I have uploaded Exim 4.77 RC1 to:

Most pressingly, we have made a backwards-incompatible change to the
match_* expansion conditions, for which I've sent mail to exim-announce
with the gory details; we believe that a number of folks have created
Exim configurations which are subject to SQL injection attacks. Those
using GnuTLS may start sending with TLS 1.2 or TLS 1.1 with this
release, where previously you were limited to just TLS 1.0 and SSL 3.0.

ChangeLog can be found at:

The files are signed with the PGP key 0x3903637F, which has a uid
"Phil Pennock <pdp@???>". Please use your own discretion in
assessing what trust paths you might have to this uid.

I am abandoning the use of wiki pages for collecting feedback on Release
Candidates, to determine which OSes shall be first-class supported, as
roughly nobody was updating the wiki pages. We shall have to find
another way to balance RC testing vs OS support.

Checksums below. Detached PGP signatures in .asc files.

Please report issues in reply to this email, on exim-users.

We have provided mitigation options for the misconfigurations, but it is
easier to deal with some scenarios with this release's inlisti{}{}
condition, so we'd like to push that through fairly rapidly, to assist
folks in fixing their configurations. Barring major incident, at the
latest I expect to release 4.77 on Monday October 10th.

Thank you for your testing and feedback,
-Phil Pennock, pp The Exim Maintainers.
