Subject: [exim-announce] Yet Another Release: 4.66
I have just put Exim release 4.66 on the primary ftp site:

ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/exim-4.66.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.csx.cam.ac.uk/pub/software/email/exim/exim4/exim-4.66.tar.bz2

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This release fixes two major bugs (related to the bug fixed in 4.65, but not
noticed in time). The documentation has been updated for this release, but I
have left in all the change marks since the 4.63 documentation because 4.64 and
4.65 have proved so short-lived.

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

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

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:

Note that the FAQ is being superseded by the wiki.
