Changes since pre-release 0.0.2:

The pre-release 0.0.2 can be found here:

Philip Van Hoof:        
  * Avoiding the second capability request, eliminating roundtrips when
    connecting. If LOGIN returns a capability response, we assume this
    one is complete enough to continue. The AUTH= ones are not relevant
    anymore as we've authenticated anyway (most IMAP servers don't
    include the AUTH= capabilities in the LOGIN's response).
  * Restarting IDLE when needed
  * Restoring the selected folder if possible after a reconnect
  * Reverted camel-operation.c to rev 2823 for my good friend Sergio
  * Locking issue, fix is experimental
  * A fix for normal CONDSTORE
  * Operation notifactions no longer wait for 4 seconds to group them
    together. This is experimental. Uncomment line 620 of
    camel-operation.c to undo this.
  * Added a -DMERGEFOLDERTEST that will perform a test for
  * Implemented a small test that makes it possible to transfer messages
    from one folder to another using the demoui
  * Removed a few invalid assertions
  * Unread count upon IDLE events
  * Implemented QRESYNC for IMAP4 servers that already implement it:
  * Unread count problems with TnyMergeFolder
  * Removed use of strcasestr, replaced with own implementation
  * non-case sensitivity of IMAP responses
  * Various memory problem fixes
  * Made sure that the standard Maildir format also works (with the ':'
    as flag separator character). The standard for Tinymail, though, is
    to use the '!' character (fallback when reading is ':').
  * Made the sizes of Maildir E-mails more accurate (using stat())
  * Fixed regression on the regression fix of a few days ago :)
  * Renamed Maildir filenames to have '!' in stead of '_' or ':' in
    their filenames
  * iconv error situation handler
  * Bugfix when the summary file was not yet created for a Maildir
  * Merged camel-mime-utils.c with uptream Camel
  * Backported a patch from Niels Christens on Camel to Camel-Lite. The
   patch fixed the behaviour when the server expects a TLS HELLO, while
   SSL version 2 is used.
  * Merged camel-lite with upstream Camel revision 8099
  * Merged bugfix from Matthew Barnes. More information here:
  * Changed the address of FSF in the copyright notes
  * Further merging upstream Camel with camel-lite
  * -Wall warnings
  * -pedantic warnings
  * TnyCamelSendQueue should not error if the TnyDevice went offline
  * Bugfixes in TnyGtkFolderStoreTreeModel
  * Unsigned integers can't be < 0
  * Fixed (avoided) a memory leak in saving CamelObject's states
  * Sending messages, some fixes for the CC and BCC fields
  * Date-Received on maildir was foobar
  * Local-size updates after sync, sync_async and add_msg and
  * Fixed a possible too-early cleanup of the account
  * Fixed a possible crash when renaming folders

Vivek Sekar:
* Added microb-engine-dev and changed the debug architecture to 'any'
  in debian/control.maemo1.

Jose Dapena Paz:
* Some fixes to mozembed build.
* Disable mozembed packages build in maemo.
* m4/moz.m4: add support for gtkmozembed library using gtkembedmoz.pc.
  Also export mozilla_home.
* debian/rules.maemo: compile with mozembed support.
* debian/control.maemo1: compile with mozembed support.
* tests/c-demo/tny-main.c: remove mozilla calls in main.
* configure.ac: some fixes for html module detection. Use mozilla home.
  Now we only use detection of xpcom for being sure we've got an engine
* Removed libtinymailui-mozembed/mozilla-preferences.{cpp,h}, as we now
  use gtk moz embed api to set preferences.
* libtinymalui-mozembed/Makefile.am: removed mozilla preferences from
* libtinymailui-mozembed/tny-moz-embed-html-mime-part-view.c:
  Now we use gtk moz embed to set preferences. We also set properly the
  component path (mozilla home from used engine), and the profile path
  (using the progname). We set a default chrome without scrollbars.
* libtinymail/tny-merge-folder.c: (tny_merge_folder_get_id): fixed id
  generation. We were setting this with a fixed value always due to an
  error in initialisation. Now we calculate an id with the merged
  folder id's and their account id's.
* tny_merge_folder_get_url_string: created implementation. Now it gets
  the merge folder id as part of the url string
* libtinymail-camel/tny-camel-common.c,
  _foreach_email_add_to_inet_addr: now we don't use strtok_r() to
  split the string to addresses, as we weren't taking into account the
  quotes. I implemented a new _split_recipients() method that takes
  quotes into account.
* _string_to_camel_inet_addr: now we remove the quotes in the name part
   of an address, as they are added by camel part automatically.

Dirk-Jan C. BInnema:
 * depend on / use NSS for debian builds for maemo
 * fix some tny mem leaks

Sergio Villar Sen�
 * libtinymail-camel/tny-camel-folder.c: fixed an issue when
   transferring folders, the CamelFolderInfo of the parent of the
   folder that is moved is now NULLized.

Mark Doffman:
* bindings/python/*defs: Updated to reflect changes in
  tny_gtk_header_list_model_set_folder and additions to the tinymail
* bindings/python/Makefile.am: Added a generated file to the CLEANFILES
  to fix release problems.
* /bindings/python/*: Remove the platform generation from the
  automatically generated bindings.
* /bindings/python/README: Update for changes to the way the python
  bindings are generated.
* /tests/python-demo/*: Add implementations of a tny-list
  iterator, platform factory, and account store. Update the
  svn ignore to ignore the compiled python files.
* /tests/python-demo/tinymail-python-test.py: Modify to use the python
  implementation of the platform factory.
