The Horde Team is pleased to announce the final release of the IMP Webmail
Client version H3 (4.2.2).

This is a minor security release that fixes unescaped output in several
scripts. All users are encouraged to upgrade to this release. Thanks to Gunnar
Wrobel for finding these issues in a code audit.
