Announce: Haraka v2.8.5

I haven’t bothered posting about the earlier 2.8.x releases (beyond 2.8.0) because they have mostly fixed small bugs that we introduced in the 2.8.0 release. This is the first release to add significantly new features.

  • Changes
    • The connection object is now passed to get_plain_passwd. Older modules should continue to work as-is.
    • The reseed_rng plugin now just uses the Crypto module from core. Though it seems this plugin should be irrelevant with newer versions of node.js
  • New Features
    • Outbound mail now uses pooled connections, only sending a QUIT message if the connection has been idle for a while.
  • Improvements
    • Shut down and reload (via haraka -c <path> --graceful) is now graceful – allowing current connections to finish and plugins to clean up before ending.
  • Bug Fixes
    • Bind maxmind version to ignore API change (#1492)
    • Fix encodings when banners are used (#1477)
    • Various DKIM fixes (#1495)

Upgrading should be fairly transparent, especially for current 2.8.x users.

Happy Haraking!
