I spent a couple of days reviving the stale 2.4 development branch by
merging all of the 2.3 changes into it. This branch will now be where
the most active development will be taking place. Any activity on the
2.3 branch will be mostly bugfixes.
New features that are already in 2.4 are extensions that came out of the
IETF Lemonade WG (for resource/bandwidth restricted devices):
With the exception of URLAUTH=BINARY, all extensions were compliant with
the current I-D at the time they were implemented. I will be spending
time going through the published RFCs and making sure that the
implementations are complete/correct.
Other features that are expected to be on the short-term roadmap are:
- Bron's CHARSET changes
- Morphing legacy ANNOTATEMORE extension into current METADATA extension
(this will allow us to add other METADATA-dependent extensions from
- Several features/exhancements that are already running in production
at Fastmail (I'll let Bron elaborate).
I'm sure I'm forgetting something in one of the above lists, but I'll
continue to update as I see fit.
Happy New Year!
