# JaroMail ChangeLog
+## 4.1
+## 29 Dec 2015
+Password storage refactoring: updating to this release requires users
+to re-enter their passwords saved in the system's keyring. The old
+local keyring code was removed and support for secret-tool is
+activated when present in newer GNU/Linux distros: it is a better
+alternative to our own gnome-keyring client. Minor cleanups.
## 4.0
