The Horde Team is pleased to announce the first release candidate of the
Internet Messaging Program (IMP) version H3 (4.2.1).

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 (4.2.1).
Testing is requested and comments are encouraged.
Updated translations would also be great.

Major changes compared to the IMP H3 (4.2) version are:
   * Much improved folder listing library that reduces the time needed  
to create
     the tree and should better handle servers with unconventional namespaces.
   * Added ability to search by size and improved search page UI.
   * Added mailto: handler for Firefox 3+.
   * Improved autocomplete address performance and reliablity.
   * Added CSRF tokens to the Compose screen.
   * If using imagemagick, allow creation of PDF thumbnails.
   * Fixed spellcheck in HTML mode when using Xinha on IE and when using
     fckeditor on Safari 3.
   * Fixed logging of forwarded messages.
   * Multiple quota driver bugfixes and improvements.
   * Handle ';' to delimit addresses when composing.
   * Added Basque translation.
   * A large amount of bugfixes and performance/stability improvements.
