Yes. The problem of unanticipated exceptions in digest processing
stopping a list was fixed in 2.1.7.

The problem of apostrophes in RFC 2231 encoded parameters was fixed in
the underlying Python email library. I don't remember exactly when,
but I'm pretty sure it was fixed in email 2.5.8 which has shipped with
Mailman starting with 2.1.9.
