I haven't committed my most recent changes because their a bit unstable at the moment. I also haven't decided how I want to do transactions properly, I'm thinking I'm going to be really really naughty and have a "locktable" for mailboxed because I don't really feel like the POP style transactions at least map directly to the kinds of transactions dbs/hbiernate/etc use.
I've been out of town mostly for the last two months so things did slow around the holidays but that changes now. I've also been doing some experimentation for GUI stuff and configuration. Anyhow we should be getting back on track for M4. I'll be committing the latest changes in the next few days.
I replied more substantively to your personal mail regarding how you can perrsonally participate and we certainly welcome you and others to do so! Welcome!
wow it is amazing how many speling gramer nd typing meestakes, i managed to push into that one email.
Do you have any rough idea when you will have finished your refactoring and mods? I'm principly interested in any changes you have made re. imap, as we are quite desperate to get hold of an imap server.
Thanks in advance
Well M4 will not be a usable IMAP. The refactoring of the mailbox will be in support of IMAP but IMAP will just be early stuff. I expected to be done with the mailbox refactoring but have hit a few snags. So "any day now". No substantial work remains to be done, its all hunting bugs and stuff. So I hope today...but could be tomorrow :-). After that I'll go over the bug list, do cleanup and put out M4-pre. M5 will be the first REAL IMAP. I expect a "prod" IMAP release in March. However, we won't call it 1.0 until we have the webmail and admin piece. That is now slated for June (JBossWorld).
Thanks for the feedback.
Just one question - will the "prod" IMAP release contain a tls connection?
definitely. We already have TLS for POP and SMTP (as well as SSL). There isn't IIRC any difference so this part of the work is already done.
