### SECURITY BUGFIXES
- Fetchnews did not detect timeouts while it was downloading an article
header, which malicious upstream servers could exploit to mount
a denial of service attack against the fetchnews client. See
leafnode-SA-2005-02.txt. CVE Name: CAN-2005-1911
- Bugfix sed expression in makesubst script. (Reported by Jeff Zacharias.)
- texpire now tags the message.id expired count with "message.id" rather
than "total:" to avoid misleading the user who assumes that "total:"
would have to be the sum of the group counts. See also the FAQ change
below. SourceForge bug #1215453.
- When debugmode and verbose mode are set, leafnode programs now print a
warning to stdout that the user should check syslog.conf and the
syslog output rather than the screen print for debugging and sleeps for
- Add FAQ entry to explain discrepancies between texpire group counts
and message.id expired articles counts.
- Add FAQ entry to explain influence of Gnus' gnus-read-active-file
setting on lost subscriptions, and extend stop fetchnews from
unsubscribing FAQ. Debian bug #307685.
- Drop FAQ entry on license issues as some parts of leafnode are in fact
- Drop FAQ entry on why old articles aren't posted, obsolete since
- INSTALL and INSTALL_de have been polished.
- Add a hint that syslog.conf must be edited to config.example.
- leafnode(8) mentions that LIST ACTIVE keeps an existing subscription
