ANNOUNCE Mailman 2.0.5

I've just released version 2.0.5 of Mailman, the GNU Mailing List
Manager.  Mailman is released under the GNU General Public License

This release fixes a problem with stale lock files that can occur
under certain situations when the user hits the `Stop' button on their
browser.  These stale lock files can cause mailing lists to be
inaccessible for long periods of time (until the stale lock file times
out or is manually removed).

Mailman 2.0.5 is being released as both a gzip'd source tarball and as
a patch file.

GNU Mailman is software to help manage electronic mail discussion
lists, much like Majordomo or Smartmail.  Mailman gives each mailing
list a unique web page and allows users to subscribe, unsubscribe, and
change their account options over the web.  Even the list manager can
administer his or her list entirely via the web.  Mailman has most of
the features that people want in a mailing list management system,
including built-in archiving, mail-to-news gateways, spam filters,
bounce detection, digest delivery, and so on.

Mailman is compatible with most web servers, web browsers, and mail
servers.  It runs on GNU/Linux and should run on any other Unix-like
operating system.  Mailman 2.0.5 requires Python 1.5.2 or newer.  To
install Mailman from source, you will need a C compiler.

For more information on Mailman, including links to file downloads,
please see the Mailman WWW page:

And its mirrors at:

[Only the SourceForge and sites are up-to-date at the moment,
I expect the site to be updated shortly.]

If you want to download just the 2.0.4 -> 2.0.5 patch, please see:

There are email lists (managed by Mailman, of course!) for both
Mailman users and developers.  See the web sites above for details.
