12All about this Release!!!
13=========================
815d9ba0 14
76911253 15This is the first Release Candidate (RC) for the 1.4.x stable series.
16Please note that this release is not yet labeled STABLE officially.
17
18However, we've been running this on a number of systems and a variety
19of configs and we think it's worthy of the "stable"-title. Before we
20can call it stable we want to test it on as many systems as possible
21to iron out the last issues.

23So download it! Install it, and try to break it! We are hungry for any
76911253 24bug report you send.

3eb34ffd 27Major updates
28==============
29
76911253 30The 1.4.0 series (as a result of 1.3 devel series) brings:
3eb34ffd 31
76911253 32* A complete rewrite of the way we send mail (Deliver-class),
33 and of the way we parse mail (MIME-bodystructure parsing).
34 This makes SquirrelMail more reliable and more efficient
35 at the same time!
36* Support for IMAP UID which makes SquirrelMail more reliable.
37* Optimizations to code and the number of IMAP calls.
38* Support for a wider range of authentication mechanisms.
39* Lots of bugfixes and a couple of UI-tweaks.

43A note on plugins
44=================
45
534a34a2 46There have been major plugin architecture improvements. Lots of plugins
a23d0264 47have not yet been adapted to this. Plugins which are distributed with
534a34a2 48this release (eg. in the same .tar.gz file) should work. Plugins not
a23d0264 49distributed with this plugin most probably WILL NOT WORK.
50
51So if you have ANY problem at all, first try turning off all plugins.
52
76911253 53
a23d0264 54A note on your configuration
55============================
a67a0f59 56
a23d0264 57For a whole bunch of reasons, it is MANDATORY that you run conf.pl
58(and then save your configuration) from the config/ directory before
59using this release.
a67a0f59 60
a23d0264 61If you have problems with UID support, please do these 2 things:
62
534a34a2 631) For our comfort and the prosperity of SquirrelMail, send a bug
64 report with this information:
a23d0264 65 * IMAP server type + version
66 * Whether you use server-side sorting
67 * Whether you use thread sorting
68 * The value of "sort" (as in conf.pl)
534a34a2 69 Bugs can be submitted at: http://www.squirrelmail.org/bugs
70
a23d0264 712) For your own pleasure and comfort:
534a34a2 72 Turn off UID support in conf.pl, so you can continue to use 1.4.0
73 while the developers look at your report.

a23d0264 77==========================================
78
76911253 79This RC is meant to catch the last bugs. So we need you to submit
80any bug you come across! Also, please mention that the bug is in
81this 1.4.0 RC1 release.

84
534a34a2 85Thanks for your cooperation with this. That helps us to make
86sure nothing slips through the cracks. Also, it would help if
a67a0f59 87people would check existing tracker items for a bug before reporting
88it again. This would help to eliminate duplicate reports, and
89increase the time we can spend CODING by DECREASING the time we
90spend sorting through bug reports. And remember, check not only OPEN
91bug reports, but also closed ones as a bug that you report MAY have
92been fixed in CVS already.
