Hi there,

I'm forwarding this message posted to the announcement mailing list 
originally, to let you know any upgrades should target 2.4.16 as opposed to 

We are pleased to announce the release of Cyrus IMAPd 2.4.16.

This is a stable release in the 2.4.x series.

It contains exactly one bugfix in tools/rehash, which was rewritten after 
2.4.14 introduced a critical fault for deployments that have the fulldirhash 
option enabled. Release 2.4.15 was released to resolve this issue, among 
others, but the tool as released with 2.4.15 contained Perl syntax errors.

We recommend ALL sites that deploy Cyrus IMAP with the fulldirhash option 
enabled to update to 2.4.16.

Please see bug #3651[1] for a full history of this bug. A special thanks goes 
out to Carlos Velasco for catching and reporting this issue first.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

On behalf of the Cyrus team,

Kind regards,
