What’s New in Webmin 1.740

Webmin 1.740 is a bugfix release containing the following fixes to improve operation:

  • A new awesome theme by Ilia Rostovtsev, named “Authentic Theme”, was added.
  • Language translation updates: German, by Raymond Vetter; Norwegian, by Stein-Aksel Basma; and Catalan, by Jaume Badiella.
  • Support for editing DMARC DNS records was added. These are special TXT records used to define the response to SPF and DKIM violations.
  • Webmin can now use an SSL connection when sending mail. This is specially useful in connecting to remote mail servers that don’t allow unencrypted SMTP, like Gmail.

  • A button to reload the Postfix configuration was added.
