Nice. IMAP is also noticably faster. I had a couple of crashes during the 
KMail migration and I also had the problem with messages not showing up in the 
list. Also a few freezes but they seem to have stopped now.

The reproducable bugs are mainly cosmetic:

 - Global font changes isn't applied in KMail folder- and messagelist and in 
the calender month view.
 - KMail systray icon flickers on and off when syncronizing mail, if it is set 
to only show when there is unread mail.
 - Automatic spell checking doesn't seem to work in composer.
 - Kleopatra systray icon is missing.
 - Icons for ToDo list and Journal is missing.

These are just very minor cosmetic bugs so I'll just collect them during the 
next days and then use an hour or so on reporting them.
All in all I'm quite happy with this release and I'm glad that the team took 
the time to iron out serious bugs.
