3.2.4 is a major bug-fix release, with a few minor new features.  Summary of
changes:

- bug 5599: allow load distribution of SA nameserver queries across all nameservers listed
in resolv.conf, using 'dns_options rotate'. thanks to Pawel Sasin <hannibal /at/ wp-sa.pl>

- bug 5673: 'ALL' header was including spurious extra spaces between header names and values.
 fix

- bug 5594: several major sa-compile fixes.  major increase in overall speed; cache results
between runs to further increase speed; and fix a danger of massive memory usage

- bug 5556: fix a variety of sa-compile portability issues, and support for 5.6.x perls

- bug 5514: make 'score set for a non-existent rule' a debug message, instead of a lint warning,
since it's a very frequent FAQ

- bug 5493: sa-compile fails to correctly deal with escaped backslashes.  fix

- bug 5672: remove DNS_FROM_SECURITYSAGE (DNSBL lookups against securitysage.com) due to unreliability

- bug 5476: update Bonded Sender (now Sender Score Certified) rules, and add a rule for their
strictly-confirmed-opt-in-required zone

- bug 5538: remove FORGED_MUA_AOL_FROM and FORGED_AOL_TAGS entirely; they're obsolete, given
the current capabilities of AOL mail user agents

- bug 5632: remove all completewhois.com DNSBL lookups, site seems to have disappeared without
warning

- bug 5715: allow for more than one sa-update MIRRORED.BY file host in DNS, for redundancy

- bug 5662: DKIM changes: recognize author signature and multiple signatures for whitelisting
(with Mail::DKIM 0.29); disable useless "check_dkim_signsome"; new eval rules "check_dkim_valid_author_sig"
and "check_dkim_valid" (an alias for a "check_dkim_verified" misnomer); new tags _DKIMIDENTITY_
and _DKIMDOMAIN_; updated terminology; verification speedup with Mail::DKIM 0.30 (or its pre-releases)

- bug 5696: sa-compile: cut regexp base strings at Unicode high codepoints, to avoid corruption
of patterns containing UTF-8

- bug 5637: bayes_file_mode is handled incorrectly when creating bayes.mutex, resulting in
incorrect permissions on that file; fix by Mihaly Barasz

- bug 5612: DB_File version 4.2.x has a bug that loops infinitely if files named '__db.{filename}'
are present; work around.  thanks to J. Nick Koston for the report and fix

- bug 5606: too-early init_learner() call causes root's user prefs file to be read when spamd
is started; this is inappropriate. fix

- bug 4179: if allow_user_rules is 1, user rules are not unique to each user; one user's user
rules can appear in later scans for other users that are run using the same spamd process.
fix

- bug 5680: ALL_TRUSTED can fire if a trusted MSA or webmail system receives the message from
an untrusted X-Originating-IP: header. fix

- bug 5626: in the 'spamassassin' script, install a signal handler for SIGHUP, SIGINT, SIGTERM
and SIGPIPE to ensure that temporary files are removed

- bug 5557: some temporary files are left not cleaned up on Windows; fix

- bug 5661: speed up Bayes SQL queries by allowing the use of indexes when expiring

- bug 5611: support 'spamd --nouser-config -u username', which setuids to 'username' but does
not read user_prefs files from anywhere

- bug 5665: spamd may fail to notice that a child has completed exiting, and keeps in the
child list in state 'K', eventually filling up the child list with 'ghost' children.  fix

- bug 5735: spamc should allow retry_sleep 0

- bug 5728: spamd: require -u with --sql-config or --ldap-config

- bug 5682: remove FH_HOST_ALMOST_IP, FH_HOST_EQ_D_D_D_D, due to false positives and redundancy
with RDNS_DYNAMIC; remove FH_HOST_EQ_D_D_D_DB due to no hits

- bug 5681: look up IP addresses found in 'X-Yahoo-Post-IP' and 'X-SenderIP' headers, too,
thanks to Martin Blapp

- Bug 5589: Refined async events handling and DNS lookup completions

- bug 5586: RDNS_NONE has false positives if the MTA doesn't put the hostname in the Received
header, like Communigate Pro. add an exception for this

- bug 5748: fix locale problem with use of external sort in sa-compile
