Version 3.6.90 (git)
+* Support for the new mailbox format - dotmail
+Dotmail is a replacement for traditional mbox format, proposed by
+Kurt Hackenberg. A dotmail mailbox is a single disk file, where
+messages are stored sequentially. Each message ends with a single
+dot (similar to the dormat used in the SMTP DATA command). Any dot
+appearing at the start of the line is doubled, to prevent it from
+being interpreted as end of message marker.
