2.2.13 has many bugs that are definitely bad. I was going to make v2.2.14 only a few weeks afterwards, but then I just got more and more busy and it took forever to do the release. If you want to go with it, please use the dovecot-ee release instead with many many important patches. I can put the .tar.gz somewhere if needed.

This has caused a small upgrade problem for the antispam plugin which is in a separate package (dovecot-antispam.) Was that addressed in 2.2.15?

I only remember an ABI problem with antispam. Recompiling fixed that AFAIK. (And no Dovecot version guarantees ABI compatibility.) Is there some API problem also?
