8.11.2/8.11.2   2000/12/29
        Prevent a segmentation fault when trying to set a class in
                address test mode due to a negative array index.  Audit
                other array indexing.  This bug is not believed to be
                exploitable.  Noted by Michal Zalewski of the "Internet for
                Schools" project (IdS).
        Add an FFR (for future release) to drop privileges when using
                address test mode.  This will be turned on in 8.12. It can
                be enabled by compiling with:
                APPENDDEF(`conf_sendmail_ENVDEF', `-D_FFR_TESTMODE_DROP_PRIVS')
                in your devtools/Site/site.config.m4 file.  Suggested by
                Michal Zalewski of the "Internet for Schools" project (IdS).
        Fix potential problem with Cyrus-SASL security layer which may have
                caused I/O errors, especially for mechanism DIGEST-MD5.
        When QueueSortOrder was set to host, sendmail might not read
                enough of the queue file to determine the host, making the
                sort sub-optimal.  Problem noted by Jeff Earickson of
                Colby College.
        Don't issue DSNs for addresses which use the NOTIFY parameter (per
                RFC 1891) but don't have FAILURE as value.
        Initialize Cyrus-SASL library before the SMTP daemon is started.
                This implies that every change to SASL related files requires
                a restart of the daemon, e.g., Sendmail.conf, new SASL
                mechanisms (in form of shared libraries).
        Properly set the STARTTLS related macros during a queue run for
                a cached connection.  Bug reported by Michael Kellen of
                NxNetworks, Inc.
        Log the server name in relay= for ruleset tls_server instead of the
                client name.
        Include original length of bad field/header when reporting
                MaxMimeHeaderLength problems.  Requested by Ulrich Windl of
                the Universitat Regensburg.
        Fix delivery to set-user-ID files that are expanded from aliases in
                DeliveryMode queue.  Problem noted by Ric Anderson of the
                University of Arizona.
        Fix LDAP map -m (match only) flag.  Problem noted by Jeff Giuliano
                of Collective Technologies.
        Avoid using a negative argument for sleep() calls when delaying answers
                to EXPN/VRFY commands on systems which respond very slowly.
                Problem noted by Mikolaj J. Habryn of Optus Internet
                Engineering.
        Make sure the F=u flag is set in the default prog mailer
                definition.  Problem noted by Kari Hurtta of the Finnish
                Meteorological Institute.
        Fix IPv6 check for unspecified addresses.  Patch from
                Jun-ichiro itojun Hagino of the KAME Project.
        Fix return values for IRIX nsd map.  From Kari Hurtta of the Finnish
                Meteorological Institute.
        Fix parsing of DaemonPortOptions and ClientPortOptions.  Read all
                of the parameters to find Family= setting before trying to
                interpret Addr= and Port=.  Problem noted by Valdis
                Kletnieks of Virginia Tech.
        When delivering to a file directly from an alias, do not call
                initgroups(); instead use the DefaultUser group information.
                Problem noted by Marc Schaefer of ALPHANET NF.
        RunAsUser now overrides the ownership of the control socket, if
                created.  Otherwise, sendmail can not remove it upon
                close.  Problem noted by Werner Wiethege.
        Fix ConnectionRateThrottle counting as the option is the number of
                overall connections, not the number of connections per
                socket.  A future version may change this to per socket
                counting.
        Portability:
                Clean up libsmdb so it functions properly on platforms
                        where sizeof(u_int32_t) != sizeof(size_t).  Problem
                        noted by Rein Tollevik of Basefarm AS.
                Fix man page formatting for compatibility with Solaris'
                        whatis.  From Stephen Gildea of InTouch Systems, Inc.
                UnixWare 7 includes snprintf() support.  From Larry
                        Rosenman.
                IPv6 changes for platforms using KAME.  Patch from
                        Jun-ichiro itojun Hagino of the KAME Project.
                Avoid a typedef compile conflict with Berkeley DB 3.X and
                        Solaris 2.5 or earlier.  Problem noted by Bob Hughes
                        of Pacific Access.
                Add preliminary support for AIX 5.  Contributed by
                        Valdis Kletnieks of Virginia Tech.
                Solaris 9 load average support from Andrew Tucker of Sun
                        Microsystems.
        CONFIG: Reject addresses of the form a!b if FEATURE(`nouucp', `r')
                is used.  Problem noted by Phil Homewood of Asia Online,
                patch from Neil Rickert of Northern Illinois University.
        CONFIG: Change the default DNS based blacklist server for
                FEATURE(`dnsbl') to blackholes.mail-abuse.org.
        CONFIG: Deal correctly with the 'C' flag in {daemon_flags}, i.e.,
                implicitly assume canonical host names.
        CONFIG: Deal with "::" in IPv6 addresses for access_db.  Based on
                patch by Motonori Nakamura of Kyoto University.
        CONFIG: New OSTYPE(`aix5') contributed by Valdis Kletnieks of
                Virginia Tech.
        CONFIG: Pass the illegal header form <list:;> through untouched
                instead of making it worse.  Problem noted by Motonori
                Nakamura of Kyoto University.
        CONTRIB: Added buildvirtuser (see `perldoc contrib/buildvirtuser`).
        CONTRIB: qtool.pl: An empty queue is not an error.  Problem noted
                by Jan Krueger of digitalanswers communications consulting
                gmbh.
        CONTRIB: domainmap.m4: Handle domains with '-' in them.  From Mark
                Roth of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
        DEVTOOLS: Change the internal devtools OS, REL, and ARCH m4
                variables into bldOS, bldREL, and bldARCH to prevent
                namespace collisions.  Problem noted by Motonori Nakamura
                of Kyoto University.
        RMAIL: Undo the 8.11.1 change to use -G when calling sendmail.  It
                causes some changes in behavior and may break rmail for
                installations where sendmail is actually a wrapper to
                another MTA.  The change will re-appear in a future
                version.
        SMRSH: Use the vendor supplied directory on HPUX 10.X, HPUX 11.X,
                and SunOS 5.8.  Requested by Jeff A. Earickson of Colby
                College and John Beck of Sun Microsystems.
        VACATION: Fix pattern matching for addresses to ignore.
        VACATION: Don't reply to addresses of the form owner-*
                or *-owner.
        New Files:
                cf/ostype/aix5.m4
                contrib/buildvirtuser
                devtools/OS/AIX.5.0
