You need to upgrade to 5.3 (or newer) before you can upgrade to 5.6 because of a queue migration only present in the former.
- The queue_suspend() and queue_policy() functions now return an array with the ID.
- The HELO.GetExtensions() function which was deprecated in version 5.4 has been removed.
- The GetRoute(), GetDSNHeader() and GetDSN() functions of the per-message end-of-DATA hook which was deprecated in version 5.1 has been removed.
- The text log format has changed slightly.
- The File.toFFIValue() function now returns C-compatible FILE pointer.
- Protobuf version compatibility is now 5.6 or greater.
The next release (5.7) will remove functions deprecated in 5.5 and earlier versions. In preparation, please resolve all deprecation warnings until then. Don't hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
