The relative performance change is huge, but if it only takes a

** kom-fontify-text: controls if bold/italic fontification of texts
takes place.
** kom-format-show-images: controls in-line display of images. When
set to `t', images are displayed in-line (if possible). When set to
`nil', they are treated as normal texts.
** kom-remember-password: controls whether to remember password in
session buffer. When this is enabled, the client will store the
password used to log on in the session buffer. This may be useful
with automatic re-logins enabled (see kom-relogin-behavior, below).
** kom-relogin-behavior: controls how to behave when commands are
issued in dead sessions. Using this variable, it is possible to
have the client automatically reconnect to the server when a
command is issued in a dead session.
** kom-relogin-inhibit-commands: a list of commands that don't cause
the client to log in automatically in dead sessions (if that
function is enabled at all).

message ID of imported e-mails by default or not.

* Other new major features
** The old modes for listing and prioritizing memberships have been
replaced with a completely new mode. It is accessible from the same
commands as before, and integrates all the functionality of the old
modes and much more.
The new mode has menus and mode documentation in addition to a
quick reference at the end of the buffer.
Certain functions, such as the ability to show only a subset of the
conferences, in the new mode are still experimental.
* Other new major features
Note that the names of all functions and variables related to this
new mode will change in the future. Do not rely on any Lisp names
starting with `lp--'.
** The initial values shown when reading conference names have been
altered. Now (nearly) all commands provide an initial value. The

** The menus have been completely revamped. The goal is now to include

** HTML can now be rendered with w3m.
* Additional changes and bug fixes
** The default session priority is now zero. The old value of one was
appropriate during a transitional period, but isn't appropriate for
new users.
** Bold and italic markup in texts.
** When HTML is not being rendered, generate links for URLs and things
as if the text were plaintext.
** The mode line showing the unread indicator can now list all
sessions with unread texts explicitly. See
kom-unread-mode-line-type for details.
** Sessions can have nicknames, which makes it easier to distinguish
between sessions (particularly sessions on the same server). The
session nickname is shown wherever the session name normally would
be shown. See kom-session-nickname for more details.
** Added MysKOM to the predefined servers list.
