A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the IMAP APPEND Extensions of the IETF.

        Title           : IMAP4 non-synchronizing literals
        Author          : Alexey Melnikov
	Filename        : draft-ietf-imapapnd-rfc2088bis-03.txt
	Pages           : 8
	Date            : 2016-03-02

   The Internet Message Access Protocol (RFC 3501) contains the
   "literal" syntactic construct for communicating strings.  When
   sending a literal from client to server, IMAP requires the client to
   wait for the server to send a command continuation request between
   sending the octet count and the string data.  This document specifies
   an alternate form of literal that does not require this network round

   This document specifies 2 IMAP extensions: LITERAL+ and LITERAL-.
   LITERAL+ allows the alternate form of literals in all IMAP commands.
   LITERAL- is the same as LITERAL+, but disallows the alternate form of
   literals unless they are 4096 bytes or less.

   This document obsoletes RFC 2088.
