I'd love to hear otherwise, but that's my general take away.


There have been patches over the summer.

Of cyrus-sasl? Not that I've seen. Do you mean cyrus-imapd perhaps? If you look at the "Contribute" Page, it is all about cyrus-imapd. If you look at the git log for the cyrus-sasl branch, there's been no real work at all for a few years:


Again, this is despite the fact that a variety of patches and at least one new database backend have been contributed back.

If it's dead, what replaces it?

Postfix has support for some alternative SASL implementation, but I've never looked at it in depth.
