100 <para>This version of <application>Mutt</application> is a development
101 release. The BLFS staff has determined that it provides a stable
102 program and fixes two issues in the current stable version of

104 certain conditions and a compilation problem when building with
105 <application>GCC-&gcc-version;</application>. To find the current
106 stable release, please refer to the
107 <ulink url="http://www.mutt.org/">Mutt home page</ulink>.</para>
