As promised yesterday :)

BTW. I just found libsqlora8 library yesterday and I've been playing
with Oracle mail storage support. Shouldn't take too long to get it

And the NEWS file once more:

v0.99.9 2003-04-28  Timo Sirainen <tss at iki.fi>

	* WARNING: mbox rewriting works now faster, but it's less likely to
	  notice external message flag changes (it wasn't perfect before
	  either). This also means that if you're not using index files,
	  Dovecot may not notice changes made by another Dovecot process.
	  This will be fixed later.

	+ Message UIDs are now permanently stored outside index files.
	  Deleting indexes is now possible without any kind of data loss and
	  in-memory indexes are now usable.
	+ mbox rewriting leaves extra space into X-Keywords header. It's
	  shrinked or grown when updating message flag headers to avoid
	  rewriting the rest of the file.
	+ imap-login and pop3-login can now be started from inetd. Privilege
	  separation is still used, so it executes dovecot and dovecot-auth
	  processes which are left on the background.
	+ PostgreSQL authentication support, patch by Alex Howansky
	- Large multiline headers (over 8kB) broke Dovecot before. Now they're
	  parsed one line at a time and we try to avoid reading them fully into
	- SEARCH OR was broken
	- Partial BODY[] fetches were broken
	- Timezones were still set wrong when parsing dates
	- Using non-synchronized literals (LITERAL+) broke APPEND
	- Renaming maildir subfolders inserted extra "." in the middle.
	- Subfolders were a bit broken with maildir
	- Invalid PLAIN auth request crashed auth process.
