Subject: [exim-announce] Exim 4.80 Release
Exim release 4.80 is now available from the primary ftp site:
* ftp://ftp.exim.org/pub/exim/exim4/exim-4.80.tar.gz
* ftp://ftp.exim.org/pub/exim/exim4/exim-4.80.tar.bz2

This release contains backwards incompatible changes. PLEASE read the
README.UPDATING file before upgrading. These changes affect OpenSSL,
GnuTLS and LDAP.

OpenSSL default options have changed to be more secure, including
disabling of SSLv2 by default (and adding support for TLSv1.1 and
TLSv1.2 if using OpenSSL 1.0.1 or newer); GnuTLS has been updated to use
a new API and stop honouring some options starting gnutls_*; users of
LDAP can now distinguish "comma in data" from "multi-valued attribute".
There are more details, covering more changes, in README.UPDATING.

We now enable accept_8bitmime by default, as the Exim maintainers agree
with Dan Bernstein about the best way to deal with the 8BITMIME

Building Exim should now be easier, with pkg-config support. We now
support use of the TLS Server Name Indication (SNI) extension, both as
client and as server, so Exim can present different TLS identities to
different clients on the same port. We have new authentication drivers,
for gsasl and heimdal_gssapi. The ${eval...} expansion operator now
supports 64-bit arithmetic (on 64-bit platforms). Exim can now be
started with support for inetd "wait-mode", which should be a precursor
to socket activation support for your OS's init system.

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.
