Release notes 

2.1.20 (31-Mar-2015)


    - A path traversal vulnerability has been discovered and fixed. This
      vulnerability is only exploitable by a local user on a Mailman server
      where the suggested Exim transport, the Postfix
      transport or some other programmatic MTA delivery not using aliases
      is employed. CVE-2015-2775 (LP: #1437145)

  New Features

    - There is a new Address Change sub-section in the web admin Membership
      Management section to allow a list admin to change a list member's
      address in one step rather than adding the new address, copying settings
      and deleting the old address. (LP: #266809)


    - The Russian translation has been updated by Danil Smirnov.

    - The Polish translation has been updated by Stefan Plewako.

  Bug fixes and other patches

    - A LookupError in SpamDetect on a message with RFC 2047 encoded headers
      in an unknown character set is fixed. (LP: #1427389)

    - Fixed a bug in CommandRunner that could process the second word of a
      body line as a command word and a case sensitivity in commands in
      Subject: with an Re: prefix. (LP: #1426829)

    - Fixed a bug in CommandRunner that threw an uncaught KeyError if
      the input to the list-request address contained a command word
      terminated by a period. (LP: #1426825)
