     4The BarnOwl Developers are pleased to announce the release of BarnOwl
     5version 1.6.
     7It has been installed in the Athena locker, and you can download it
     8from the website [1] or get the source from Github [2]. BarnOwl 1.6
     9contains various bug fixes and new features, including:
     11* BarnOwl's zcrypt implementation now supports AES encryption using
     12  GPG.
     14  Please see for documentation
     15  about how to use this feature.
     17* The 'narrow-related' variable has been added, which controls whether
     18  M-n and related commands include zephyr unclasses and instances when
     19  narrowing.
     21  Please note that by default, this feature changes the name of
     22  auto-generated filters; If 'narrow-related' is set, BarnOwl will
     23  generate filters of the form 'related-class-barnowl' to include '-c
     24  unbarnowl' and so on.
     26* When you are typing a command line, M-h will pop up help for the
     27  command being entered, while leaving your command line for you to
     28  return to once you're done reading help.
     30* The 'typewindelta' variable now only takes effect once you open an
     31  actual multiline text-entry area, not just when you open the command
     32  line.
     34* Many commands like :source that accept paths now do tab-completion.
     35  to restore suspending on ^Z.
     37The full Changelog is available online [3].
     39Thank you for using BarnOwl, and we hope you enjoy the new release. As
     40usual, any bug reports, questions, or feature requests can be directed
     41to the developers at <>.
