12All about this Release!!!
815d9ba0 14
56807b09 15This is the second and hopefully last Release Candidate (RC) for the
161.4.x stable series. Please note that this release is not yet labeled
17STABLE officially.
76911253 18
19However, we've been running this on a number of systems and a variety
20of configs and we think it's worthy of the "stable"-title. Before we
21can call it stable we want to test it on as many systems as possible
22to iron out the last issues.

56807b09 24In response to RC1, quite some issues were reported AND fixed! We now
25hope that SquirrelMail is really ready to be called STABLE. We need you
26to verify that this is true!
a23d0264 28So download it! Install it, and try to break it! We are hungry for any
56807b09 29bug report you send. Even the smallest issue deserves to be fixed.

3eb34ffd 32Major updates
76911253 35The 1.4.0 series (as a result of 1.3 devel series) brings:
3eb34ffd 36
76911253 37* A complete rewrite of the way we send mail (Deliver-class),
38 and of the way we parse mail (MIME-bodystructure parsing).
39 This makes SquirrelMail more reliable and more efficient
40 at the same time!
41* Support for IMAP UID which makes SquirrelMail more reliable.
42* Optimizations to code and the number of IMAP calls.
43* Support for a wider range of authentication mechanisms.
44* Lots of bugfixes and a couple of UI-tweaks.

a23d0264 47A note on plugins
534a34a2 50There have been major plugin architecture improvements. Lots of plugins
a23d0264 51have not yet been adapted to this. Plugins which are distributed with
534a34a2 52this release (eg. in the same .tar.gz file) should work. Plugins not
a23d0264 53distributed with this plugin most probably WILL NOT WORK.
55So if you have ANY problem at all, first try turning off all plugins.

a23d0264 58A note on your configuration
a67a0f59 60
a23d0264 61For a whole bunch of reasons, it is MANDATORY that you run
62(and then save your configuration) from the config/ directory before
63using this release.
a67a0f59 64
a23d0264 65If you have problems with UID support, please do these 2 things:
534a34a2 671) For our comfort and the prosperity of SquirrelMail, send a bug
68 report with this information:
a23d0264 69 * IMAP server type + version
70 * Whether you use server-side sorting
71 * Whether you use thread sorting
72 * The value of "sort" (as in
534a34a2 73 Bugs can be submitted at:
a23d0264 752) For your own pleasure and comfort:
534a34a2 76 Turn off UID support in, so you can continue to use 1.4.0
77 while the developers look at your report.

76911253 80Reporting my favorite SquirrelMail 1.4 bug
a23d0264 81==========================================
76911253 83This RC is meant to catch the last bugs. So we need you to submit
84any bug you come across! Also, please mention that the bug is in
56807b09 85this 1.4.0 RC2 release.
a67a0f59 86
534a34a2 89Thanks for your cooperation with this. That helps us to make
90sure nothing slips through the cracks. Also, it would help if
a67a0f59 91people would check existing tracker items for a bug before reporting
92it again. This would help to eliminate duplicate reports, and
93increase the time we can spend CODING by DECREASING the time we
94spend sorting through bug reports. And remember, check not only OPEN
95bug reports, but also closed ones as a bug that you report MAY have
96been fixed in CVS already.

a23d0264 99things to share with the developers, join the development mailinglist:
