  The current official version of MH is 6.8.3, although a beta of
  6.8.4 is available.

  This version includes MIME, a multi-media MH package that implements
  the new IETF work on Multi-media 822 (MIME). This allows you to
  include things like audio, graphics, and the like, in your mail
  messages. --Marshall Rose <mrose at dbc.mtview.ca.us>

  MH now works with Kerberos as well.

  In addition, a new program called mhparam extracts arguments from
  .mh_profile which is useful in shell scripts.

  Please see the file CHANGES in the distribution for more details.

  Due to the languishing state of MH, Richard Coleman <coleman at
  math.gatech.edu> created another version of MH called nmh based upon
  MH 6.8.3. He added GNU autoconf to ease installation considerably
  and fixed several bugs and inconsistencies. Doug Morris <doug at
  mhost.com. hosted the web site, mailing lists, web pages, and CVS
  repository for a long time. Ken Hornstein <kenh at pobox.com> picked
  up the torch in 2002 and moved development to Savannah where Jon
  Steinhart <nmh at fourwinds.com> joined him as a project maintainer.
  See http://www.nongnu.org/nmh/. The stable version of nmh is 1.2.
  The file DIFFERENCES in the nmh distribution contains an
  ever-growing list of differences between nmh and MH.

  GNU mailutils (version 1.2) is a collection of mail-related
  utilities. At the core of mailutils is libmailbox, a library which
  provides access to various forms of mailbox files (including remote
  mailboxes via popular protocols and MH). See
  http://www.gnu.org/software/mailutils/.
