Fedora 11 Update: dovecot-1.2.8-2.fc11



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-11873
2009-11-20 04:27:26
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : dovecot
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.2.8
Release     : 2.fc11
URL         : http://www.dovecot.org/
Summary     : Secure imap and pop3 server
Description :
Dovecot is an IMAP server for Linux/UNIX-like systems, written with security
primarily in mind.  It also contains a small POP3 server.  It supports mail
in either of maildir or mbox formats.

The SQL drivers and authentication plug-ins are in their subpackages.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

- updated to dovecot 1.2.8  - add man pages  - virtual: When using a lot of
mailboxes, the virtual mailbox's header could have grown over 32 kB and caused
"out of memory" crashes. Also over 64 kB headers couldn't even be updated with
existing transaction log records. Added a new record type that gets used with
>=64 kB headers. Older Dovecot versions don't understand this header and will
log errors if they see it.  - FETCH BODYSTRUCTURE didn't return RFC 2231 "key*"
fields correctly  - IMAP: IDLE now sends "Still here" notifications to same
user's connections at the same time. This hopefully reduces power usage of some
mobile clients that use multiple IDLEing connections.  - IMAP: If
imap_capability is set, show it in the login banner.  - IMAP: Implemented
SORT=DISPLAY extension.  - Login process creation could have sometimes failed
with epoll_ctl() errors or without epoll probably some other strange things
could have happened.  - Maildir: Fixed some performance issues  - Maildir: Fixed
crash when using a lot of keywords.  - Several fixes to QRESYNC extension and
modseq handling  - mbox: Make sure failed saves get rolled back with NFS.  -
dbox: Several fixes.

- imap-login: If imap_capability is set, show it in the banner 
  instead of the default (#524485)
- sieve updated to 0.1.13 which brings these changes:
- Body extension: implemented proper handling of the :raw transform
  and added various new tests to the test suite. However, :content
  "multipart" and :content "message/rfc822" are still not working.
- Fixed race condition occuring when multiple instances are saving the
  same binary (patch by Timo Sirainen).
- Body extension: don't give SKIP_BODY_BLOCK flag to message parser,
  we want the body!
- Fixed bugs in multiscript support; subsequent keep actions were not
  always merged correctly and implicit side effects were not always
  handled correctly.
- Fixed a segfault bug in the sieve-test tool occuring when compile
  fails.
- Fixed segfault bug in action procesing. It was triggered while
  merging side effects in duplicate actions.
- Fixed bug in the Sieve plugin that caused it to try to stat() a NULL
  path, yielding a 'Bad address' error.
* Fri Oct  9 2009 Michal Hlavinka <mhlavink redhat com> - 1:1.2.6-2
- fix init script for case when no action was specified
* Tue Oct  6 2009 Michal Hlavinka <mhlavink redhat com> - 1:1.2.6-1
- dovecot updated to 1.2.6
- Added authtest utility for doing passdb and userdb lookups.
- login: ssl_security string now also shows the used compression.
- quota: Don't crash with non-Maildir++ quota backend.
- imap proxy: Fixed crashing with some specific password characters.
- fixed broken dovecot --exec-mail.
- Avoid assert-crashing when two processes try to create index at the
  same time.
* Fri Sep 18 2009 Michal Hlavinka <mhlavink redhat com> - 1:1.2.5-1
- updated to dovecot 1.2.5
- Authentication: DIGEST-MD5 and RPA mechanisms no longer require
  user's login realm to be listed in auth_realms. It only made
  configuration more difficult without really providing extra security.
- zlib plugin: Don't allow clients to save compressed data directly.
  This prevents users from exploiting (most of the) potential security
  holes in zlib/bzlib.
- fix index file handling that could have caused an assert-crash
- IMAP: Fixes to QRESYNC extension.
- deliver: Don't send rejects to any messages that have Auto-Submitted
  header. This avoids emails loops.

- updated: dovecot 1.2.4, managesieve 0.11.9, sieve 0.1.12
- fixed a crash in index file handling
- fixed a crash in saving messages where message contained a CR
  character that wasn't followed by LF

  against date values in header fields and the current date at
  the time of script evaluation
- managesieve: reintroduced ability to abort SASL with "*" response
* Mon Aug 10 2009 Michal Hlavinka <mhlavink redhat com> - 1:1.2.3-1

  already exists in the root dir.

  was accessed, even if nothing changed.
