I'm pleased to announce the third candidate release for Mailman 2.1.18. This fixes a few bugs since discovered since the second release candidate.
Python 2.4 is the minimum supported, but Python 2.7 is recommended. Please submit any i18n updates before May 1 to get them in the final release. This release has new features to help with mitigation of the impacts of DMARC on mailing lists. There is also a new dependency associated with these features. Namely, the new Privacy options -> Sender filters -> dmarc_moderation_action feature requires that the dnspython <http://www.dnspython.org/> package be available in Python. There are also bug fixes. See the attached README for more 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. For more information, please see: http://www.list.org http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman http://mailman.sourceforge.net/ Mailman 2.1.18rc1 can be downloaded from https://launchpad.net/mailman/2.1/ http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/mailman/ https://sourceforge.net/projects/mailman/ -- Mark Sapiro <m...@msapiro.net> The highway is for gamblers, San Francisco Bay Area, California better use your sense - B.

2.1.18rc3 (25-Apr-2014) Bug fixes and other patches - The Reply-To: munging options weren't honored if there was no from_is_list action. (LP: #1313010) - Changed from_is_list actions to insert the list address in Cc: if the list is fully personalized. Otherwise, the list address is only in From: and Reply-To: overrides it. (LP: #1312970) - Fixed the Munge From action to only Munge the From: and/or Reply-To: in the outgoing message and not in archives, digests and messages sent via the usenet gateway. (LP: #1311431) 2.1.18rc2 (19-Apr-2014) Bug fixes and other patches - The new Utils.IsDMARCProhibited() used collections.defaultdict which requires Python 2.5. Changed to use a dict and setdefault. 2.1.18rc1 (18-Apr-2014) Dependencies - There is a new dependency associated with the new Privacy options -> Sender filters -> dmarc_moderation_action feature discussed below. This requires that the dnspython <http://www.dnspython.org/> package be available in Python. This package can be downloaded from the above site or from the CheeseShop <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/dnspython/> or installed with pip. New Features - The from_is_list feature introduced in 2.1.16 is now unconditionally available to list owners. There is also, a new Privacy options -> Sender filters -> dmarc_moderation_action feature which applies to list messages where the From: address is in a domain which publishes a DMARC policy of reject or possibly quarantine. This is a list setting with values of Accept, Wrap Message, Munge From, Reject or Discard. There is a new DEFAULT_DMARC_MODERATION_ACTION configuration setting to set the default for this, and the list admin UI is not able to set an action which is 'less' than the default. The prior ALLOW_FROM_IS_LIST setting has been removed and is effectively always Yes. There is a new DMARC_QUARANTINE_MODERATION_ACTION configuration setting which defaults to Yes but can be set to No to exclude domains with DMARC policy of quarantine from dmarc_moderation_action. dmarc_moderation_action and from_is_list interact in the following way. If the message is From: a domain to which dmarc_moderation_action applies and if dmarc_moderation_action is other than Accept, dmarc_moderation_action applies to that message. Otherwise the from_is_list action applies. i18n - Added missing <mm-digest-question-start> tag to French listinfo template. (LP: #1275964) Bug Fixes and other patches - Fixed a long standing issue in which a notice sent to a user whose language is other than that of the list can cause subsequent things which should be in the list's language to be in the user's language instead. (LP: #1308655) - Fixed the admin Membership List so a search string if any is not lost when visiting subsequent fragments of a chunked list. (LP: #1307454) - For from_is_list feature, use email address from original From: if original From: has no display name and strip domain part from resultant names that look like email addresses. (LP: #1304511) - Added the list name to the vette log "held message approved" entry. (LP: 1295875) - Added the CGI module name to various "No such list" error log entries. (LP: 1295875) - Modified contrib/mmdsr to report module name if present in "No such list error log entries. - Fixed a NameError exception in cron/nightly_gzip when it tries to print the usage message. (LP: #1291038) - Fixed a bug in ListAdmin._handlepost that would crash when trying to preserve a held message for the site admin if HOLD_MESSAGES_AS_PICKLES is False. (LP: #1282365) - The from_is_list header munging feature introduced in Mailman 2.1.16 is no longer erroneously applied to Mailman generated notices. (LP: #1279667) - Changed the message from the confirm CGI to not indicate approval is required for an acceptance of an invitation. (LP: #1277744) - Fixed POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS to be case-insensitiive. (LP: #1267003) - Added recognition for another simple warning to bounce processing. (LP: #1263247) - Fixed a few failing tests in tests/test_handlers.py. (LP: #1262950) - Fixed bin/arch to not create scrubbed attachments for messages skipped when processing the --start= option. (LP: #1260883) - Fixed email address validation to do a bit better in obscure cases. (LP: #1258703) - Fixed a bug which caused some authentication cookies to expire too soon if AUTHENTICATION_COOKIE_LIFETIME is non-zero. (LP: #1257112) - Fixed a possible TypeError in bin/sync_members introduced in 2.1.17. (LP: #1243343) Miscellaneous - Added to the contrib directory, a script from Alain Williams to count posts in a list's archive.
