After five years a new stable nmh release will be available. It has
a lot of improvements in both functionality and documentation, and it is
even more clean than the old stable release. Some binaries has been
moved from ~/lib (~/libexec in NetBSD) to ~/bin as these files were
useful for end-users, some files has been removed (e.g., a header file,
tmac.h, was installed in ~/etc in nmh-1.0.4 and has been removed now),
and documentation has been greatly improved.
I would suggest upgrading nmh in pkgsrc from the current release (1.0.4)
to nmh-1.2.1 once it is available[*].
[*] we have discovered a bug that breaks building nmh-1.2 in both
NetBSD and OpenBSD just after being released. A fix has been
developed in the last days and nmh-1.2.1 will be released very soon.
I think that this upgrade will be good for all nmh users, but I believe
that more knowledgable people can provide better feedback here and
help choosing the right decision about the upgrade.
I can post a complete changelog if required. Source is available at
http://download.savannah.nongnu.org/releases/nmh/ (sorry, no FTP
available this time), but it is nmh-1.2 yet, nmh-1.2.1 will be
available for download very soon. Perhaps in a week or so.
