It seams that this release contains very few notable changes from 2.22. However, if this means that the developers have spent time fixing bugs and improving the quality of the system, this could actually be a good thing.

The plan for 2.26 looks exciting though. They are planning to improve IMAP support. I really hope this means that we get a Evolution that handles the Trash folder as a standard serverside IMAP folder, rather than as a virtual folder like today. Using virtual folders makes for such things makes it hard to switch back and fourth between evolution and web based mail clients. Not to mention that it increase the cost of accessing IMAP mailboxes from cell phones.
If they fixt this, that would be something to look forward to.
