Project Release Information
This release introduces functionality to cope with persistent errors and connection failures when running in daemon mode. It also fixes a bug related to the failure handling during login and logout.
The release extends the recovery functionality to include the case in which an unexpected BYE response is received from the server. It adds an option to control if and when the recovery mechanism should be used.
This release introduces support for recovery of a session when a network failure is encountered, and has other robustness improvements. It also adds Lua 5.2 compatibility, while the codebase is still compilable with version 5.1. Among the bugs fixed is appending of messages to mailboxes that did not yet exist, since it failed to create the mailbox and retry the append operation. A problem where SSL failures could produce misleading error printouts was corrected. Support for the old deprecated 1.x configuration format has been removed.
This release fixes a problem where some ASCII characters in mailbox names were incorrectly converted to UTF-7.
This release fixes a problem that caused the become_daemon() function to fail.
