I am pleased to announce the release of Cyrus IMAPd 2.3.12p2.  This
release should be considered production quality.

I was careless in applying the memory corruption patch in 2.3.12p1 and 
it didn't actually solve the problem.  It should be fixed now.

Noteworthy changes from 2.3.11:

* Added statuscache.db to cache IMAP STATUS data which
significantly reduces the amount of I/O necessary when neither the
mailbox nor \Seen state has changed -- courtesy of
* Added option to unexpunge to restore messages by time interval --
courtesy of David Carter
* Implemented undocumented IMAP SCAN extension, which allows
Pine/Alpine to do cross-mailbox searches -- based on work of David Carter
* Implemented incremental squat updates (see squatter.8) -- courtesy of
David Carter
* Fixed major bugs in reconstruct -k implementation -- courtesy of David

For full details, please see doc/changes.html and
doc/install-upgrade.html which are included in the distribution.
