I have just put Exim release 4.63 on the primary ftp site:

ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/exim-4.63.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/exim-4.63.tar.bz2

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This release fixes some bugs and adds some new features. The manual has been
brought up-to-date with all the changes since 4.62.

As usual, all changes are in the doc/ChangeLog file. See also the
README.UPDATING file for changes that might impact on some installations.
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The primary ftp server is in Cambridge, England. There is a list of mirrors in:

ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/Mirrors

The distribution files are signed with Philip Hazel's GPG key, which is
available on the ftp site and on a number of keyservers. The signature files
are in the same directory as the tarbundles. The MD5 hash codes for the
distribution files are:

187b6f4242f869288fb4562df44d9c29 exim-4.63.tar.gz
dde2d5f7106d51607409af94174db46c exim-4.63.tar.bz2

The distribution contains an ASCII copy of the 4.63 manual and other documents.
Other formats of the documentation are also available:

ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/exim-html-4.63.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/exim-pdf-4.63.tar.gz

ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/exim-texinfo-4.63.tar.gz

The .bz2 versions of these tarbundles are also available.

The HTML documentation contains the FAQ and configuration samples. These are
also available separately in HTML or txt format from the ftp site:

ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/FAQ-html.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/FAQ.txt.gz
ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/config.samples.tar.gz

Note that the FAQ is gradually being superseded by the wiki.

The ChangeLog for this, and several previous releases, is included in the
distribution. Individual change log files are also available on the ftp site,
the current one being:

ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/ChangeLogs/ChangeLog-4.63
ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/ChangeLogs/ChangeLog-4.63.gz

Brief documentation for new features is available in the NewStuff file in the
distribution. Individual NewStuff files are also available on the ftp site, the
current one being:

ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/ChangeLogs/NewStuff-4.63
ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/ChangeLogs/NewStuff-4.63.gz

The Exim Test Suite is available for use on other hosts:

Enjoy.
