Mutt 現有維護者的節能宣告

Hacker News 上看到「Mutt 2.2.0 (」這篇,Mutt 的維護者 (應該是 Kevin McCarthy) 將只會負責 fix 類的事情了:

This obviously isn't a feature, but I wanted to mention that I will be moving away from Mutt maintainership after this release. There isn't a transition plan, so I'll keep maintaining the 2.2.x series with bug fixes and security issues.

It's been my pleasure to keep the releases coming since version 1.5.24. Unfortunately the past year, my time and energy available has been decreasing. So my plan is to focus the time I do have on keeping Mutt stable, secure, and bug free; until someone else has the desire to head up (and support) new-feature releases. Thank you everyone!

有人在討論串裡提到了 NeoMutt,也許之後會找機會看看...

目前還是有一套 email system 是跑在 Postfix + Procmail + Bogofilter + Mutt 上面,短期內應該不會換...

Mutt 跳版推出 2.0

看到「Mutt 2.0 released」這篇,Mutt 推出 2.0 版,官方的 release notes 則是在這:「Mutt 2.0 Release Notes」。

這次版本跳到 2.0 主要是因為有 incompatible changes,實質上的變更其實沒有太多:

This release was bumped to 2.0, not because of the magnitude of features (which is actually smaller than past releases), but because of a few changes that are backward incompatible.

我自己還是保留一個信箱用 Mutt 在看信,主要是有一個信箱是完全控制在自己手上,所以自己架設 mail server 並且在上面看信...

上面主要是透過 procmail 拿來收各種信件 (尤其是 mailing list),對於純文字的閱讀還是頗方便...

Mutt 最近更新的好快啊 XDDD (相較於富奸的速度):「mutt 1.7.0 released」。看一下官網上這一波的更新記錄:

2016 開始更新的速度快好多... XD

Mutt 1.6 出版,距離上個穩定版本八年多了...

Hacker News Daily 上看到在 terminal 下的 email client,Mutt,推出 1.6 版了...

上次出版是 June 9, 2007,八年多前因為 CVE-2007-2683CVE-2007-1558 而更新的。

雖然 DebianUbuntu 的 apt repository 都是跟 1.5.x 版,但還是很值得紀念一下 XDDD

在 Mutt 上看 html 信件...

花了一些時間設定 mutt,本來在 terminal 上面沒打算看 html 信件,不過後來還是決定設起來,至少可以看到 html 的文字部分再決定要不要轉到 gmail 上面看...

~/.muttrc 裡面加上:

auto_view text/html

另外在 ~/.mailcap 裡面指定用 w3m

text/html;/usr/local/bin/w3m -I %{charset} -T text/html -dump %s; copiousoutput

在 mutt 裡刪除重複的信件

因為 mailing list 之類的東西我還是習慣在 mutt 裡讀 (操作起來比較快),而有時候會把 -announce 與 -users 都丟到同一個檔案裡,所以偶而會在一個檔案裡面有同時寄到多個 mailing list 而重複的信件...

之前是看到的時候就手動砍掉,不過用 Google 找了一下,發現早就有方法可以做了:「Tip: Remove Duplicate Emails with Mutt」。

變化一下就是用 D 然後輸入 ~=,當離開這個信件檔時就會刪除這些重複的信件。等下再來研究要怎麼樣在切換信件檔時自動執行這個命令...
