Debian

At last Debian 10 "buster" will be released on 2019-07-06! It will provide sympa package with Sympa 6.2.40.

FreeBSD

Ports/packages provides mail/sympa with Sympa 6.2.42.

RPM

People running either Fedora or RHEL (and clones) can find ready to use RPMs for sympa in a COPR sympa repository. People willing to also get sympa beta releases should additionally use this COPR sympa-beta repository.

  • Note that unofficial repository on Sympa-JA.org is still available. Administrators who have used it and are not planning to install beta do not need to change their repository settings.

Support for RHEL8/CentOS8 is yet to be decided.

Dropping support for Perl 5.8.x

Currently, Sympa officially supports Perl 5.8.1 and better. However, older versions of Perl have number of flaws while distributors will no longer close them. That's why we decided to drop support for older versions gradually.

Since Sympa 6.2.46, the next stable release, Perl 5.10.1 and later will be supported. Nevertheless, administrators are recommended to use as recent version of Perl as they can.

If you have any idea, please comment on the issue #620.

New Sympa logo

New Sympa logo is proposed. If you have any idea, please comment on the issue #665.
