The following updates were released yesterday:

     * milter-ahead/1.7
     * milter-sender/1.14
     * milter-spiff/1.12
     * LibSnert/1.64.904

Two VERY notable changes in libsnert that effects the milters, 
previously discussed or mentioned here are:

    !	smfAccessHost(), smfAccessMail(), smfAccessRcpt(): Disabled
	support for sendmail's untaggedd access.db entries. These have
	been deprecated by sendmail and should no longer be used. This
	reduces the access.db lookups for a slight performance gain.
	Use --enable-sendmail-tagless-records to enable at compile time.
	
    +	Added smdb-relay-ok option. When enabled, a right hand side
    	access.db value of RELAY will be treated the same as a white
    	list OK value, which is technical correct according to the
    	sendmail definition. However, some sites want to "filter before
    	relay" and so do not want to treat RELAY as a white list entry.
    	
The first change will mean that untagged sendmail access.db records will 
be ignored by DEFAULT, reducing lookups. However if you rely on this 
then remember to add the compile time option.

The second change will result in RELAY values being ignored unless 
+smdb-relay-ok is set. Some will like this, some will not I'm sure.

The milter-sender update is a critical update to resolve occasional seg. 
faults and highly recommended.
