I am pleased to announce the release of GNU mailutils version 3.1.

GNU mailutils is a protocol-independent framework for email processing.
It provides a set of libraries for doing almost any mail-related task on
any existing mailbox format, using a consistent format-independent API.

Several tools are built atop of these libraries and included in the package.
Among them are pop3 and imap4 servers, the traditional mailx mail reader,
the sieve mail filtering utility and a complete set of MH utilities that
can be used with GNU Emacs MH-E mode.

Visit for more information.

This release features a new implementation of the Sieve mail filtering
language.  See below for a complete list of changes.

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify mailutils-3.1.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 3602B07F55D0C732

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.14
  Bison 2.7
  Makeinfo 5.2

Noteworthy changes in this release:

* Sieve

The Sieve library essentially rewritten.  The following new extensions
are implemented:

 encoded-character  -  RFC 5228,
 variables          -  RFC 5229
 environment        -  RFC 5183

The utilities define the Sieve environment "location", and
"phase" as per the following table:

  Utility |  "location" | "phase"
  maidag  |  "MDA"      | "during"
  inc     |  "MUA"      | "post"
  sieve   |  "MS"       | "post"

The "sieve" utility provides a new option: --environment, for
manipulating the environment.
* Bugfixes
** Fix program name duplicate in the output of "mailutils help COMMAND"
** Fix several bugs in mhn
** Fix expansion of #, &, %, etc. in mail "copy" and "file" commands.
** Fix improper permissions after delivery to MH and Maildir mailboxes.
** Fix stream flushing code
** Fix the implementation of -nowhatnowproc option in mh
