Again a new version of Dovecot is released. As far as I can tell it’s just a bug fix release (mostly concerning ACL’s) and not a security fix. I think that if you are not affected then you are not required to upgrade and can skip this one. But sometimes it’s better to be safe then sorry.
Now I’ve got my production server running Dovecot (finally) and can tell you that it really rocks and I performed the upgrade without any problem. Just configure, compile and install as per instructions and then kill the current running dovecot process. The new version should start automatically.
Just an small remark, just saw in my WordPress dashboard before posting this, that I’ve passed the 200 blogposts on this blog. That is excluding the 134 pages (the actual documentation) and the 920 comments (which I tend to prune every now and then to keep them relevant).
