer
        Plain Text)
     *  (Experimental) There is a hotkey (Ctrl-Shift-E) in PC-Alpine text
        windows (IMAP telemetry, message view windows) to make the window
        ReadWrite. This might, for example, be useful as a clipboard window
        while composing in the main window.
