amavisd-new-2.7.2 release notes


- a generated Received header field was missing the 'IPv6:' prefix
  in the TCP-info component of a 'by' subfield (as required by RFC 5321,
  section 4.1.3) when amavisd received a message over an IPv6 protocol;
  (btw, the TCP-info component of a 'from' subfield was correct);

- changed data type of a SNMP variable LogRetries from C32 to C64
  for consistency with the MIB;

- updated AV entry 'AVG Anti-Virus' to consider status-403 continuation
  lines when searching for a virus name; suggested by Ralf Hildebrandt;


- reduce a log level to 5 on a log message:
    Amavis::IO::RW: Error flushing on close: ...
  to avoid an innocent but sinister-looking warning when a pipe
  to a virus scanner is broken and needs to be re-established;
  reported by Stefan Jakobs;

- updated an AV entry for 'F-Secure Linux Security' to version 9.14;
  options updated by Mika Ilmaranta, a patch by Tuomo Soini;

- fix a Unix socket compatibility issue with Net::Server versions 2.000,
  2.001 and 2.002, where a method NS_unix_path no longer exists.
  This method was re-introduced for compatibility reasons in 2.003.
