OfflineIMAP v6.6.0 is out.


After more than 7 months of work since previous stable v6.5.7, this new stable
release is finally ready. This course had interesting fixes, especially some
about long-standing issues. New features are available while most are still
marked experimental. Check intermediate changelogs to know more.

This is good time for a release. Christmas and New Year's celebreations should
be calm for the OfflineIMAP's contributors. :-)

Seasons's Greetings!

# imapfw

The imapfw framework is growing well and I'm now planning to implement a
`offlineimap` action in it. This will allow running imapfw with OfflineIMAP's
configuration file. ,-)
