A new version of dkim-milter is now available for download from
This release contains a number of minor fixes including a bug in header
selection during signing. This only meant some headers that should be
signed could be skipped under certain circumstances. It didn't interfere
This release also introduces a couple of new "for future release"
experimental code ideas, including the draft "Vouch By Reference"
reputation system proposed by the Domain Assurance Council. Domain-level
reputation is the next major step after DKIM is deployed and this is the
current front-runner in making that a reality.
The formal release notes entry:
Don't start if you're in signing mode and no selector was chosen
on the command line or in the configuration file.
Don't start if the version of OpenSSL used to compile libdkim
is not the same as the one used to compile the filter.
Print the version of OpenSSL in use when "-V" is used on the command
Add _FFR_VBR, enabling optional support for the Vouch By Reference
domain reputation proposal.
Add _FFR_BODY_LENGTHS: Add "BodyLengths" configuration file option
which adds the "l=" parameter when signing messages so
re-mailers (e.g. MLMs) which append text to the message won't
interfere with successful verification.
Fix bug #SF1689101: Fix a minor error in argv processing when
_FFR_OMIT_HEADERS was in use.
LIBDKIM: Change DKIM_SIGN_DEFAULT to point to "rsa-sha256" if
LIBDKIM: Add dkim_ssl_version().
LIBDKIM: Fix bug #SF1681632: Fix a bug in header selection when
signing. Messages verified just fine, but some headers
could accidentally be omitted during signing. From a patch
for bug #SF1541490 for dk-milter, reported by Mark Martinec;
essentially the same bug existed in libdkim.
