|| ||Notmuch release 0.1 now available |

|| ||Article, Thread
In trying to get notmuch to grow up a little bit, I've just added a
version number (0.1 initially) and have started doing releases. My idea
for now is to have 2-part versions for releases, and 3-part versions to
indicate intermediate states within git.
For example, I just released notmuch 0.1, current git clone will
create notmuch 0.1.1, and the next anticipated release will be 0.2.
The first release announcement is below, with very thin release notes. I
hope to have better release announcements in the future. For this, I'll
need the help of all contributors. Here's my request:
When you submit a patch adding a new feature to notmuch, please
include with it an edit to the NEWS file adding a sentence or
paragraph to the top of that file.
Thanks, and have fun out there.

What's new in notmuch 0.1
This is the first release of the notmuch mail system.
It includes the libnotmuch library, the notmuch command-line
interface, and an emacs-based interface to notmuch.
Note: Notmuch will work best with Xapian 1.0.18 (or later) or Xapian
1.1.4 (or later). Previous versions of Xapian (whether 1.0 or 1.1) had
a performance bug that made notmuch very slow when modifying
tags. This would cause distracting pauses when reading mail while
notmuch would wait for Xapian when removing the "inbox" and "unread"
tags from messages in a thread.
What is notmuch
Notmuch is a system for indexing, searching, reading, and tagging
large collections of email messages in maildir or mh format. It uses
the Xapian library to provide fast, full-text search with a convenient
