Summary of major changes since 3.1.8
------------------------------------

Changes to the core code:

 * new behavior for trusted_networks/internal_networks: the 127.* network is now always considered
trusted and internal, regardless of configuration.

 * bug 3109: short-circuiting of 'definite ham' or 'definite spam' messages based on individual
short-circuit rules using the 'shortcircuit' setting, by Dallas Engelken <dallase /at/
uribl.com>.

 * bug 5305: implement 'msa_networks', for ISPs to specify their Mail Submission Agents, and
extend network trust accordingly.

 * bug 4636: Add support for charset normalization, so rules can be written in UTF-8 to match
text in other charsets.

 * sa-compile: compilation of SpamAssassin rules into a fast parallel-matching DFA, implemented
in native code.

 * "tflags multiple": allow writing of rules that count multiple hits in a single message.

 * bug 4363: if a message uses CRLF for line endings, we should use it as well, otherwise
stay with LF as usual; important for Windows users.

 * bug 4515: content preview was omitting first paragraph when no Subject: header was present.

 * The third-party modules used by sa-update are now required by the SpamAssassin package,
instead of being optional.

 * Bug 5165: 'sa-update --checkonly' added to check for updates without applying them; thanks
to <anomie /at/ users.sourceforge.net>

 * Bugs 4606, 4609: Adjust MIME parsing limits for nested multipart/* and message/rfc822 MIME
parts.

 * bug 5295: add 'whitelist_auth', to whitelist addresses that send mail using sender-authorization
systems like SPF, Domain Keys, and DKIM

 * Removed dependency on Text::Wrap CPAN module.

 * Received header parsing updates/fixes/additions.

Spamc / spamd:

 * bug 4603: Mail::SpamAssassin::Spamd::Apache2 -- mod_perl2 module, implementing spamd as
a mod_perl module, contributed as a Google Summer of Code project by Radoslaw Zielinski.

 * bug 3991: spamd can now listen on UNIX domain, TCP, and SSL sockets simultaneously.  Command-line
semantics extended slightly, although fully backwards compatibly; add the --ssl-port switch
to allow TCP and SSL listening at the same time.

 * bug 3466: do Bayes expiration, if required, after results have been passed back to the
client from spamd; this helps avoid client timeouts.

 * more complete IPv6 support.

 * spamc: Add '-K' switch, to ping spamd.

 * spamc: add '-z' switch, which compresses mails to be scanned using zlib compression; very
useful for long-distance use of spamc over the internet.

 * bug 5296: spamc '--headers' switch, which scans messages and transmits back just rewritten
headers.  This is more bandwidth-efficient than the normal mode of scanning, but only works
for 'report_safe 0'.
 
 * Bump spamd's protocol version to 1.4, to reflect new HEADERS verb used for '--headers'.

Mail::SpamAssassin modules and API:

 * bug 4589: allow M::SA::Message to use IO::File objects to read in message (same as GLOB).

 * bug 4517: rule instrumentation plugin hooks, to measure performance, from John Gardiner
Myers <jgmyers /at/ proofpoint.com>.

 * add two features to core rule-parsing code; 1. optional behaviour to recurse through subdirs
looking for .cf/.pre's, to support rules compilers working on rulesrc dir.  2. call back into
invoking code on lint failure, so rule compiler can detect which rules exactly fail the lint
check.

 * bug 5206: detect duplicate rules, and silently merge them internally for greater efficiency.

 * bug 5243: add Plugin::register_method_priority() API, allowing plugins to control the relative
ordering of plugin callbacks relative to other plugins' implementations.

 * Reduced memory footprint.

Plugins:

 * bug 5236: Support Mail::SPF replacement for Mail::SPF::Query.

 * bug 5127: allow mimeheader :raw rules to match newlines and folded-header whitespace in
MIME header strings.

 * bug 4770: add ASN.pm plugin, contributed by Matthias Leisi <matthias at leisi.net>

 * bug 5271: move ImageInfo ruleset into 3.2.0 core rules, thanks to Dallas Engelken <dallase
/at/ uribl.com>.

 * VBounce ruleset and plugin: detect spurious bounce messages sent by broken mail systems
in response to spam or viruses.  (Based on Tim Jackson's "bogus-virus-warnings.cf" ruleset.)

 * DomainKeys/DKIM: Mail::DKIM is now preferred over Mail::DomainKeys, since the latter module
is no longer actively maintained, and Mail::DKIM can handle both DomainKeys and DKIM signatures.

 * DKIM: separate signature verification from fetching a policy: can save a DNS lookup for
each unverified message by setting score to 0 for all policy-related rules (DKIM_POLICY_SIGNALL,
DKIM_POLICY_SIGNSOME, and DKIM_POLICY_TESTING). (thanks to Mark Martinec)

 * DKIM: support testing flags in the public key, as well as in the policy record. (thanks
to Mark Martinec)

 * DKIM: skip fetching a policy (SSP) if a signature does verify, according to draft-allman-dkim-ssp-02
(thanks to Mark Martinec)

 * Move rule functionality and checking into separate Check plugin, allowing third parties
to implement alternative scanner core algorithms.

 * core EvalTests code moved into various plugins.

* Plus lots of miscellaneous bug fixes.
