The Horde Team is pleased to announce the second release candidate of the

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.

DIMP requires at least Horde version 3.2 and IMP version H3 (4.2) to run.
Although not required to upgrade either Horde or IMP, it is STRONGLY
RECOMMENDED you do as any bugfixes to core functionality will occur in
these applications.

Barring any problems, this code will be released as DIMP H3 (1.1).
Testing is requested and comments are encouraged.
Updated translations would also be great.

Major changes compared to the DIMP H3 (1.0.1-RC1) version are:
     * Cache preview messages.
     * Indicate that the WYSIWYG editor is still loading.
     * Update quota when polling messages.
