NeoMutt has brought together lots of Mutt patches, many of which were useful, but had been abandoned.

Before each patch is marked stable:

  • The code is brought up-to-date with Mutt-1.7.2
  • The code is tidied up, comments added, checks done
  • Documentation is written
  • A sample muttrc is created
  • The feature is tested

To find out more, see the Development Page.
