INN 2.6.2

(As usual, Julien finished this release a bit back, and then I got busy with life stuff and hadn't gotten the announcement out. And yes, I copied and pasted this parenthetical from the last announcement. Tradition!)

In the feature department, this release adds a new syntaxchecks parameter to inn.conf that can be used to disable message ID syntax checking, better header sanitization support in mailpost, support for TLS 1.3, and support for using GnuPG v1 (which is unfortunately important for control messages and NoCeM on Usenet still).

In the bug-fix department, this release always uses the OVDB helper server with OVDB to avoid various stability problems, fixes a header checking bug in inews that was incorrectly rejecting some long headers, fixes some control command reporting in the daily status report, and hopefully fixes buffindexed on systems with a native page size larger than 16KB.

As always, thanks to Julien √ČLIE for preparing this release and doing most of the maintenance work on INN!

You can get the latest version from the official ISC download page (although that download link still points to INN 2.6.1 as of this writing) or from my personal INN pages. The latter also has links to the full changelog and the other INN documentation.
