I am happy to announce the release of the third alpha version of
Mailman 3, code named "Working Man".
This is primarily a preview release so that developers and other
interested people can download the code and participate in Mailman 3's
further development. I believe we are on track for a final release by
the end of the year, and your contributions of code, feedback,
documentation, etc. will be welcome and appreciated!
Please note that this is an alpha release and as such is not ready for
You can get the code from the Cheeseshop:
Mailman 3 is buildout based and requires Python 2.6. To build it, run
this after unpacking the tarball and cd'ing into it
% python bootstrap.py
From there you can run the tests
and build the documentation
Highlights in this release include the start of a REST admin server
for integrating Mailman with external web sites, a combined bin/
mailman uber-command, configuration now done through ini-files using
lazr.config, and better LMTP support.
