The OpenDKIM project announces availability of OpenDKIM v2.0.1, now available
for download from SourceForge.

This release contains minor fixes to a few bugs reported since the v2.0.0
release. The main fixes among them are a build issue that occurs when
specifying "--with-openldap" while configuring the build, and a potential
crash bug encountered when reading keys from files on disk prior to signing.

Also of note is a change in the license terms being used by the project.
We have changed from the older four-clause BSD license to the more
practical three-clause BSD license.

The RELEASE_NOTES for this version:

2.0.1 2010/03/20
        Fix bug #SF2964376: Don't use dkim_getsighdr() internally during
                signing as it presumes signatures will fit within a bounded
                character array and sometimes (e.g. with extensive data in
                a "z=" tag) they don't, leading to signing failures on valid
                messages. Reported by James R. Marcus.
        Fix bug #SF2969700: Remember to NULL-terminate key data loaded from
                disk before using it.
        Don't use MAXHOSTNAMELEN as its value is unreliable.
        LIBOPENDKIM: Return an error from dkim_get_key_dns() if the
                query string is too big for a hostname buffer, rather than
                sending the truncated string to DNS anyway.
        LIBOPENDKIM: Ensure string termination in dkim_sig_getidentity()
                when calling dkim_qp_decode(). Patch from Stefan
                Schulze Frielinghaus.
        LIBOPENDKIM: In dkim_eom_sign(), don't change the handle's overall
                state before erroring out if the chunking state is invalid.
        BUILD: Fix bug #SF2969812: Don't install Lua sample files or man
                pages when --with-lua isn't specified. Patch from
                Kaspar Brand.
        BUILD: Fix bug #SF2965318: Don't define USE_LUA when LDAP is enabled.
                Problem noted by Guillaume Castagnino.
        LICENSE: Change from 4-clause BSD license to 3-clause BSD license.
