    Default where can I find out what version of Spam assassin in included with each ZCS release?

    Can anyone please tell me if every release of ZCS (say 5.0.3 just out) includes the latest version of Spam Assassin, or is only every updated every major release?

    Is there anywhere that describes what version of spam assassin is included with every release as I cannt find it.

    Is it worth upgrading each minor release to keep on top of new spam techniques being used by spammers, or does this update automatically?

    thanks for the advice.

    BTW, I'm a 20 user network version of 5.0.1 in a UK SME.

    su - zimbra -c "libexec/sa-learn -V"

    For 5.0.3, it is:

    SpamAssassin version 3.2.4

    Which is the newest version.

    thanks, I'm on 3.2.3 with 5.01

    can anyone tell me if there is a stanard procedure to include the latest versino of spam assassin in with every minor release, or is it rather ad hoc?

    Not my dept but I'll wager timing depends on:
    A) If we want to wait and see if there's any security flaws that crop up before including.
    B) Other times we can't wait to get the next version in for improvements to protection ie: "to keep on top of new spam techniques being used by spammers".
    C) How many other things we're packing into a maintenance release (btw 5.0.3 has tons of new stuff) sometimes it's a straightforward process & other times we'll want to configure certain things.

    3.2.4 has been out since January with no huge issues last I checked issues.apache.org, where as 3.2.3 came out in August of last year. You'll occasionally see things like Bug 18145 - SpamAssassin 3.2.1 or Bug 14677 - Update ClamAV to 0.90 and SpamAssassin to 3.1.8 in bugzilla but some things have gotten kinda automatic to the point where we don't always file for that.

    2008-01-05: SpamAssassin 3.2.4 released
    2007-08-09: SpamAssassin 3.2.3 released
    2007-07-25: SpamAssassin 3.2.2 released
    2007-06-11: SpamAssassin 3.2.1 & 3.1.9 released
    2007-05-02: SpamAssassin 3.2.0 released
    2007-02-14: SpamAssassin 3.1.8 released
