Happy New Year NeoMutt Users!

## Notes

- *Mutt-1.7.2 Released*
  - NeoMutt had already adopted most of its fixes in our previous release.

  - Upstream has adopted our XDG Config changes.  *Note*: the locations
    of the new config files have changed to keep in step with Mutt.

  - Upstream has adopted our changes to `$to_chars` and `$status_chars`,
    which allow them to display Unicode characters.
  - New setenv/unsetenv commands to control the environment passed to
    child programs.
  - Add option `$uncollapse_new` to control whether threads uncollapse
    when new mail arrives.

- *New option*: `$from_chars` to customise the "From" indicator in the index.

- *Build Changes*
  - The `--enable-hcache` configure option is no longer needed, it's assumed
    when you use one of the backend options, e.g. `--with-tokyocabinet`
  - New configure option `--enable-everything` to save developers' time.
