Subject: [exim-announce] Release candidate 4.93 RC1 published.

today we released 4.93 RC1.

Compared with RC0 it contains mainly minor fixes to improve the
"buildabilty" across different environments. Thanks to the reporters of
the build issues.

Please note: for automated downloads: The checksums and sizes are now in
files named 00-*.txt, having detached signatures in 00-*.txt.asc.

The rest you know from the recent announcement (only the tags and commit
ids changed.)

Currently we didn't declare a feature freeze yet. If you have any
contribution you'd like to see as part of the next release, feel free to
contact us.

If things go well, we expect the final release around end of November

You're strongly encouraged to download, build and test the release
candidate. Please be sure to read and understand the ChangeLog document,
because even with an unchanged runtime configuration Exim might change
its behaviour.

Besides fixing bugs and improving stability and performance we added a
bunch of new features (like router variables, ehlo transport event, JSON
lookups, and more).
