	* MIMEDefang 2.72 RELEASED

2011-06-20  David F. Skoll <dfs at roaringpenguin.com>

	* MIMEDefang 2.72-BETA-2

	* The "make unstripped" target has disappeared.  Instead,
	use:  make INSTALL_STRIP_FLAG=''

	* The RPM_INSTALL_ROOT make variable has disappeared.  Instead,
	use the standard DESTDIR:  make install DESTDIR=/some/dir

	* In mimedefang.c, truncate overlong responses from the multiplexor.
	Also sanitize replies so "\r" doesn't get fed to smfi_setmlreply.

	* If a slave process replies with a very long reply, have the
	multiplexor consume (and discard) the excess input so the
	multiplexor-to-slave protocol does not become de-synchronized.

	* When mimedefang becomes a daemon, have it wait for a
	"go/no-go" message from the child before exiting.  This should
	eliminate race conditions whereby the MTA starts before the
	milter socket is present.

	* Revert change in 2.72-BETA-1 that passed client port number.
	It was a hack; we need a proper way to pass largish amounts of
	information to the filter and that will have to wait for a major
	reworking of MIMEDefang.

	* MIMEDefang 2.72-BETA-1

	* Avoid run-time errors from Unix::Syslog on some platforms.

	* Change md_syslog to log the Sendmail Queue-ID if it is

	* Pass SMTP client port number to filter_relay, filter_helo,
	filter_sender and filter_recipient.  Also make it available
	to filter_begin/filter/filter_end in $RelayPort global variable.

	* Remove references to ParanoidFiler.
