The Horde Team is pleased to announce the final release of the Vacation
Auto-Responding Manager version H3 (3.0.1).

Vacation is a Horde module for managing user e-mail "vacation notices" or
"auto-responders." It works via a local vacation program and the .forward
style forwarding mechanism supported by several popular mailers.

Right now, Vacation provides fairly complete support for managing .forward
style vacation notices on Sendmail or Courier mail based systems via an FTP
transport. It also has some support for LDAP, Qmail, and Exim SQL based

The major changes compared to the Vacation H3 (3.0) version are:
    * Added support for Berkeley DB 4 vacation databases.
    * Allowed users to set their From: address.
    * Improved configuration for LDAP searches.
    * Added Slovenian translation.
    * Updated German and Traditional Chinese translations.
