As promised. No changes since v1.2.rc8 (except packaged in OS X, since  
CentOS 5 autotools didn't add support for configure --docdir).

Below are the largest changes since v1.1:

	* When creating files or directories to mailboxes, Dovecot now uses
	  the mailbox directory's permissions and GID for them. Previous
	  versions simply used 0600 mode always. For backwards compatibility
	  dovecot-shared file's permissions still override these with Maildir.
	* SQL dictionary (quota) configuration file is different than in v1.1.
	  See doc/dovecot-dict-sql-example.conf for the new format.
	* deliver -m: Mailbox name is now assumed to be in UTF-8 format,
	  not modified-UTF7. Stephan Bosch's new Sieve implementation also
	  assumes UTF-8 format in fileinto parameters.

	+ Full support for shared mailboxes and IMAP ACL extension.
	  The code is mainly from Sascha Wilde and Bernhard Herzog.
	+ IMAP: Added support for extensions: CONDSTORE, QRESYNC, ESEARCH,
	+ SEARCH supports INTHREAD search key, but the rest of the INTHREAD
	  draft isn't implemented yet so it's not advertised in capability.
	+ THREAD REFS algorithm where threads are sorted by their latest
	  message instead of the thread root message. There is also no base
	  subject merging.
	+ IMAP: Implemented imap-response-codes draft.
	+ Thread indexes for optimizing IMAP THREAD command and INTHREAD
	  search key.
	+ Added userdb checkpassword (by Sascha Wilde)
	+ Virtual mailboxes: http://wiki.dovecot.org/Plugins/Virtual
	+ Autocreate plugin: http://wiki.dovecot.org/Plugins/Autocreate
	+ Listescape plugin: http://wiki.dovecot.org/Plugins/Listescape
