And there are a few more classes worth writing about: The Searcher<ItemType> is a Searcher class which returns MessageItems, CalendarItems and so on.

Changelog for this version

  • The Item class now has most of the methods from the SimpleItem class: Delete, Copy, Move

  • New Folder<ItemType> class.
