I am pleased to announce the release of Mailman 2.1.25.

Python 2.4 is the minimum supported, but Python 2.7 is strongly recommended.

This is a routine bug fix release with a minor new feature and some
accessibility improvements for screen readers. See the attached
README.txt for details.

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.

2.1.25 (26-Oct-2017)

  New Features

    - The admindb held subscriptions listing now includes the date of the
      most recent request from the address.  (LP: #1697097)


    - The admin Membership List now includes text for screen readers which
      identifies the function of each checkbox.  CSS is added to the page to
      visually hide the text but still allow screen readers to read it.
      Similar text has been added to some radio buttons on the admindb pages.


    - The Russian translation has been updated by Sergey Matveev.

  Bug fixes and other patches

    - Thanks to Jim Popovitch, certain failures in DNS lookups of DMARC policy
      will now result in mitigations being applied.  (LP: #1722013)

    - The default DMARC reject reason now properly replaces %(listowner)s.
      (LP: #1718962)

    - The web roster page now shows case preserved email addresses.
      (LP: #1707447)

    - Changed the SETGID wrappers to only pass those items in the environment
      that are needed by the called scripts.  (LP: #1705736)

    - Fixed MTA/Postfix.py to ensure that created aliases(.db) and
      virtual-mailman(.db) files are readable by Postfix and the .db files are
      owned by the Mailman user.  (LP: #1696066)

    - Defended against certain web attacks that cause exceptions and "we hit
      a bug" responses when POST data or query fragments contain multiple
      values for the same parameter.  (LP: #1695667)

    - The fix for LP: #1614841 caused a regression in the options CGI.  This
      has been fixed.  (LP: #1602608)

    - Added a -a option to the (e)grep commands in contrib/mmdsr to account
      for logs that may have non-ascii and be seen as binary.

    - Fixed the -V option to bin/list_lists to not show lists whose host is a
      subdomain of the given domain.  (LP: #1695610)
