I am pleased to announce the first release candidate for Mailman 2.1.19.
Python 2.4 is the minimum supported, but Python 2.7 is recommended.
This release has several new features, some newly implemented and some backported from the now truly defunct 2.2 branch - there is nothing left in that branch that isn't in this release.
There are also bug fixes.
See the attached README for more details.
Associated with those changes are many things that have i18n impacts including new and modified strings in the message catalog, a new adminaddrchgack.txt template and a minor change to the admindbdetails.html template.
I strongly encourage anyone with an interest in translations of Mailman to get this release and help with updating the translations.
I plan to release the final 2.1.19 release at the end of February, and it would be good to have as many i18n updates as possible by then.
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.
