2008 Pizzigati Prize


I realize that I've been remiss in announcing this.  My apologies.

I have been awarded the 2008 Pizzigati Prize for Public Interest  
Computing for GNU Mailman.

http://www.pizzigatiprize.org/

I am deeply honored to win this prize because I believe very strongly  
in Mailman's role in helping people communicate and organize.  I want  
to thank all of you who have supported me and Mailman over the years,  
and I want to let you know that I am as excited as ever about where  
Mailman is going.  One of the most satisfying aspects of this project  
for me has been meeting you, the users, developers and contributors to  
Mailman, both online and face-to-face.

I'm looking forward to meeting the Pizzigati family and having some  
time to spend with them learning about Anthony's remarkable life,  
sadly cut too short.

So again, thank you all and I'm looking forward to the next 10 years  
of GNU Mailman!

Cheers,
-Barry

Updated message catalogs needed for Mailman 2.1.10


If you are a language champion or otherwise responsible for a Mailman
translation, please get the updated 2.1.10 message catalog for your
language to me as soon as possible. Mailman 2.1.10 has been in beta for
3 months now, and I have received very few updated translations.

I am planning to release what I hope will be the final beta release of
2.1.10 in a few days. This would be a release candidate rather than a
beta if I had more updated translations.

Thank you for your understanding.

Mailman 2.1.10b4 Released


I am happy to announce the next beta release of Mailman 2.1.10.

This is a security and bug fix release and it is highly recommended
that all sites upgrade to this version. Mailman 2.1.10 also adds support
for three new language translations, Galician, Hebrew and Slovak and a
few new features.

Mailman is free software for managing email mailing lists and e-
newsletters. Mailman is used for all the python.org and
SourceForge.net mailing lists, as well as at hundreds of other sites.

For more information, including download links, please see:
