The Horde Team is pleased to announce the second release candidate of the
Internet Messaging Program (IMP) version H3 (4.3). Note that the version has
changed with this release from IMP H3 (4.2.1) to IMP H3 (4.3) to reflect the
number of feature enhancements and improvements that have been added.

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 (4.3).
Testing is requested and comments are encouraged.
Updated translations would also be great.

Major changes compared to the IMP H3 (4.2.1-RC1) version are:
     * Improved address book popup interface.
     * Improved autocomplete support.
     * Improved caching and storage optimizations.
     * Improved handling of views when the selected view is not the browser's
     * Fixed support for allowing the server name to be entered on login.
     * Fixed issue with magic quoting and uploaded attachment names.
