Subject: [exim-announce] Exim 4.77 Release
Exim release 4.77 is now available from the primary ftp site:
* ftp://ftp.exim.org/pub/exim/exim4/exim-4.77.tar.gz
* ftp://ftp.exim.org/pub/exim/exim4/exim-4.77.tar.bz2

This release contains backwards incompatible changes. PLEASE read the
README.UPDATING file before upgrading. Per the recent Exim-Announce
notice, we have realised that the match_<type>{}{} expansion conditions
were too powerful and sometimes misused, leading to configurations with
security issues, such as SQL injection attacks.

So we have restricted their functionality. The README.UPDATING file
describes precisely what has changed and what the alternatives are, and
how to restore the old functionality, should you need to.

In brighter news: rate-limiting is now more powerful and users of GnuTLS
can now use TLS 1.1 and 1.2 for connections.

The primary ftp server is in Cambridge, England. There is a list of
mirrors in:
* http://www.exim.org/mirmon/ftp_mirrors.html

The master ftp server is ftp.exim.org.

The distribution files are signed with Phil Pennock's PGP key 0x3903637F
(uid pdp@???; signed by Nigel Metheringham's PGP key DDC03262).
This key should be available from all modern PGP keyservers. Please use
your own discretion in assessing what trust paths you might have to this
uid; the "Release verification" section of the experimental Release
Policy might be of assistance:
