Name        : libvmime07
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 0.7.1
Release     : 3.fc12
URL         : http://www.zarafa.com/wiki/index.php/Libvmime_patches
Summary     : A powerful C++ class library for working with MIME/Internet messages
Description :
VMime is a powerful C++ class library for parsing, generating or
editing Internet RFC-[2]822 and MIME messages. VMime is designed
to provide a fast and an easy way to manipulate Internet mail

It also includes support for using messaging protocols (POP3, IMAP,
SMTP and maildir) with a lot of features supported: listing folders,
downloading and adding messages to folders, extracting parts from
message, getting and setting message flags and a lot more.

This package contains an old and deprecated version of libvmime.
You need it only if the software you are using hasn't been updated
to work with the newer version and the newer API.

Update Information:

- Added patch to fix RFC 2047 (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2047) encoded
fullname parsing. All addresses after a wrongly parsed address were not
recognized anymore.  - Added patch which adds support for address headers that
specify an (encoded) fullname with an empty email address, which was set by a <>
marker.  - Added patch to strips excessive spaces in parameterized headers.
Backported from upstream subversion.  - Added patch to allow non-RFC '7-bit' and
'8-bit' encodings in Content-Transfer-Encoding headers.


This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update libvmime07' at the command line.
