IMAP-IDLE version 1.07

Version 1.07 of the IMAP-IDLE plugin for Tiger's has been released.

This version asks Mail to fetch (not sync), due to user reports that sync caused excessive server load. I've received a request to optionally enable "sync", but have not (yet) implemented that feature. It also fixes a memory management issue that caused occasional crashes (unfortunately, not on my test machines -- but thanks for the crash reports!)

Uh, no.

Yesterday, the moving van arrived at my new house in Lenoir, NC. I recently got a job with Google (yay!), and I'll be working in the datacenter there.
