+* Improve automatic mailbox format detection
+This release introduces a notion of accuracy level for the purpose of
+mailbox format detection.
+Selecting the accuracy level allows the user to achieve the desired
+balance between the speed of the folder scan and accuracy of mailbox
+format detection.
+The accuracy level can be set either from the configuration file,
+using the mailbox.accuracy-level statement, or from the environment,
+via the MU_AUTODETECT_ACCURACY variable.
+The default accuracy level 1 discerns valid mbox and dotmail mailboxes
+providing reasonable scan speed.
+Level 0 (previous default) does not discern them, but provides maximal
+Level 2 and higher provide better accuracy at the price of speed.
+* Bugfixes
+** mh - correctly parse +/abs/path folder specification
+** tls - fix handle interruptions in read routine
+** URL parser: use case-insensitive comparison for auth and host parts
+** maidag: fix coredump in daemon mode
+** movemail: make sure UIDLs are properly stored.
+** mail: force mime mode if at least one attachment was given
