Hello Mailman enthusiasts!
Time and motion Wind and sun and rain Days connect like boxcars in a train
Another Pycon has come and gone and with it, another fantastic sprint among the core developers. We accomplished quite a bit, and now we'd like to share the results with you. On behalf of the Mailman development team, I am happy to announce the first beta release of the full Mailman 3 suite.
This release includes:
Postorius 1.0.0b1 (Year of the Parrot), our new Django-based web user interface for list owners and list members.
HyperKitty 1.0.0b1, the fantastic new Django-based archiver.
Mailman Core 3.0b4 (Time and Motion), the mailing list engine and administrative REST API.
The mailman-bundler package 3.0b1, a helpful buildout-based tool for putting it all together.
We're very excited to finally be able to announce this preview of the entire suite of tools, and we hope you'll give it a try. As with any beta software, we give a word of caution should you be adventurous enough to want to try it in production. There are surely bugs and missing features, but we feel confident enough to encourage you to play with the system and provide us with feedback, bug reports, suggestions, and above all, contributions!
Each project is separately downloadable from the Python Cheeseshop, and links are provided below. Perhaps the best way to begin is to grab the bundler, unpack it and, follow the directions included in the bundle. It should work on most modern *nixes with Python 2.7.
You can download the bundler tarball from:
See below for links to the individual project pages, bug report packages, and package documentation. The best place to discuss Mailman 3 is on the mailman-developers mailing list, or on IRC via the freenode #mailman channel.
Enjoy! -Barry (On behalf of the entire GNU Mailman development team)
P.S. My personal, deepest thanks to Florian, Terri, Aurélien, Mark, John, and Piotr for coming to Pycon, working hard and joyfully at the sprints, sharing friendly meals and tea shop excursions, and to Steve who wasn't able to make it in person, and also to all the contributors to the project who make the code better and the community an honor to be a part of.
