As promised, sooner than I expected myself, here is some more information on the update of Courier Auth to version 0.59.2. It wasa minor upgrade where the following items where fixed:

  • Fix pedantic compilation warnings
  • Implement SSL-encrypted MySQL connections
  • Update documentation to Docbook XML V4.4

Installing or upgrading is done by just following the install instructions and restarting the Auth daemon. Please don’t forget to do:

chmod o+x /usr/local/var/spool/authdaemon
