There are no differences between 2.1.9 and the latest 2.1.12 release in
this respect. See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/84A9> and
consider option 2 - post only plain text and/or configure content
filtering to remove all non-plain-text.

Do you have an actual reference stating that the unsubscribe
information is not compliant if it is in a separate MIME part?
