Thank you for the feedback we got since RC0, especially to Andreas

As usual we ask *you* to do as much testing as possible and provide us
feedback. This covers build issues with unusual libraries, runtime
issues in unusual environments and any other kind of things that should
be fixed.

The Exim 4.95-RC1 is available

- as tarball:        https://ftp.exim.org/pub/exim/exim4/test
- directly from Git: https://git.exim.org
                     tag exim-4.95-RC1

The tarball checksums are signed using the same GPG key as I used to
sign this message (Key-ID: D0BFD6B9ECA5694A6F149DCEAF4CC676A6B6C142),
as the tag and tagged commit are.

This is the last chance for new features, as starting with RC2 (planned
around Aug 5th) we won't add any new features to the upcoming release.
If you have anything that should make it into the official release, and
is mature enough to be included in this phase, please contact us.

For changes since the previous stable version, please see the RC0
announcement: https://lists.exim.org/lurker/message/20210715.212328.6bec444b.en.html

@David Restall, @Thomas Noll: I'm not sure if we'll manage to fix the
source of the compiler warnings for this release, but we'll try.

    Best regards from Dresden/Germany
