AFAIk, after communication with others and having been on this list for
a while, 2.0.x has no encryption (SSL or TLS) or otherwise advanced
authentication possibility and has to use /usr/sbin/stunnel for
encrypted connections (man stunnel), whilst 2.1.x has a *lot* of added
functionality, including full SASL.

Something for those who insist on keeping to the so-called "stable"
versions to take into account?
