Subject: Apache SpamAssassin 3.4.0 release candidate 2 - invitation to
To: users at spamassassin.apache.org
This is not a formal announcement, but an invitation to a broader
users community to try the release candidate of the coming release
of Apache SpamAssassin version 3.4.0 .
Preliminary release notes and a link to the package was published
The "call for votes" in the message only applies to project members,
but feedback from wider audience of testers is very much welcome.
The Mail-SpamAssassin-3.4.0-rc2 package is available at:
Rules may be downloaded from the same location, but this is rarely
necessary. A normal procedure is to install the software (the usual
CPAN installation procedure should suffice, but this very much depends
on a platform of choice), then run a 'sa-update' command, which will
find and download appropriate rules to a version-specific directory.
Except for some minor details, the 3.4.0 is compatible with 3.3.2 in
its API and in database formats (but uses a separate directory to store
rules), so it should be possible to switch back and forth between both
versions in a test environment, if a need arises. Still, due diligence is
appropriate: have your backups ready before starting to play with
the new software, especially in a production environment.
Nevertheless, this version has been in production use at several sites
for months, so it should be at least as good as 3.3.2 .
It is expected that the final release will follow shortly, so a quick
response would be appreciated.
