This is the last planned v2.2.x release. We didn't fix everything reported (especially build changes) to try to minimize any unexpected breakages.

v2.3.2 will be out with a lot of fixes hopefully in a few weeks. That will start becoming the recommended version to run then.

 * login-proxy: If ssl_require_crl=no, allow revoked certificates.
   Also don't do CRL checks for incoming client certificates.
 * stats plugin: Don't temporarily enable PR_SET_DUMPABLE while opening
   /proc/self/io. This may still cause security problems if the process
   is ptrace()d at the same time. Instead, open it while still running
   as root.

 + doveadm: Added mailbox cache decision&remove commands. See
   doveadm-mailbox(1) man page for details.
 + doveadm: Added rebuild attachments command for rebuilding
   $HasAttachment or $HasNoAttachment flags for matching mails. See
   doveadm-rebuild(1) man page for details.
 + cassandra: Use fallback_consistency on more types of errors
 - cassandra: Fix consistency=quorum to work
 - dsync: Lock file generation failed if home directory didn't exist
 - In some configs if namespace root directory didn't yet exist, Dovecot
   failed to create mailboxes.lock when trying to create mailboxes
 - Snippet generation for HTML mails didn't ignore &entities inside
   blockquotes, producing strange looking snippets.
 - imapc: Fix assert-crash if getting disconnected and after
   reconnection all mails in the selected mailbox are gone.
 - pop3c: Handle unexpected server disconnections without assert-crash
 - fts: Fixes to indexing mails via virtual mailboxes.
 - fts: If mails contained NUL characters, the text around it wasn't
 - Obsolete dovecot.index.cache offsets were sometimes used. Trying to
   fetch a field that was just added to cache file may not have always
   found it.
 - dict-sql: Fix crash when reading NULL value from database
