Log Message:
Update to 6.3.14:

fetchmail 6.3.14 (released 2010-02-05, 25487 LoC):

* SSL/TLS certificate information is now also reported properly on computers
  that consider the "char" type signed. Fixes malloc() buffer overrun.
  Workaround for older versions: do not use verbose mode.
  See fetchmail-SA-2010-01.txt for details, including a minimal patch.

* The IMAP client no longer skips messages from several IMAP servers including
  Dovecot if fetchmail's "idle" is in use.  Causes were that fetchmail (a)
  ignored some untagged responses when it should not (b) relied on EXISTS
  messages in response to EXPUNGE, which aren't mandated by RFC-3501 (the IMAP
  standard) and aren't sent by Dovecot either.
    Fix by Sunil Shetye (the fix also consolidates IMAP response handling,
  improving overall robustness of the IMAP client), bug report and testing by
  Matt Doran, with further hints from Timo Sirainen.
* The SMTP client now recovers from errors (such as servers dropping the
  connection after errors) when sending an RSET command.
    Fix by Sunil Shetye. Report by James Moe.
* The IMAP client now uses "SEARCH UNSEEN" rather than "SEARCH UNSEEN NOT
  DELETED" again on IMAP2, to fix a regression in fetchmail 6.2.5 reported by
  Will Stringer in June 2004. (Sunil Shetye)
* The IMAP client now uses "SEARCH UNSEEN UNDELETED" on IMAP4 and IMAP4r1
  servers (Sunil Shetye).
* Workaround: The IMAP client now falls back to "FETCH n:m FLAGS" if the server
  does not support "SEARCH". (Sunil Shetye)
* The IMAP client now requests message numbers in batches of 1,000 to avoid
  problems if there are more than 1860 unseen messages. (Sunil Shetye)
    Note that this wasn't security relevant because fetchmail would only read up
  to the maximum buffer size and leave the remainder of the string unread, going
  out of synch afterwards.
* Stricter validation of IMAP responses containing byte or message counts.

* Only include gssapi.h if we're not including gssapi/gssapi.h, to fix a FreeBSD
  compiler warning about gssapi.h being obsolete.

* The README.SSL document was revised for grammar, spelling, and clarity.

fetchmail 6.3.13 (released 2009-10-30, 25333 LoC):

* The multiline SMTP error fix in release 6.3.12 caused fetchmail to lose
  message codes 400..599 and treat all of these as temporary error. This would
  cause messages to be left on the server even if softbounce was turned off.
  Reported by Thomas Jarosch.

fetchmail 6.3.12 (released 2009-10-05):

* The CVS-2009-2666 fix in fetchmail release 6.3.11 caused a free() of
  unallocated memory on SSL connections, which caused crashes or program aborts
  on some systems (depending on how initialization and free() of unallocated
  memory is handled in compiler and libc).
  Workaround for older versions: run in verbose mode.
  Patch courtesy of Thomas Heinz, fixes Gentoo Bug #280760.
  This regression affected only the 6.3.11 release, but not the patch that was
  part of the security announcement fetchmail-SA-2009-01.

* Fix error reporting for GSSAPI on Heimdal (h5l) Kerberos.
* Look for MD5_Init in libcrypto rather than libssl, fixes Gentoo Kerberos
  builds; fixes upstream parts of Gentoo Bugs #231400 and #185652, and fixes
  BerliOS Bug #16134.
* Report multiline SMTP errors properly, reported by Earl Chew; fixes Debian Bug
  #529899, reported by Akihiro Terasaki.
  Note: This fix introduced a regression, fixed in 6.3.13.
* Replace control characters in SMTP replies by '?'.
* Fetchmailconf: Fix descriptions for smtpaddress and smtpname options;
  smtpaddress is for RCPT TO, not MAIL FROM. Found by Gerard Seibert. well as translation updates in all three releases.
