The Horde Team is pleased to announce the first release candidate of the
Dynamic Internet Messaging Program (DIMP) version H3 (1.0).

DIMP (Dynamic Internet Messaging Program, or Dynamic IMP) is a PHP-based
webmail system and a component of the Horde project.  DIMP is a version of the
webmail client IMP utilizing AJAX-like technologies to allow a more dynamic
user experience than traditionally offered via IMP.

This is a preview version that should not be used on production systems.  This
version is considered feature complete but there might still be a few bugs.
You should not use this preview version over existing production data.

We encourage widespread testing and feedback via the mailing lists or our bug
tracking system.  Updated translations are very welcome, though some strings
might still change before the final release.

The major changes compared to the DIMP version H3 (1.0-ALPHA) are:
    * Further polished interface.
    * Added many features available only in IMP so far.
    * Further improved performance.
    * Added more customization options.
    * Added French, Italian, Japanese, and Lithuanian translations.
    * Further bugfixes and improvements.

DIMP requires Horde version 3.2 and IMP version H3 (4.2) to run.
