      Release Notes: Regular houskeeping updates (haven domains, spam sources, and identified spammers) were made. The bug when the spam bouncer caused a procmail crash on extremely large email messages was fixed. The default procmail.rc template has increased the LINEBUF to 8192; please incorporate this in your .procmailrc.

          Release Notes: Minor bugs were fixed, so now more spam can be caught. Regular houskeeping updates were done (free haven domains, small fry, etc.). Newly identified spammers were added. (Notably, the "Australian porn mafia" is now being caught.)

            Release Notes: Updates were applied to virus filters, spam sources, spam haven domains, small fry, and other basic filters. SURBLCHECK was obsoleted in favor of other variables that allow the selection of a finer-grained usage policy for the SURBL blocklist. Minor bugs were fixed.

              Release Notes: This release has the usual housekeeping (virus, spam haven, spam source, and pattern matching filters) update. It supports the new blocklist SURBL (enable with SURBLCHECK=yes) triggered by in-body spammers' URLs. Outdated (long time no hear) spammer blocking code is disabled by default for CPU conservation (it can be enabled via the configuration).

                Release Notes: A generic scoring system has been added for easier block/spam thresholds configuration. There are more whitelisting, blacklisting and anti-virus features. CPU usage optimizations have been added (very important for site installations). MH format target folders support has been added. More deobfuscation techniques in the code allow for more spam pattern detection. Many bugfixes and housekeeping updates have been made (spam haven domains/small fry lists).

                  Release Notes: In this version, scoring now weighs "hits" on different criteria, and adds those weights together to determine whether to treat email as definitely spam, as suspicious, or as non-spam. The OsiruSoft blacklists, including SPEWS, are down and have been disabled. The NJABL dial-up and open proxies blocklists have been enabled by default. Scanning for scripts and embedded IFRAME tags can now be disabled. The SoBig filter no longer catches email that was scanned by a legitimate virus scanner. The Small Fry and Haven Domains lists have also been updated.

                    Release Notes: New blocklists are now supported, and obsolete ones were removed. Some regular small fry/pattern matching recipes and other housekeeping updates were done. ZIP attachments are now blocked by default.
