This release is the first to include mailet and utility modules, in addition to the core parsing

changed, existing configurations should still be compatible.
Utilities include node serializers to xml and sieve script. The mailet module provides Sieve
in the James 3 codebase.
Java 1.5 is now the minimum version required.
