OfflineIMAP v7.0.14 is out.


  wget "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OfflineIMAP/offlineimap/v7.0.14/requirements.txt" -O requirements.txt
  pip install -r ./requirements.txt --user git+https://github.com/OfflineIMAP/offlineimap.git@v7.0.14

Here is a new small fixup release for the v7.0 series. The first v7.0.0 release
is near to 8 months old. This v7.0.14 release is more reliable than v6.7.0.3.
Hence, I'm deprecating the v6.7 series.

Now, you are all enjoined to migrate to v7.0.14. Migrating back to v6.7 is not
supported so you might like to backup your local maildirs and metadata first.

We will fully remove the legacy text backend driver in near future. The SQLite
driver proved to be better for both performance and reliability.

With this release we use imaplib2 v2.57 to support some faulting IMAP servers,
fix a little bug about the backend migration to SQLite and serialize the sync
processes to prevent from issues when both IDLE and autorefresh are enabled.

Thanks to all the contributors and testers.

Happy sync'ing!
