 The 0.7 release brings another round of API enhancements, bug fixes and performance optimizations.

 A major effort has been put in code reorganization, separating parsing code from DOM manipulation
-code. Mime4J 0.7 introduces the "dom" package collecting base/abstract classes and interfaces
for
-MIME-DOM manipulation aiming to provide the base for a full featured traversable DOM.
-Mime4J 0.7 improve support for headless messages, malformed separation between headers and
body
-and adds support for "obsolete" rfc822 syntax (e.g: "Header<somespace>: " style).
-Parsing performance for quoted printable streams have been considerably improved.
-A "DecodeMonitor" object has been introduced in most code to define how to deal with malformed
-input (Lenient vs Strict behaviours).
+code. Mime4J has been restructured into three separate modules: 'core', 'dom' and 'storage'.

+The 'core' package provides an event-driven SAX style parser that relies on a callback mechanism

+to report parsing events such as the start of an entity header the start of a body, etc.

+The 'dom' package contains base/abstract classes and interfaces for MIME-DOM manipulation
aiming 
+to provide the base for a full featured traversable DOM. Per default the Mime4J DOM builder
stores 
+content of individual body parts in memory. The 'storage' package provides support for more
+complex storage backends such on-disk storage systems, overflow on max limit, or encrypted
storage 
+through JSSE API.

object

 Upgrade Notes
 -------------
 
- * The defualt field parsing logic has been moved from AbstractField to DefaultFieldParser.

- * many classes have been moved from org.apache.james.mime4j.parser to 
-   org.apache.james.mime4j.stream package (ContentHandler, DefaultBodyDescriptor, RawField..)
+ * The default field parsing logic has been moved from AbstractField to DefaultFieldParser.

+ * Low level MIME stream classes have been moved from org.apache.james.mime4j.parser to 
+   org.apache.james.mime4j.stream package (Field, RawField, MimeTokenStream, ...)
  * "dom" classes/interfaces have been moved from the .message and .field package to the .dom
    package tree.
  * The method decodeBaseQuotedPrintable() of class o.a.j.mime4j.codec.DecoderUtil has been
renamed
