Pine mailer hits version 4.0 milestone

Rogers Cadenhead writes "On Wednesday, the University of Washington released Pine 4.0 for Unix, the first integer release of the e-mail and news software since 3.0 appeared in 1992. The new version adds the ability to launch a Web browser from an e-mailed URL, some HTML rendering capabilities, improved MIME, and the strangely poetic feature "quell-partial-fetching." Upgrade now and tell your boss it's an Y2K fix that may quell food riots, electrical disasters, and perhaps even partial fetching. Pine's authors say that versions 3.96 and prior have a Y2K bug in their date-sorting routines that will cause sorting problems with the letters you receive come the middle of the 21st century. "
