Binary package hint: bogofilter

Bogofilter 1.2.0 misses critical bugfixes from the new upstream release
1.2.1 which impair performance to the point that bogofilter 1.2.0 is
incapable of detecting any useful information from message bodies. These
were already reported to Ubuntu earlier, see below.

Please upgrade to the upstream 1.2.1 release, more than half a year old,
before Lucid release.

Upstream changelog:

1.2.1   2009-08-01 (released)


	* Update configure to use "host" rather than "target", to match the
	  newer autotools cross-build semantics. Untested.
	  Developers changing the build system and users who build from SVN
	  will now need automake 1.9 and autoconf 2.60.


	* Fix Christian Frommeyer's MIME decoding bug, Ubuntu/Launchpad Bug
	  #320829. As a side effect, also fixes misattribution of MIME bodies
	  as MIME headers with mime: tag.  Original bug report:

	  Before this fix, bogofilter did not properly MIME-decode the first
	  line in a body. This was especially bad with Christian's samples
	  where the whole body was only one long base64 line.


        * Removed two scripts that are auto-built.

        * Added test case for Stephen Davies' Q-P EOL problem (see


	* Fixed EOL problem in quoted_printable text. Problem reported by
	  Stephen Davies and identified by Pavel Kankovsky.
