Synopsis :

Description :

- PostfixAdmin 3.0.2 :

- SECURITY: don't allow to delete protected aliases
(CVE-2017-5930, boo#1024211)

- fix VacationHandler for PostgreSQL

- AliasHandler: restrict mailbox subquery to allowed and
specified domains to improve performance on setups with
lots of mailboxes

- allow switching between dovecot:* password schemes while
still accepting passwords hashed using the previous
dovecot:* scheme

- FetchmailHandler: use a valid date as default for 'date'

- fix date formatting in non-english languages when using
PostgreSQL

- PostfixAdmin 3.0 :

- add sqlite backend option

- add configurable smtp helo (CONF['smtp_client'])

- language update: tw, cs, de

- fix escaping in gen_show_status() (could be used to DOS
list-virtual by creating a mail address with special
chars)

- list.tpl: base edit/editactive/delete links in list.tpl
on $RAW_item to avoid double escaping, and fix some
corner cases

- fix db_quota_text() for postgresql (concat() vs. ||)

- change default date for 'created' and 'updated' columns
from 0000-00-00 (which causes problems with MySQL strict
mode) to 2000-01-01

- allow punicode even in TLDs

- update Smarty to 3.1.29

- add checks to login.php and cli to ensure database
layout is up to date
