Shibboleth 2.0.3 Released

Shibboleth, privacy and security aware mailing list manager version 2.0.3 has been released.

This is mainly a bugfix release. All lumberjack problems now resolved and it again is able to do the job -- rotate logs.

Also I started to fix documentation. And although it is still incomplete, but is accurate and at least doesn't tell about outdated things.

As for version number, it is really version 2. We started to work on the project back in 1996, and in 1998 it reached version 2.0a86. By that time it served for a real crowd of people, running simulatenously couple of dozens different mailing lists.

This year it was decided to release it under LGPL license and here it is. But I wasn't sure that the code is not broken and moreover it really was. It just refused to work under Perl 5.6, also couple other bugs appeared, but since I convinced that quality of code is in place, now there is no need to stick version zero on it. So, here it is -- Shibboleth version 2.

Shibboleth is available for download from SourceForge.
