Sure, we will try to do this, or add more clear comments to the updates.
Often the terse comments are for features that are not of general
interest. But we will try and make sure the comments are more detailed.
Just having a quick look back at recent changes that might be of general
interest. (most of these will be in the next beta in a week or two)
7.2b-14 g_safe_warning which alerts users when they login from a new
location. Useful to alert customers if their account has been hacked.
7.2b-10 Added setting(s) to allow spf to over-rule friends more cleanly
so messages from friends that fail spf are not considered friends
matches (since the friend address is probably faked): Use g_spf_nofriend
"true" g_friends_obey_spf "true"
7.2b-9 Added domain setting suspend_incoming to temporarily block
incoming email to a domain while moving it etc...
7.2b-7 Added g_imap_search_text if enabled this speeds up some imap
search commands by using the indexes, in some cases it will not get all
possible matches as the indexes do not contain all headers.
7.2b-6 Added sha2 support to nwauth, add command line switch -sha2 in
g_authent_process setting to enable. Also requires nwauth 4.3a, sha2 is
considered more secure for password hashing as it requires significantly
more cpu to apply dictionary cracking methods. This isn't a critical
thing you need to worry about!
7.2b-5 Added g_country_login and related settings to block all logins
from outside your geographic region, e.g. "us,nz,au" ideal for smaller
systems where most users are local. Use g_country_allow to list users
that are travelling...
7.2b-2 Split g_ssl_ciphers,g_ssl_ciphers_web and
g_ssl_disable,g_ssl_disable_web to adjust protocol and ciphers for web
separately, this can be necessary if your security experts want a crazy
subset of ciphers or protocols for web access, but that set won't work
for older mail servers and email clients.
