I've released Mailman 2.1 beta 5, and upgraded the python.org server
to run this version, so with this announcement you are seeing its
effects. :) Everything seems to be cruising along smoothly, so
hopefully we'll have better luck with this version than with 2.1b4.
See below for a list of changes since 2.1b4. Lots of bug fixes, u/i
tweaks, and added support for Estonian.
Be sure to read the IMPORTANT note in the change file below. If
you're seeing horrible performance with Pipermail archives under
2.1b4, there is a fix available but you will have to take some manual
-------------------- snip snip --------------------
2.1 beta 5 (19-Nov-2002)
As is typical for a late beta release, this one includes the usual
bug fixes, tweaks, and massive new features (just kidding).
IMPORTANT: If you are using Pipermail, and you have any archives
that were created or added to in 2.1b4, you will need to run
bin/b4b5-archfix, followed by bin/check_perms to fix some serious
performance problems. From you install directory, run
"bin/b4b5-archfix --help" for details.
- The personalization options have been tweaked to provide more
control over mail header and decoration personalizations. In
2.1b4, when personalization was enabled, the To and Cc headers
were always overwritten. But that's usually not appropriate for
anything but announce lists, so now these headers aren't changed
unless "Full personalization" is enabled.
- You now need to go to the General category to enable emergency
- The order of the hold modules in the GLOBAL_PIPELINE has
changed, again. Now Moderate comes before Hold.
- Estonian language support has been added.
- All posted messages should now get decorated with headers and
footers in a MIME-safe way. Previously, some MIME type messages
didn't get decorated at all.
- bin/arch grew a -q/--quiet option
- bin/list_lists grew a -b/--bare option
