      Postfix legacy release 2.3.12 fixes problems with Milter support,
      and provides a workaround for loopback TCP performance problems.

      Postfix snapshot 20070731 and earlier snapshots address the same
      problems. Postfix 2.4.5 will be released soon, because of a late
      typo introduced in the 2.4.4 code.

      This is a summary of changes; for details please see HISTORY below.

      MILTER bugfix:
      When a milter replied with ACCEPT at or before the first RCPT
      command, the cleanup server would apply the non_smtpd_milters
      setting as if the message was a local submission. Problem
      reported by Jukka Salmi.

      MILTER robustness:
      Assorted cleanups to harden error handling in the Postfix Milter
      client.

      Loopback TCP performance workaround:
      Some systems exhibited poor SMTP and Milter performance with
      loopback (127.0.0.1) connections. Problem reported by Mark
      Martinec.

      =====================
      20070722

      Cleanup: Milter client error handling, so that the (Postfix
      SMTP server's Milter client) does not get out of sync with
      Milter applications after the (cleanup server's Milter client)
      encounters some non-recoverable problem. Files: milter/milter8.c,
      smtpd/smtpd.c. Back-port from Postfix 2.4/2.5.

      (127.0.0.1) connections. Problem reported by Mark Martinec.
      Files: util/vstream_tweak.c, milter/milter8.c, smtp/smtp_connect.c,

      Bugfix: when a milter replied with ACCEPT at or before the
      first RCPT command, the cleanup server would apply the
      non_smtpd_milters setting as if the message was a local
      submission. Problem reported by Jukka Salmi. Also, the cleanup
      server would get out of sync with the milter when a milter
      replied with ACCEPT at the DATA command. Files:
      cleanup/cleanup_envelope.c, smtpd/smtpd.c, milter/milters.c.
      Back-port from Postfix 2.4/2.5.
