Postfix 2.2.8 available Wietse Venema Wed Aug 09 23:37:17 2006

Postfix 2.2.8 backs out a workaround for broken servers/firewalls
that created more problems than it solved.

- The Postfix 2.2.6 paranoia about malformed remote server replies
caused "multiple delivery" problems or "no delivery" problems with
broken servers/firewalls. Postfix still logs a warning but no longer
defers delivery.

A similar workaround back-out is available as snapshot 20060103.

Other minor fixes are listed in the HISTORY file fragment below.

HISTORY file:
=============

20051212

        Bugfix: an EHLO I/O error after STARTTLS would be reported
        as a STARTTLS I/O error. File: smtp/smtp_proto.c.

20051213

        Bugfix: the *SQL, proxy and LDAP maps were not defined in
        user-land commands such as postqueue. Leandro Santi. File:
        postqueue/postqueue.c.

20051225

        Workaround: the regexp map cleverly avoided scanning constant
        results for non-existent $number expressions, but failed
        to subject those constant results to $$ -> $ replacement.
        Since fixing this requires too much change for a stable
        release, the optimization is turned off (it doesn't exist
        in the 2.2 PCRE map, either). Files: util/dict_regexp.c.

20051231

        Bugfix: the anvil server would terminate after "max_idle"
        seconds, even when this was less than the anvil_rate_time_unit
        interval. File: anvil/anvil.c.

20060101

        Portability: 64-bit support for LINUX chroot script by Keith
        Owens.  File: examples/chroot-setup/LINUX2.

20060103

        Backout: the Postfix 2.2.6 paranoia about garbage in remote
        server replies caused "multiple delivery" problems or "no
        delivery" problems with broken servers/firewalls. Postfix
        still logs a warning but no longer defers delivery.  File:
        smtp/smtp_chat.c.

        Portability: FreeBSD 6 is a supported platform. Files:
        util/sys_defs.h, makedefs.
