Where may I download the version 2.3.3+ ??

I've installed the svn version wich is 2.3.3 but it doesn't ask me if I want to configure ispconfig with mailman support, neither in the expert nor in the simple configuration methods.

Also, I'd like to know how to configure mailman to work with ispconfig, since I can't find the way for this.

thanks a lot
