I am happy to announce the first release candidate for the 2.1.14
release of the 2.1 stable maintenance branch of GNU Mailman.

Mailman 2.1.14rc1 is mainly a bug fix release, but it contains one
security fix as previously announced at
and one new feature.

This new feature controls the addition/replacement of the Sender:
header in outgoing mail. This allows a list owner to set
include_sender_header on the list's General Options page in the
admin GUI. The default for this setting is Yes which preserves the prior
behavior of removing any pre-existing Sender: and setting it to the
list's -bounces address. Setting this to No stops Mailman from adding or
modifying the Sender: at all.

Additionally, there is a new Defaults.py/mm_cfg.py setting
ALLOW_SENDER_OVERRIDES which defaults to Yes but which can be set to No
to remove the include_sender_header setting from General Options, and
thus preserve the prior behavior completely.

Python 2.4 is the minimum supported, but Python 2.5.or 2.6 is recommended.

See the changelog at <https://launchpad.net/mailman/2.1/2.1.14rc1> for
more details.

Mailman is free software for managing email mailing lists and
e-newsletters. Mailman is used for all the python.org and
SourceForge.net mailing lists, as well as at hundreds of other sites.
