OfflineIMAP v7.2.1 is out.


  wget "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OfflineIMAP/offlineimap/v7.2.1/requirements.txt" -O requirements.txt
  pip install -r ./requirements.txt --user git+https://github.com/OfflineIMAP/offlineimap.git@v7.2.1

This new version introduces interesting features. The fingerprints now accepts
hashes in sha224, sha256, sha384 and sha512 to improve the compatibility with
IMAP servers.

There's a new script in ./contrib to store passwords with GPG.

The new GSSAPI library for kerberos gets a fix about authentication. Gmail
labels can now have parenthesis and the hostname can have path separators in
theirs names.

There's a lot of other minors improvements to make offlineimap better
(in the documentation, UI, configuration file and the code).

This release was tested by:

- Nicolas Sebrecht

Thanks to all the contributors. A lot of patches are first time contributions to
this project. This is very pleasant.

Special thanks to Ilias Tsitsimpis, Eygene Ryabinkin, Chris Coleman our long
time contributors involved in this release and Sebastian Spaeth who is still
paying for the domain name!
