  • Started moving Mork connector over to new interface
  • Started to move over to using DeferredTask and Promises.
Instant Messaging
  • a few patches for 17 in the queue (eg Fastamil interop for IM)

Schedule and Progress

  • 16.0.2 and 10.0.10esr released, fixing further security issues mainly due to core code. Also fixed an IMAP download issue.
