Not sure when this was the case, but it's not the case any longer.  UW is 
not developing Pine in any form, ALPine or any other version.  They have 
decided to cease development of their own client.

I've also heard (without confirmation) that this decision and the 
resultant purchasing of commercial licenses for a replacement nearly sent 
them broke.

It is the consensus of the alpine-info mailing list that the project is the only place that's showing any 
signs of life.
