Mailman 1.0 release candidate 1 (1.0rc1) has just been uploaded to www.list.org. Barring any major screwups by me, this will be the final 1.0 release. The next step is to create the GNU web pages. I just want to personally thank everyone who's helped with ideas, contributions, suggestions, and support in getting us to where we are.
Here are a few things to note about this release:
We have a logo contest winner! By a narrow margin, Dragon's logo has won. My thanks to the other 3 logo creators; in different ways I liked them all, and they are all much better than /I/ could ever have done!
Mailman will now display Dragon's small logo on (most) generated pages; I may have missed a few, but those will all be fixed when we revamp the page designs after 1.0.
You need to read the instructions in the INSTALL file for putting mailman.gif in a place that your Web server can find them, and for setting up the img src URL. Comments on how to improve this manual installation step would be appreciated.
There is a new cron/mailpasswd script which groups users by virtual domains if mm_cfg.VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW is true (the default). While I've tested this feature, I would /really/ appreciate some more detailed testing by you folks who run multiple virtual domains (hi Greg S. :-). Please, let's not wait until June 1 to find out something is broken, but also be careful not to spam too many of your users!
If anybody feels like they are being left out of the ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS file, or have any other updates for this file, please send them directly to me. I haven't kept up with this as well as I should have, so don't be shy. :-)
That's all I can think of. Grab the tarball from
P.S. I'll probably somewhat unresponsive to the mailing lists for a while. I need to concentrate on getting the next JPython release out.
