As at least one major distro isn't ready yet, we'll keep our initial schedule
and release the fixed versions on Dec, 25th, 10:00 UTC.

You'll find the versions in the usual places

    git://git.exim.org/exim.git         Tags exim-4_88, exim-4_87_1
    ftp://ftp.exim.org/pub/exim/exim4/          4.88
    ftp://ftp.exim.org/pub/exim/exim4/old/      4.87.1

If you have older versions running, you should update to at least 4.87.1.

We're sorry for the release date.

    Best regards from Dresden/Germany
    Viele Grüße aus Dresden
