The Horde Team is pleased to announce the second release candidate of the IMP
Webmail Client version H3 (4.2).

IMP, the Internet Messaging Program, is one of the most popular webmail
applications available.  It allows universal, web-based access to IMAP and
POP3 mail servers and provides a full range of features normally found only in
desktop email clients.

Barring any problems, this code will be released as IMP H3 (4.2).
Testing is requested and comments are encouraged.
Updated translations would also be great.

The major changes compared to the IMP version H3 (4.2-RC2) are:
    * Protect mailbox, message, and folder actions with CSRF tokens.
    * Fixed showing suggestions for the second or subsequent misspelled word.
    * Added a configuration option to force users to IMP, DIMP, or MIMP.
    * Localized default folder names.
    * %l and %d are replaced with the current short username and domain name in spam
      reporting shell calls.
    * Added a hook-based quota driver.
    * Made xinha add BR tag instead of P tag on enter keypress (Mozilla only).
    * Added fckeditor to the list of supported javascript editors.
    * Filter HTML body when replying to HTML messages with the WYIWYG editor.
    * Allow users to set the HTML editor toolbar buttons in their preferences.
    * Fixed charset of composed HTML messages.
    * Fixed message action dropdowns in IE.
    * Fixed improper enabling of HTML composition on replies.
    * Fixed popup URL generation.
    * Further bugfixes and improvements.
