I am happy to announce the second beta release of Mailman 2.1.10. For
technical reasons, there was no 'b2' release.

This is a security and bug fix release and it is highly recommended
that all sites upgrade to this version.  Mailman 2.1.10 also adds support
for two new language translations, Hebrew and Slovak and a few new features.

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.

Special thanks are due to Barry Warsaw and Tokio Kikuchi for much coding
and support, Moritz Naumann for help with security issues and Jim Tittsler
for a significant patch.

Changes since 2.1.10b1 include:

~  - Fixed cron/disabled to test if bounce info is stale before disabling a
~    member when the threshold has been reduced.

~  - Improved processing of backup/recovery of queue files.

~  - Updated mmdsr script.

~  - Updated Vietnamese and Danish translations.

And here are the major changes from 2.1.9 that were included in 2.1.10b1:

~  Security

~    - The 2.1.9 fixes for CVE-2006-3636 have been enhanced.  In particular,
~      many potential cross-site scripting attacks have are now detected in
~      editing templates and updating the list's info attribute via the web
~      admin interface.  Thanks again to Moritz Naumann for assistance with
~      this.

~  New Features

~    - Changed cmd_who.py to list all members if authorization is with the
~      list's admin or moderator password and to accept the password if the
~      roster is public.  Also changed the web roster to show hidden members
~      when authorization is by site or list's admin or moderator password
~      (1587651).

~    - Added the ability to put a list name in accept_these_nonmembers
~      to accept posts from members of that list (1220144).

~    - Added a new 'sibling list' feature to exclude members of another list
~      from receiving a post from this list if the other list is in the To: or
~      Cc: of the post or to include members of the other list if that list is
~      not in the To: or Cc: of the post (Patch ID 1347962).

~    - Added the admin_member_chunksize attribute to the admin General Options
~      interface (Bug 1072002, Partial RFE 782436).


~    - Added the Hebrew translation from Dov Zamir.  This includes addition of
~      a direction ('ltr', 'rtl') to the LC_DESCRIPTIONS table.  The
~      add_language() function defaults direction to 'ltr' to not break
~      existing mm_cfg.py files.

~    - Added the Slovak translation from Martin Matuska.
