Subject: [exim-announce] Exim 4.70 Release
Exim release 4.70 is now available from the primary ftp site:
    * ftp://ftp.exim.org/pub/exim/exim4/exim-4.70.tar.gz
    * ftp://ftp.exim.org/pub/exim/exim4/exim-4.70.tar.bz2 


This release is a combination feature and bug fix release. 
The major new features are:-
    * Native DKIM support without an external library.
    * Experimental DCC support via dccifd (contributed by Wolfgang Breyha). 

Other changes:-
    * PCRE is no longer included with the Exim distribution. You will
      need a separate PCRE library (and matching headers) to compile
      Exim. You will need to change your Local/Makefile to support
      this. Most modern systems have a packaged PCRE library,
      alternatively PCRE can be found at http://www.pcre.org/
    * Experimental Yahoo! Domainkeys support dropped in favor of
      native DKIM support. 
    * The documentation has been updated and regenerated.

As usual, all changes are in the doc/ChangeLog file, which can also be
seen at


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