    Release Notes: XHTML compatibility was added. WAI enhancements were made. As a result, the sethr and usetable config options are obsolete. New text has been added which hasn't been translated to all languages. Languages other than French, German, and Portugese will have some English text until someone does the translations. An "increment = -1" mode was added to enable automatic determination of whether to update or append. The default for spamprotect and spamprotect_id was changed to On. Email addresses are encoded in the text body of messages, in addition to using the _at_ encoding for the headers. Italian and Portugese support were added.

      Release Notes: Possible temp file race conditions were fixed in msg2archive.c and mbox2hypermail.c. A possible buffer overflow with uuencoded attachments filenames on systems with MAXPATHLEN or PATH_MAX less than 1024 was fixed. Conversion of file:// into href was disabled; it allowed anyone with localhost Web server access to read any file readable by the Web server. Buffer overflow checks were added where code security was unclear. Decoding of non-ascii headers was fixed, as was the append option (it was discarding some lines). Random core dumps with the files_by_thread option were fixed, and compile problems on SunOS and 64-bit Alpha were also fixed.

It adds an option to obfuscate message IDs so that spammers don't treat them as addresses, Greek language support, and a meta date tag.
