:book: Notes

This is a feature release, sort of :-) There are lots of bug fixes too.

The biggest change is to how NeoMutt handles format strings. Thanks János!

Format strings are now parsed when they are set, rather than every time they are used. This means we can check for errors, e.g.

set index_format = "%Q"
Option index_format: Unknown expando: %Q

Next, 8 config strings have been Localized. Localization (L10N) allows translators to provide language-specific defaults, e.g. $attribution_intro

  • English: “On %d, %n wrote:
  • Serbian: “Дана %d, %n написа:”
  • German: “Am %d, schrieb %n:”

These are the defaults: they can still be overridden.
