OfflineIMAP v6.5.7-rc2 is out.

This release candidate should be minor for most users.

The best points are about SSL not falling back on other authentication methods
when failing, better RAM footprint and reduced I/O access.

Documentation had our attention, too.

There's some code cleanups and code refactoring, as usual.

Thanks to all contributors of this release. Some were asked to rework
very old patches and we had very good patch testers.
