  - update to version 2.8.1
    when 0MQ (a.k.a. ZeroMQ) is used between Amavis components as an
    internal messaging protocol, make sure to replace all 0MQ-enabled
    Amavis components on upgrading amavisd, as the internal protocol
    has changed slightly, taking advantage of 0MQ multi-part messages
    for better performance. Affected programs are: amavis-services,
    amavisd-status, amavisd-snmp-subagent-zmq, and amavisd.
    NOTE: The Crossroads I/O project (libxs) ceased development on
      July 2012, to be replaced by nanomsg eventually by the same author.
      The 0MQ library (libzmq) is currently (2013) the best choice,
      the preferred library version is 3.2.2 or later along with
      the ZMQ::LibZMQ3 Perl interface module and ZMQ::Constants.
      The older version 2 of the library, along with an older perl
      module ZeroMQ, should be fine too, but lacks support for IPv6.
    amavisd is compatible with perl 5.18.0 and with SpamAssassin 3.4.0
    * new Redis storage for the "pen pals" feature;
    * improved IPv6 support;
    * support for p0f v3;
    * new macros ip_trace_all and ip_trace_public;
    * amavisd-status now shows a bar graph display
      of the number of active processes;
    * the timing report log entry can show CPU usage
      at log level 2 if a module Unix::Getrusage is available;
* Wed May 29 2013
  - Fix multiple bugs in systemd unit, should
    not be used and Wants must be used instead of requires in most
* Thu May 02 2013
  - use %defattr correctly to make /var/spool/amavis not worldreadable.
* Mon Feb 25 2013
  - Install amavisd.service accordingly (/usr/lib/systemd for 12.3
    and up or /lib/systemd for older versions).
* Wed Feb 06 2013
  - update to version 2.8.0
    * removed an old compatibility measure: default value of @banned_admin_maps
      was changed from:
      @banned_admin_maps = (\$banned_admin, \%virus_admin, \$virus_admin);
      to a more consistent:
      @banned_admin_maps = (\$banned_admin);
      The previous default value of @banned_admin_maps tried to maintain
      compatibility with versions before the setting was separated from
      its companion @virus_admin_maps. Now this compatibility is no longer
      considered necessary and contributes to some confusion, so it was dropped.
      See 2.4.0 and 2.2.1 release notes for previous changes to this setting.
    * quarantining to an mbox format file used to include a local time in an
      mbox separator line, which differs from RFC 4155 and common practices
      of using an UTC timestamp; a time zone of a timestamp in separator lines
      is now changed to UTC;
  - BUG FIXES 2.8.0
    * fixed initial evaluation of dynamic (i.e. per policy bank) values of
      $enable_dkim_verification, $enable_dkim_signing and $bypass_decode_parts
      across all declared policy banks; these policy bank entries may be scalars
      of references to such;
    * finely adjust a message size for de-stuffed dots according to a size
      definition in RFC 1870; avoids occasional message size mismatch when
      using an antispam interface module SpamdClient (implementing client-side
      of a spamc/spamd protocol);
    * updated LDAP.ldif to match LDAP.schema; provided by Quanah Gibson-Mount;
    * updated AMAVIS-MIB.txt and amavisd-snmp-subagent: changed type of
      SNMP variables *MsgsSize* in the group amavisStats 7 from Counter32
      to Counter64 for consistency with other *MsgsSize* variables in groups
      amavisStats 3 and amavisStats 9;
    * For monitoring and statistics gathering purposes a new set of utilities
      and service processes is available based on a message passing paradigm,
      using a 0MQ (a.k.a. ZMQ, ZeroMQ, or Crossroads I/O) library. This
      replaces a functionally similar set of utilities based on a shared
      BerkeleyDB database, with a benefit of avoiding lock contention
      altogether. This can bring sigificant speedups, most pronounced on
      a host with many busy amavisd child processes.
    * Applied numerous fine-grained optimizations based on a NYTProf profiler
      results. Optimizations include a reduction in a number of generated
      Perl opcodes and similar micro-optimizations. This accounts for a large
      amount of small changes in the code.
    * Our current statistics (Q4 2011) shows that 80 % of messages are below
      30.000 bytes, and 90 % of mail messages are below 100.000 bytes in
      size. As an optimization, messages below 100 KiB in size are now kept
      and processed in memory, including passing them more optimally to
      SpamAssassin 3.4.0. Some file activity is still there, but is much
      reduced. If $TEMPBASE also resides on an SSD disk (or a RAM disk),
      observed speedup between 2.7.2 and 2.8.0 was 3 to 8 percent on a
      busy host (with monitoring disabled, so as not to skew a measurement).
    * Use a module IO::Socket::IP if available, instead of dealing directly
      with low-level modules IO::Socket::INET and IO::Socket::INET6;
    * choose more appropriate defaults if running on an IPv6-only host
      (like connecting to ::1 instead of which may not exist);
    * amavisd-release now also supports connecting to amavisd over IPv6;
    * as a debugging aid it is now possible that a late event triggers full
      logging of earlier events that occurred during processing of a current
      mail message;
    * $enable_ldap setting is now dynamic, i.e. can be changed by a policy
      bank, which makes it possible to selectively disable LDAP lookups
      per policy bank;
    * optionally avoid persistent connections to SQL and LDAP servers;
    * it is now possible to disable calling an external file(1) utility
      but still have MIME parts decoding enabled;
    * added support in Amavis::SpamControl::ExtProg for an external spam scanner
    * added locking options to @spam_scanners entries, to be used with external
      scanners which need but do not implement locking of their resources
      by themselves;
    * added a global configuration setting $sa_userprefs_file, which is passed
      on to SpamAssassin as a 'userprefs_filename' parameter at initialization;
    * added a subroutine iso8601_weekday(), potentially useful with partitioning;
    * added several new macros available to logging and notification templates;
* Thu Dec 27 2012
  - update to version 2.7.2
    * a generated Received header field was missing the 'IPv6:' prefix
      in the TCP-info component of a 'by' subfield (as required by RFC 5321,
      section 4.1.3) when amavisd received a message over an IPv6 protocol;
      (btw, the TCP-info component of a 'from' subfield was correct);
    * changed data type of an SNMP variable LogRetries from C32 to C64
      for consistency with the MIB;
    * updated AV entry 'AVG Anti-Virus' to consider status 403 continuation
      lines when searching for a virus name; suggested by Ralf Hildebrandt;
    * reduce a log level to 5 on a log message:
      Amavis::IO::RW: Error flushing on close: ...
      to avoid an innocent but sinister-looking warning when a pipe
      to a virus scanner is broken and needs to be re-established;
      reported by Stefan Jakobs
    * updated an AV entry for 'F-Secure Linux Security' to version 9.14;
      options updated by Mika Ilmaranta, a patch by Tuomo Soini;
    * fix a Unix socket compatibility issue with Net::Server versions 2.000,
      2.001 and 2.002, where a method NS_unix_path no longer exists.
      This method was re-introduced for compatibility reasons in 2.003.

* Sat Sep 17 2011
  - Remove redundant tags/sections from specfile
* Tue Sep 13 2011
  - update to 2.7.0 With a synergy of four solutions, using amavisd-new
    in a pre-queue filtering setup became a sensible / better behaved solution:
    - old helper programs amavis.c and amavis-milter.c are no longer distributed
      with the package, along with the whole helper-progs subdirectory.
      As a milter client please use the more modern 'amavisd-milter' package by
      Petr Rehor, available at
    - the "smtpd_proxy_options=speed_adjust" Postfix option, available since
      Postfix 2.7.0 (20091101), improves decoupling between SMTP clients
      and a content filter in a proxy setup, reducing the number of content
      filtering processes needed for the same mail load. With this option
      turned on, a Postfix SMTP server receives the entire message before
      connecting to a before-queue content filter;
    - a master_deadline option and its API equivalent, available in SpamAssassin
      since version 3.3.0, allows for time limiting on lengthy rules checking,
      while still providing results when a time limit is exceeded; this makes
      it more suitable for time-sensitive setups like a pre-queue filtering setup;
    - reworked sub-task time limiting in amavisd, along with its counterpart
      solution in SpamAssassin, makes it better suited to a real-time nature
      of pre-queue filtering setups, where one has no control over how long
      SMTP clients are willing to wait at the data-end stage;
    - a re-purposed command line option 'reload' now does a warm restart,
      keeping sockets available to an MTA client at all times, thus reducing
      a chance that an MTA would even notice a content filter's warm restart.
* Tue Aug 30 2011
  - bnc#710289 - amavisd-new: fails rpmlint check non-ghost-in-var-run
* Tue Jul 12 2011
  - Enable clamav as integrated scanner
  - Enable Avira Antivir personal
* Tue May 24 2011
  - update to 2.6.6
    - amavisd-release was not sending a 'mail_file' attribute when a quarantined
    message was a non-compressed file in a single-level directory quarantine
  - quarantining to SQL was sporadically failing, reporting some unrelated
    random error (like 'not available' or 'OpenSSL error: header too long');
  - avoid a warning "_WARN: Use of uninitialized value in string eq at ...
    line 275." when an SQL-based white/black-listing is used;
  - wrap the sql clause  SET NAMES 'utf8'  so that only a warning at
    a log level 2 is issued if an SQL server does not understand the
    command (SQLite, old versions of MySQL) instead of aborting;
  - when a back-end MTA rejected a message, amavisd would send a non-delivery
    status notification, but also propagate the reject status back, which is
    wrong, only one or the other response would be appropriate. A fix also
    allows choosing either a D_REJECT, D_BOUNCE or D_DISCARD response for
    such a case, configurable through %final_destiny_by_ccat at a CC_MTA
    entry, defaulting to D_REJECT;
* Mon Feb 21 2011
  - bnc#663726 - amavisd-new: group of /var/spool/amavis conflicts with av programms
* Sun Feb 20 2011
  - unrar should not be required (non-free software now)
* Thu Jun 24 2010
  - bnc#614316 - amavisd-new: amavisd-new/README.SuSE does not match /etc/amavisd.conf
* Mon May 10 2010
  - bnc#600409 - amavisd not starting after system crash because of stale pid file
* Mon Jul 20 2009
  - bnc#521366 - Amavisd-new sends bounces when it isn't allowed to do so (backscatter!)
  - update to 2.6.4
  - amavisd failed to start when spam scanning was disabled either
    by @bypass_spam_checks_maps=(1) or by @spam_scanners=(), giving:
      Can't locate object method "new" via package "Amavis::SpamControl"
  - several decoders failed to propagate "Exceeded storage quota" exception,
    so the protection of AV scanners against mail bombs was ineffective;
  - milter usage (AM.PDP): verbatim header edits inserted a header body of "1"
    instead of the correct string, for example: "Authentication-Results: 1";
  - updated AV entry for BitDefender's bdscan to recognize tabs around a colon
    in its output; contributed by Steve;
  - fix parsing of a combined result from DSPAM (option --classify), as
    earlier versions of DSPAM did not include a signature with a combined
    result line;
  - when logging to SQL (pen pals), the msgs.message_id field always received
    a value '1' instead of a Message-Id, thus making pen pals less effective
    (only matching on sender/recipient pairs worked, not on message threads)
    and letting some bounces bypass a bounce killer; bug was introduced with
    version 2.6.2;
  - timer was not reset after a persistent failure to connect to a daemonized
    virus scanner, so a subsequent call to a backup scanner only had 10 seconds
    available before it was aborted, which was often too short for a command
    line backup scanner like clamscan;
  - if a virus scanner interface did not find a name of a virus in the output
    of a virus scanner (despite noticing infection), the infection was ignored;
  - added missing /m flags to regular expressions in AV entries
    (a bug is revealed with Perl 5.10.0; previous versions of Perl happened
    to work, unintentionally accepting a /m flag if added late during a regexp
  - $banned_namepath_re setting only worked globally, but was not usable in
    policy banks;
  - do_uncompress: signal run_command_copy() errors, instead of returning a
    status, thus allowing decompose_part() to detect 'Exceeded storage quota'
    or 'Maximum number of files exceeded', and flag mail as CC_UNCHECKED;
  - if $mailfrom_notify_admin was not specified in a configuration file but
    defaulted to an e-mail address in $hdrfrom_notify_admin, the following
    was reported (due to missing angle brackets) on an attempt to submit
    a notification:
      (!)SEND via SMTP: -> <>...
      501 5.1.7 Bad sender address syntax
      (!)FAILED to notify admin: 501 5.1.7 Failed, id=40690-23,
      from MTA([::1]:10027): 501 5.1.7 Bad sender address syntax
    Notification was not sent, the rest of the processing was unaffected;
  - fetch_modules: only suppress the "Can't locate ... in @INC" diagnostics
    if exactly the requested module is missing, but do show the error if some
    subordinate module is missing and preventing the requested module to be
  - do_unrar: recognize an information line with a '<->';
  - fixed a syntax error in LDAP.ldif;
  - fixed a bug in SpamdClient;
  - provide a true SNMP agent and a MIB, facilitating monitoring the health
    of a content filtering system, its performance and mail characteristics;
  - a new AV interface to SMTP-based antivirus scanners;
  - allow customizing SMTP-status response reason text for blocked messages;
  - prevent inserting fake copies of certain important mail header fields
    without breaking a DKIM signature;
  - added a configuration variable @client_ipaddr_policy, which maps smtp
    client's IP address lookup lists to a policy bank name. This allows for
    loading a policy bank based on a client IP address, and generalizes a
    formerly hard-wired mapping of @mynetworks_maps into 'MYNETS'.
  - large messages beyond $sa_mail_body_size_limit are now partially passed
    to SpamAssassin and other spam scanners for checking: a copy passed to
    a spam scanner is truncated near or slightly past the indicated limit.
    Large messages are no longer given an almost free passage through spam
  - supports passing an extra argument suppl_attrib to $spamassassin->parse,
    as recognized by SpamAssassin 3.3.0, passing a set of DKIM signature
    objects to a SpamAssassin's plugin DKIM, which saves having to do the
    same signature verification operation again within a plugin, and provides
    uncrippled signatures to SpamAssassin even when a large message is
    truncated by amavisd and only partially submitted to spam analysis;
  - add global variables $sa_configpath and $sa_siteconfigpath (undef by
    default), which are passed to SpamAssassin as options 'rules_filename'
    and 'site_rules_filename' during its initialization call; this makes
    it easier to run multiple instances of amavisd, each with a different
    SpamAssassin configuration, using the same amavisd configurations file
    by taking advantage of option -i;  suggested by Noah Baker;
  - report process resource usage at log level 2 by calling getrusage(1)
    if a perl module Unix::Getrusage is available;
