Now that v2.0 is in beta stage I don't expect anything big to change
anymore. The configuration and the APIs shouldn't change in
non-backwards compatible ways. There are still bugs left to be fixed and
some small features to be implemented, but I'd like to have people start
testing it more.

The biggest unimplemented "feature" is how to convert v1.x configuration
easily/automatically to v2.0. Either the old config file should be
translated to new one, or Dovecot should be able to read the old config
file as-is. I think I like the translation better, so that people won't
still be using v1.x configuration when v2.1 arrives and drops v1.x

Largest changes since alpha3:

 - if some IP address is failing authentications, all auth attempts from
the IP are delayed increasingly. a successful auth drops the delay. max
delay is 15 seconds. this is enforced by auth process, so it works
across different connections/processes/protocols.
 - lib-storage plugin API changed. processes handling multiple users now
support different plugins for different users.
 - expire plugin's settings work a bit differently now:
 - post-login scripting works again, see
 - Tons of fixes
