Sympa 6.2.59b.2 is the new beta version of Sympa 6.2.

This version introduces some improvements and fixes several bugs. See also "Significant changes" below.

About beta version

This version is a pre-release version of the next stable release. We expect feedback from users and developers. To know how to report bugs or improvements, see Contributing to Sympa.

  • Next stable release, 6.2.60, is planned to be released on Monday, 21st December 2020 (in UTC).

Translation catalog was updated because some messages were added mainly for new features.

  • Translations added on translation site before 19th December 00:00 UTC will be shipped with the stable release.

Significant changes

  • Several options at installation and run time to get rid of setuid wrappers were introduced. These changes may help avoiding potential risk by using setuid programs.
    • Now the setuid wrappers may be disabled, if installation process allows. Packagers are encouraged to provide configuration not using setuid wrappers as possible. See also #943 and related issues/PRs.
  • Personalization (formerly sometimes called "merge feature") is now restricted by default: It is enabled only when the message is posted via web interface, and is applied only on footer and header (if any).
    This behavior may be changed using personalization list parameter, however, listmasters are recommended to review whether wide range of conversion as previous versions is required. See also #1037.
