   79     not just on new messages.
   80   - A new "reenter" option controls whether IDLE mode should be re-entered,
   81     after the recovery of the session, which makes it possible to continue with

   83   - The documentation now mentions that the contain_*() methods do
   84     case-insensitive searching (an IMAP limitation).

   87   - Bug fix; the value returned by the copy method was incorrect in some cases.
   88 
   89 IMAPFilter 2.5.6 - 27 Oct 2013
   90   - Possible to build again with OpenSSL older than version 1.0.1 (was a
   91     requirement for the previous release due to new protocols TLS 1.1/1.2).

   93   - New makefile dist target, which can be used to create distribution archives.
   94 
   95 IMAPFilter 2.5.5 - 8 Jun 2013
   96   - Work-around for some servers that send an unexpected APPEND response.
   97   - The serial number of the certificates is taken into account, because some
   98     servers send different certificates with the same subject and issuer.
   99   - Details of the stored certificates are written to the certificates file, in
  100     order to make it easier to distinguish each of them.

  186     or different accounts and processing of the results in bulk.
  187   - Support for meta-searching that allows searching on the previous searching
  188     results.

  190     changes and the documentation was updated.
  191   - Global options for the message cache and the certificates were added.

  193     instead an error is printed.
  194   * A different format is used for the returned structures of the searching
  195     methods, due to the introduction of multiple mailbox searching and
  196     meta-searching, and thus any configuration files that rely on them should
  197     be updated.  Consequently, the processing and fetching methods have been
  198     also enhanced and the relevant documentation updated, and while these
  199     changes are backwards compatible, an update of the configuration file is
  200     still recommended.

  216     the searching methods.
  217   - Bug fix; fetching of non-existent messages.
  218   - Bug fix; no trailing end-of-line characters in the results of

  301   - Bug fix; a mix up of connections could happen in certain circumstances,
  302     when a hostname and/or username was a prefix of another hostname and/or
  303     username respectively, or when the same hostname and username was used to
  304     connect to a different port.
  305   - Bug fix; the list()/lsub() functions parsed mailboxes/folders whose names
  306     contained spaces incorrectly.
  307   - The list() function now does not return the folder itself, when listing
  308     mailboxes inside a specific folder.

  333     loading a configuration file.
  334   - New program option to enter interactive mode after executing the
  335     configuration file or the command line.
  336   - Servers that reply with multiple SEARCH responses are taken into

  349     sequence numbers, when accessing messages in a mailbox.
  350   - Sequence set ranges are generated and sent to the mail server instead of
  351     enumerations, when this is possible.
