Issue: Client migrations failed if three consecutive 503 backoff responses were received. The client would enter a “throttled” state which quickly exhausted the remaining retry requests and failed the migration with the “Migration failed due to network error” message.
This issue has been fixed. The client now properly performs exponential backoff when receiving 503 requests. The client retries up to 10 times increasing the sleep period exponentially before retrying a request. If a successful event occurs, the retry and sleep times are reset.

Added new command line option --emapi_sleep_time. This setting allows you to increase the number of milliseconds that GAMMO pauses between each email migration API request.
Deleted items were being migrated into the Gmail inbox and not trash. Deleted items now are properly migrated to trash.
Changed the required minimum wait between email migration API requests from 700ms to 1000ms.

Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Outlook® calendar migrations now uses the latest Google Calendar API (version 3).
Calendar migrations now recognize more time zones.
Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Outlook® can now get the sender's email address from the message's internet headers even if it's missing from the sender field in Outlook.
This release fixes the following issues:
- Removed ClientLogin API support, as the API is deprecated. This means that users can now only authenticate using the browser with OAuth.
- Removed the incorrect request to copy the authorization code during the authorization flow. The prompt now only asks the user to switch back to the application after authorizing access.
- Fixed an issue where re-migrating secondary calendars would fail if the user had deleted the calendar in Google Apps.
- Fixed issue where the -noenable_label_prefixes command line option was not respected when using the GUI.
- The command line option -noenable_label_prefixes was renamed to -noenable_label_prefix to be consistent with Google Apps Migration for Microsoft® Exchange (GAMME).
- Fixed a crash that would happen if the password dialog was cancelled when performing a PST migration.

Google Apps Migration now supports SSO via 3-legged OAuth
Google Apps Migration now supports using 3-legged OAuth for migrating users' mail, contacts, and calendar data to Google Apps. When running the migration utility, users can now sign in to their Google Apps account via a Single Sign On (SSO) system—using their current service's login credentials, rather than their Google Apps credentials.
3-legged OAuth is also more secure since users can explicitly grant access to their account and then revoke it any time.
The new version also supports a new command-line flag to disable calendar fanouts, creating events only for the user whose data is being migrated—without adding the event to calendars of other attendees. This new flag is useful when performing test migrations.
