Subject: [exim] Exim 4.42 release
I have just put Exim release 4.42 on the primary ftp site:

ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/exim-4.42.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/exim-4.42.tar.bz2

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This release is mainly a maintenance release. However, the Sieve maintainer
sent me patches for some new Sieve features, and I've also included the lastest
version of exipick.

As usual, all changes are in the doc/ChangeLog file and new features are
described in the doc/NewStuff file. See also the README.UPDATING file for
changes that might impact on some installations. The manual has not been
updated for this release.
