Version 4.4.0 of getmail

Release Notes: Adds a new POP3-over-SSL initialization class, which is automatically used when Python 2.4 or newer is in use. This reduces the overhead involved in retrieving messages from a POP3 SSL server (reduces systime about 35%, user time about 50%, and wall time 10-30%). A getmail_fetch configuration-less command line POP retriever has been added, which is perfect for scripting use. Relative imports within the getmailcore package has been eliminated.
