amavisd-new-2.6.6 release notes

This version is strictly a maintenance release, it incorporates bug fixes
backported from 2.7.0-pre* series and/or posted as patches to the mailing


- amavisd-release was not sending a 'mail_file' attribute when a quarantined
  message was a non-compressed file in a single-level directory quarantine
  (not SQL-based), causing a release failure;

- quarantining to SQL was sporadically failing, reporting some unrelated
  random error (like 'not available' or 'OpenSSL error: header too long');

- avoid a warning "_WARN: Use of uninitialized value in string eq at ...
  line 275." when an SQL-based white/black-listing is used;

- wrap the sql clause  SET NAMES 'utf8'  so that only a warning at
  a log level 2 is issued if an SQL server does not understand the
  command (SQLite, old versions of MySQL) instead of aborting;
