Exim4U version 2.0.1 was released today. Highlights of this release are
Simple Mailing List Added To Exim4U's Web Interface
Exim4U now includes a mailing list manager module called

the Exim4U web interface and is similar in functionality to
dedicated mailing list manager packages but with substantially
fewer features. The Simple Mailing List is not meant as a direct
replacement for dedicated mailing list manager packages since it
has a much smaller feature set, however, it offers a quick and
simple alternative for basic mailing lists especially for
installations where no other mailing list manager is installed.

Horde Pear Installer
Horde Version 4 is a significant upgrade over Horde version 3 with
much improved AJAX frontends for the various modules along with a
new installation process using the PEAR installer. The Horde PEAR
installer has several advantages including a much easier
installation/configuration process and installations may be
updated at will immediately after new Horde versions are released.
