Hi Mailman-Users, -Developers and -i18ners,

Mailman 2.1.8b1 was released for beta test.  Talks are going around on 
the start of 2.2 after the release of 2.1.8 the final of 2.1-maint 
branch.  I really want to call this final than beta but we should take 
careful steps.

Please download it from Sourceforge file area:

2.1.8b1 (23-Mar-2006)

   Bug fixes and other patches

     - Bouncers support added: 'unknown user', Microsoft SMTPSVC, 
       and several others.

     - Updated email library to 2.5.7 which will encode payload into 
       upon setting.  This enabled backing out the scrubber related patches
       including 'X-Mailman-Scrubbed' header in 2.1.7.

     - Fix SpamDetect.py potential hold/reject loop problem.

     - A warning message from email package to the stderr can cause error
       in Logging because stderr may be detached from the process during
       the qrunner run.  We chose not to output errors to stderr but to
       the logs/error if the process is running under mailmanctl subprocess.

     - DKIM header cleansing was separated from Cleanse.py and added to
       -owner messages too.

     - Fixes: Lose Topics when go directly to topics URL (1194419).
       UnicodeError running bin/arch (1395683).  edithtml.py missing import
       (1400128).  Bad escape in cleanarch.  Wrong timezone in list archive
       index pages (1433673).  bin/arch fails with TypeError (1430236).
       Subscription fails with some Language combinations (1435722).
       Postfix delayed notification not recognized (863989).  2.1.7 (VERP)
       mistakes delay notice for bounce (1421285).  show_qfiles: 'str'
       object has no attribute 'as_string' (1444447).  Utils.get_domain()
       wrong if VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW off (1275856).
