> rc16 has several changes intended to make Mac OS X's HFS+ happy. Thisis
> mostly because currently the only computer I have is a Powerbook.I'll get 
> new Linux machine in a couple of weeks hopefully.
> I've still about 50 unread/possibly unanswered mails. I'll try to getto
> them soon.
> Here's a list of all the important changes:
> 	* IMAP: When trying to fetch an already expunged message, Dovecot used
> 	  to just disconnect client. Now it instead replies with dummy NIL
> 	  data.
> 	* Priority numbers in plugin names have changed. If you're installing
> 	  from source, you should delete the existing plugin files before
> 	  installing the new ones, otherwise you'll get errors.
> 	* Maildir: We're using rename() to move files from tmp/ to new/ now.
> 	  See http://wiki.dovecot.org/MailboxFormat/Maildir -> "Issues with
> 	  the specification" for reasoning why this is safe. This makes saving
> 	  mails faster, and also makes Dovecot usable with Mac OS X's HFS+
> 	  (after you also set dotlock_use_excl=yes, see below).
> 	+ Added dotlock_use_excl setting. If enabled, dotlocks are created
> 	  directly using O_EXCL flag, instead of by creating a temporary file
> 	  which is hardlinked. O_EXCL is faster, but may not work with NFS.
> 	+ If Dovecot crashes with Linux or Solaris, it'll log a
> 	  "Raw backtrace". It's worse than gdb's backtrace, but better than
> 	  nothing.
> 	+ Added maildir_copy_preserve_filename=yes setting.
> 	+ Added a lazy-expunge plugin to allow users to unexpunge their mails.
> 	+ maildir quota: Added ignore setting to maildir quota, which allows
> 	  ignoring quota in Trash mailbox.
> 	+ dict quota: If dictionary doesn't yet contain the quota, calculate
> 	  it by going through all the mails in all the mailboxes.
> 	+ login_log_format_elements: Added %a=local port and %b=remote port
> 	- Doing a STATUS command for a selected mailbox (not a recommended
> 	  IMAP client behavior) caused Dovecot to sync the mailbox silently.
> 	  This could have lost eg. EXPUNGE events from clients, causing them
> 	  to use wrong sequence numbers.
> 	- deliver was treating boolean settings set to "no" as if they were
> 	  "yes" (they were supposed to be commented out for "no")
> 	- Running "dovecot" with -a or -n option while Dovecot was running
> 	  deleted all authentication sockets, which caused all the future
> 	  logins to fail.
> 	- maildir: RENAME and DELETE didn't touch control directory if it was
> 	  different from maildir or index dir.
> 	- We treated internal userdb lookup errors as "user unknown" errors.
> 	  In such situations this caused deliver to think the user didn't
> 	  exist and the mail get bounced.
> 	- pam: Setting cache_key crashed
> 	- shared maildir: dovecot-keywords file's mode wasn't taken from
> 	  dovecot-shared file.
> 	- dovecotpw wasn't working with PowerPC
