CVS is (in a nutshell) a version control system that lets a group of
developers work on the same code at the same time.  It can have 'branches'
of the code, which is a convenient way to manage developing multiple
versions at the same time.  So at the moment there is a "1.0.x" branch,
which is what gets made into the 1.0.x releases, and there is the "HEAD"
(default) branch, which is where the main development takes place.  When 1.1
is released, it will be based on the code in CVS Head.

To get hold of the code in CVS, follow the instructions here:


(Actually, IMO, the easiest way with Windows is to get TortoiseCVS and then
just paste in the CVSROOT from the above page).

:)  It's not that tricky if you know the commands.  Basically you open up a
command prompt (DOS prompt, command window, shell, or whatever you like to
call it) and type "telnet imap.server.address 143" then various commands.
(e.g. "login username password", "select inbox", etc).
