I've updated the tin package to release 1.6.2-1.

This is the latest stable tin release 1.6.2.
It's a bug fix release which solves the following bugs:

  thinko in read_server_config()
  overview data wasn't unfolded before storing it
  mem-leak in free_and_init_header()
  "domainname missing" warning was displayed too short
  allowed spaces in username/password portion of URLs
  'V' didn't work with one multimedia part only
  possible buffer overrun in escape_shell_meta()
  mailcap command expansion didn't take shell meta characters into account
  mailcap nametemplate expansion took place twice
  MIME Content-Type parameters parsed incorrectly
  didn't refresh screen after viewing files and URLs
  mem-leak in _lookup_mimetype
  mem-leak in new_uu()
  source and destination overlap in strncpy
  doesn't try to reconnect after a 205 response
  refine txt_help_thread_mark_article_read
  attributes were ignored when mailing
