[leafnode-list] [Leafnode-announce] Leafnode 1.9.33.rel released (STABLE)


                 leafnode 1.9.33.rel has been released.

This update is recommended, it contains bug, compatiblity and
portability fixes and minor contributed features deemed safe even for a
stable release. The posting behaviour was adjusted to be compatible with
that of leafnode 1.9.22 and older, to address the "my postings never get
posted and just lie around in the newsq" issue, the fix for the
"incomplete articles might be posted" bug is still intact.

* 1.9.33, 2003-02-03

o Fix client hang when an article had suffered corruption and its Message-ID
  could not be retrieved. Also consider the article broken and unlink it.
o Compatibility: leafnode 1.9.23 to 1.9.32 have used the u+x flag in out.going
  to mark an article "complete". This was incompatible with versions 1.9.22
  and before. It has been changed to u+r, which improves compatibility, posts
  are no longer stuck in out.going, and even older versions won't read
  incomplete posts.
o Switching delaybody off no longer makes bodies of article headers retrieved
  before the switch inaccessible. (affects leafnode, fetchnews)
o Pseudo article display was fixed for newsgroups that were once there but
  that have expired without their article pointers reset in the groupinfo file.
o Fix local article number extraction again, along the lines suggested by
  Fumiaki Miura. This bug marked the wrong article for download if a header
  of the structure "Xref: my.ser.ver abcabc:20 abc:10" was in the article
