I'm still lagging behind reading emails. v2.1.0 will be released after I've finished that. RC5 is already stable and used in production, but I want to make sure that I haven't missed anything important that was reported previously. Most of the recent fixed bugs existed also in v2.0 series.
Changes since rc3:
* Temporary authentication failures sent to IMAP/POP3 clients
now includes the server's hostname and timestamp. This makes it
easier to find the error message from logs.
+ auth: Implemented support for Postfix's "TCP map" sockets for
user existence lookups.
+ auth: Idling auth worker processes are now stopped. This reduces
error messages about MySQL disconnections.
- director: With >2 directors ring syncing might have stalled during
director connect/disconnect, causing logins to fail.
- LMTP client/proxy: Fixed potential hanging when sending (big) mails
- Compressed mails with external attachments (dbox + SIS + zlib) failed
sometimes with bogus "cached message size wrong" errors.
(I skipped rc4 release, because I accidentally tagged it too early in hg.)
