After a year of Postfix 2.2 snapshots it is a pleasure to announce
the first Postfix 2.2 stable Release Candidate.

This is identical to the upcoming stable Postfix 2.2.0 release,
modulo bug/typo fixes.  When all is well there will be an official
Postfix 2.2 release in a week.

Please give it a swing, or browse through the documentation which
is also on-line.

A preliminary announcement with summary of "the new stuff" is below
the signature.



and soon on mirror sites.


Quote from the draft announcement:

Main changes with Postfix version 2.2.0

This is a summary of the changes. These and more are detailed in
the RELEASE_NOTES document.

- TLS and IPv6 support are now built into Postfix, based on code
from third-party patches.

- SMTP client-side connection reuse. This can dramatically speed
up deliveries to high-volume destinations that have good and
non-responding mail servers.

- By default, message header address rewriting is now disabled for
SMTP mail from other systems.  Thus, spam from poorly written
software no longer looks like it came from a local user.

- When your machine does not have its own domain name, Postfix can
now replace your "home network" email address by your ISP account
in outgoing SMTP mail, while leaving your email address unchanged
when sending mail to someone on the local machine.

- Compatibility workarounds: you can now selectively turn off ESMTP
features such as AUTH or STARTTLS in the Postfix SMTP client or
server, without having to "dumb down" other mail deliveries, and
without having to use transport maps for outgoing mail.

- Remote SMTP client resource control (the anvil server).  This
allows you to limit the number of connections, or the number of
MAIL FROM and RCPT TO commands that an SMTP client can send per
unit time.

- Support for CDB, SDBM and NIS+ databases is now built into Postfix
(but the CDB and SDBM libraries are not).

- New SMTP access control features, and more.
