The Horde Team is pleased to announce the third 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.

Barring any problems, this code will be released as DIMP H3 (1.0).
Testing is requested and comments are encouraged.
Updated translations would also be great.

The major changes compared to the DIMP version H3 (1.0-RC2) are:
    * Compatiblity with IMP H3 (4.2-RC3+).
    * Use IMP's configuration for javascript editors and CSS/JS caching.
    * Made fckeditor add BR tag instead of P tag on enter keypress.
    * Made xinha add BR tag instead of P tag on enter keypress (Mozilla only).
    * Added Special Characters to compose screen, if configured.
    * Allow users to set the HTML editor toolbar buttons in their preferences.
    * Added Spanish translation.
    * Added "Reply to List" option.
    * Added Russian translation.
    * Added Hungarian translation.
    * Further bugfixes and improvements.
