Subject: [exim-announce] Release candidate 4.93 RC6 published.
Today we released 4.93 RC6.

Compared with the previous RC it contains a single significant change:
For *BSD systems a sendfile related bug is fixed.

Check the attachment of this message for a short git log of the changes
since the previous RC.

The following text is almost unchanged since the previous RC, except for
RC numbers and Git links.

Feature freeze: We won't add new features for this release. If things go
well, we expect the final release on the weekend Dec 7/8th. But there is
still one single issue to be resolved.

The checksums and sizes are in files named 00-*.txt, having detached
signatures in 00-*.txt.asc.

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.

Note: Some runtime config defaults changed (regarding DANE, DNSSec,
TLS) since 4.92.

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).
