The new library currently lives in KDE's svn, 
it is fine to use it for other purposes and you can ask questions
about it over the KDE lists. (Or try here on this list.)
I believe it is pretty complete, and if you find defects in it soon
the chances are higher that we just fix them. 
It depends on QT4 (the non-gui part, which is a general C++ class library).
There is a weak dependency on KDE, if you like to have SSL/TLS certificate 
handling, but you can do without.
kimap is a lot faster and more complete than other libraries we've examined.
Our development target with it is to use it in KDE Kontact (Prototype-E5),
but hey this is Free Software, it would be cool to have a community around it.

Sorry for the delay, we are planning to have a techbase wiki page but this did 
not happen as fast as I was hoping for.
