[ Thanks to .coder for this link. ]

Postfix official release 2.0 brings you a long list of things that is detailed in the RELEASE_NOTES file--too long to include in the announcement.

Thanks to all the folks who helped building and/or testing, or who sent corrections for documentation.

Highlights: MIME support (including 8bit->7bit conversion and more accurate matching of MIME headers in message bodies), completely rewritten RBL client code, smarter handling of DNS lookup errors in UCE restrictions, virtual delivery agent without transport map for every domain, and a long list of other things that are meant to improve performance or functionality without compromising what already existed.

The official release will be changed only in order to fix problems.

New features are developed and tested in snapshot releases before they become part of the official release.

Simultaneously released is a 20021222 snapshot release that includes the experimental sender address verification, "sendmail -bv" (show what would happen if mail were delivered) and "sendmail v" (show what happened when mail was actually delivered). This and more will evolve into the next official Postfix release.
