Name        : dovecot
Product     : Fedora 22
Version     : 2.2.16
Release     : 1.fc22
URL         : http://www.dovecot.org/
Summary     : Secure imap and pop3 server
Description :
Dovecot is an IMAP server for Linux/UNIX-like systems, written with security
primarily in mind.  It also contains a small POP3 server.  It supports mail
in either of maildir or mbox formats.

The SQL drivers and authentication plug-ins are in their subpackages.

Update Information:

- dovecot updated to 2.2.16
- auth: Don't crash if master user login is attempted without
  any configured master=yes passdbs
- Parsing UTF-8 text for mails could have caused broken results
  sometimes if buffering was split in the middle of a UTF-8 character.
  This affected at least searching messages.
- String sanitization for some logged output wasn't done properly:
  UTF-8 text could have been truncated wrongly or the truncation may
  not have happened at all.
- fts-lucene: Lookups from virtual mailbox consisting of over 32
  physical mailboxes could have caused crashes.

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