Log Message:
Update to 3.0.

notable pkgsrc-relevant changes:

  * Since support for non-system sound events has been removed from
    GNOME 2.14, the mail-notification.soundlist file is no longer

  * desktop file forced to share/applications from etc/xdg/autostart
    (see below)

Other changes:

	[various translations updated]

	* Evolution changes:
		* Evolution crashed when a message without Subject or
		  From header was received: fixed
		* Mail Notification could crash when removing an
		  Evolution mailbox: fixed

	* Core changes:
		* An alternate, compact mail summary has been added
		* A "Display seen messages" option has been added
		* The status icon can now be displayed permanently
		* The "Delay between mail checks" option is now
		* The properties dialog has been reorganized
		* The main window has been removed
		* The status icon is now activated with a single click
		* The GTK+ bugs
		  which caused occasional crashes have been worked
		* If the MAIL environment variable is not defined or
		  invalid, the system mailbox is now looked up in
		  /var/spool/mail/username and /var/mail/username
		  (based on a patch from Benoît Rouits)
		* Since ~/.gnome2/mail-notification/mailboxes.xml may
		  contain sensitive information, it is now saved with
		  permissions set to 0600 (useful for systems where
		  home directories have lax permissions)
		* The "cannot enable immediate notification" error
		  dialog has been removed
		* The --list-features command line option has been
		  removed (feature information is now displayed in the
		  output of the --version option)
		* The message handling performance has been improved
		* If there are no mailboxes on startup, the properties
		  dialog is now displayed
		* The "Start Mail Notification on GNOME login" option
		  no longer worked with GNOME >= 2.14 and has been
		  removed: a .desktop file is now installed in the xdg
		  autostart directory instead
		* The mail reader setting has been removed; the mail
		  reader configured in GNOME (Desktop -> Preferences
		  -> Preferred Applications) will now be used
		* The tooltip width is now limited to the screen width
		* When coupled with a patched GNOME Panel (as shipped
		  by FreeBSD and Debian, for instance), the status
		  icon now supports panel transparency (patch
		  forwarded by Bernat Tallaferro)

	* mbox, Maildir, POP3, IMAP, Evolution and Sylpheed changes:
		* Messages are now classified as unseen and seen; seen
		  messages can be ignored by unchecking the "Display
		  seen mail" option

	* mbox changes:
		* Compressed mailboxes (gzip and bzip2) are now
		  handled transparently, and support immediate

	* POP3, IMAP and Gmail changes:
		* A regression which allowed mail checks to overlap
		  has been fixed

	* POP3 and IMAP changes:
		* If the server advertises the STLS/STARTTLS
		  capability but replies ERR/BAD when the
		  STLS/STARTTLS command is issued, Mail Notification
		  now logs out instead of proceeding
		* If multiple mailboxes have the same type, hostname,
		  port, connection type and username, Mail
		  Notification will now detect that the mailboxes
		  share the same account and will only prompt for the
		  password once per session (when the password is not
		  entered in the properties dialog, that is)

	* POP3 changes:
		* Non-UTF-8 server responses are now accepted

	* IMAP changes:
		* Non-ASCII server responses are now accepted (these
		  responses violate RFC 3501, but we follow the RFC
		  793 robustness principle "be liberal in what you
		  accept"); fixes connection problems with
		  internationalized Exchange servers, which violate
		  RFC 3501 by sending non-ASCII characters in their
		  greeting message
		* Empty continuation responses are now allowed (fixes
		  authentication with some SASL mechanisms)
		* Play nice with uncompliant servers by using
		  BODY.PEEK rather than BODY, so that they do not set
		  the \Seen flag (patch from Jacob Berkman)
		* The IDLE mode is now cycled every 29 minutes, as
		  advised by RFC 2177

	* Evolution changes:
		* Support for the Evolution 2.4 and 2.6 branches has
		  been added; untested support for the Evolution
		  2.7/2.8 branch has been added; the Evolution source
		  tree is no longer needed for Evolution >= 2.4

	* Sylpheed changes:
		* With the help of a Sylpheed patch, Mail Notification
		  can now reliably avoid race conditions which could
		  occur when Sylpheed was running (see the
		  --enable-sylpheed-locking discussion in the INSTALL

	* New translations:
		* Czech (Pav Lucistnik)
		* Brazilian Portuguese (Claudio André)
		* Dutch (Marcel J. Zwiebel)
		* Japanese (Hiroshi Hasebe)
