No. Or "everything", depending on how you look at it. All of the code is
different. If you don't like hype, then I suppose you shouldn't read
further. Heck, I don't like hype, so I'll just tell you what it does right
now. But before I do that, I'll tell you that it doesn't yet run a list in
any useful manner because I haven't finished writing 'resend' and the
What list members see won't change much; the confirmation stuff is much
improved and members can do such things as alias other addresses that they
post from and set things like digest mode and such. The email interface
does MIME transparently.
List owners will see a bunch more functionality, but most of the important
things like the names of the config variables haven't changed. The
interface to set them has changed, though; you can set a single variable
without retrieving the entire file.
Power list owners will see huge changes in what they can do, too much to
detail here. They have fine control over what happens when any action is
Site owners gain remote administration; the global config is handled just
as any other list.
Installers should see the benefits of modern Perl, including simple Q&A
installation, but I haven't written this yet. If anyone knows how to do

Majordomo 2.0 is not released. It is not near release. It is not in beta.
It is not in alpha. It is not in any Greek letter, nor in any Egyptian
hieroglyphic. It is, sir, a non-program. If you intend to hold your
breath waiting for it, call your funeral director now.
Majordomo 2.0 is being worked on. The basic infrastructure is done and a
running implementation exists. The design is still evolving.
Discussion about Majordomo 2.0 is ongoing. You are getting sleepy. You
will join Majordomo-Workers if you want to discuss 2.0. You will read
Majordomo-Workers archives from http://www.hpc.uh.edu/majordomo-workers.
You will send all of your money to Majordomo Gurus and will hire them for
well paying consulting jobs. You will awake feeling rested and at peace.
