I am pleased to announce the second release candidate for Mailman 2.1.16.
Python 2.4 is the minimum supported, but Python 2.7 is recommended.
This release has a few new features and several bug fixed as detailed in the attached README.
Differences from the first candidate are the inclusion of the admindb summary sorting options feature and the 'author is list' feature and a bug fix for lp:1203200. The Farsi translation has also been updated.
Mailman is free software for managing email mailing lists and e-newsletters. Mailman is used for all the python.org and SourceForge.net mailing lists, as well as at hundreds of other sites.
For more information, please see:
Mailman 2.1.16rc2 can be downloaded from
I anticipate that the 2.1.16 final release will be in early September. Bugs found between now and then will be fixed if possible, but I hope that most if not all changes between now and then will be i18n updates. Please send any updates to the templates and/or message catalogs in the 2.1.16rc2 release directly to me no later than 1 Sept 2013.
Note that there is a minor glitch in the tarball in that the NEWS file dates the release as xx-Aug-2013 instead of 19-Jul-2013, but I didn't think it was worth uploading new files for that.
