Sympa 6.2.48 released

I missed this release but it's only a little over a month old, so its still news.

Sympa 6.2.48 is the newest stable version of Sympa 6.2.

Sympa is an electronic mailing list manager. It is used to automate list management functions such as subscription, moderation and management of archives. Sympa also manages sending of messages to the lists, and makes it possible to reduce the load on the system. Provided that you have enough memory on your system, Sympa is especially well adapted for big lists. For a list with 20 000 subscribers, it takes 5 minutes to send a message to 90% of subscribers, of course considering that the network is available. Check out the full list of features.

From the release notices

Significant changes

  • Data sources: Codebase has entirely been rewritten. It will work a bit faster with less memory usage in exchange for some changes on behaviors.
  • Perl: From now on, Perl earlier than 5.10.1 will never be supported.

The full Change Log is here.

RPM Packages are in Fedora and EPEL, and Sympa is in the FreeBSD ports tree. Otherwise you can just install from source tar ball.

Also, a new Logo for the project has been proposed. Check it out too.
