I am pleased to announce the release of Mailman 2.1.34.
This is a minor bug fix release and has updates to the Spanish i18n. See
the attached README.txt for details.
As noted Mailman 2.1.30 was the last feature release of the Mailman 2.1
branch from the GNU Mailman project. There has been some discussion as
to what this means. It means there will be no more releases from the GNU
Mailman project containing any new features. There may be future patch
releases to address the following:
bugs affecting operation for which no satisfactory workaround exists.
Mailman 2.1.34 is the fourth such patch release.
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 our web site at one of:

There was a critical bug reported yesterday which would cause users to get 404 pages instead of their list options page. Upon investigation, it was found that the bug was related to bumping of Mailman Core's API version to 3.1 in django-mailman3 1.3.3 release.
Because this bug can cause problems accessing several pages in web interface, we have a quick bugfix release for you.
If you have already upgraded to 1.3.3 and don't wish to do another upgrade/restart, you have an option to run the command below to avoid the bug:
$ python manage.py clear_cache -a
This should invalidate the cache entries which cause the 404 bug.
The new release is available through PyPI at:
The changelog is available at:
Finally, as usual, you can update to the new release using pip:
$ pip install django-mailman3==1.3.4

I am pleased to announce new stable releases for:
- Postorius: 1.3.3
- Hyperkitty: 1.3.3
- Mailmanclient: 3.3.1
- Django-mailman3: 1.3.3
Python 3.6+ and Django 2.0+ is supported for all of them. Django 3.0 support for Hyperkitty requires manually upgrading a dependency (django-haystack>=3.0b2, once a stable version of this has been released, it shouldn't require manually upgrading).
There are tons of bug-fixes across the board and some new features.
Biggest visible change is switch to Bootstrap 4, which has been long pending for us. Bootstrap 4 completely changes the CSS grid model using the new Flexbox. There might be some small changes or breakages when using on mobile. Please report such issues to us via Gitlab!
Some other notable changes are in Postorius, which includes many more list settings exposed include content filtering settings, bounce processing (which was added in the previous release of Mailman Core) settings and some other ones. Settings page is also slightly different with all the sections on the vertical menu on left instead of horizontal tabs. You can now also specify a reason when rejecting held messages.
There was also a gnarly bug, which caused the name of some members to be the string "None". For the longest time, I couldn't figure out the reason for it, but it ended up being a simple fix in mailmanclient's json serialization of display_name, which would result in Python's None value being passed as string "None" to Mailman's API for subscription.
There is also better support for filtering visible lists based on the current vhost, which I see a few people are already waiting for from mailman-users list.
A full changelog has been added to each project in the top.
