Alpine Goes Gold

After being developed for some time, finally Alpine has been officially released by the release of Alpine 1.0. They have slightly different versioning during development phase, but the results is now officially released. FYI, Alpine is a fast, easy to use email client that is suitable for both the inexperienced email user as well as for the most demanding of power users. It's build based on Pine, one of the most popular text-based email client (i also use it on my Slackware). I don't know whether it will replace Pine or not, but since it's build on Pine, i'm assuming it will be better than Pine. Alpine is released under the Apache License, Version 2.0
