Release notes 

Beta testing release for 8.2.0. All users are encouraged to try it out to iron out any problems before the final release of 8.2.0. A few important additions have been made in this version: deploying the built-in SSL functionality of Emacs (available in Emacs 24), listing folders on IMAP servers and other operations on IMAP servers, creating virtual folders of message threads and an ability to sort messages by delivery-date rather than sent-date. See NEWS file for details. The Help menu now has entries for browsing the VM manual and the NEWS file.

  CHANGES

   * New customization variable `vm-spam-score-headers' allows the
     extraction of spam scores. (Replaces the former variable
     `vm-vs-spam-score-headers' used by vm-virtual.el.)

   * The variable `vm-mime-alternative-select-method' renamed to
     `vm-mime-alternative-show-method' to make it clear that it only applies
     to the viewing of messages. The new variable
     `vm-mime-alternative-yank-method' controls the selection of
     alternatives for citation in replies.

  IMPROVEMENTS

   * New variable `vm-mail-use-sender-address' allows `vm-mail' to pick up
     the sender of the current message as the recipient of a new message
     composition.

   * See the new info manual section on "IMAP folders" for newly documented
     functions. In particular, `vm-list-imap-folders' now lists the message
     counts in the IMAP folders.

   * New variable: `vm-sort-messages-by-delivery-date' allows messages to be
     sorted by the date of their delivery instead of the date sent.

   * New virtual folder selectors added: `message-id', `uid' (for IMAP) and
     `uidl' (for POP).

   * New command `vm-create-virtual-folder-of-threads' (bound to `V T')
     allows you to select entire threads into a virtual folder instead of
     individual messages. There are also new virtual folder selectors
     `thread' and `thread-all'.

   * The trace of POP/IMAP sessions are retained in buffers named "trace of
     POP session..." or "trace of IMAP session...". They are useful for
     troubleshooting any problems with mail server connections.

   * Setting `vm-stunnel-program' to nil asks VM to use the built-in SSL
     functionality of Emacs, available in Gnu Emacs 24.

   * New functions `vmpc-folder-match' and `vmpc-folder-account-match' in
     the vm-pcrisis package.

   * New variable `vm-mail-auto-save-directory' where message composition
     buffers are auto-saved.
