It used to be 2.5, AFAIK.

That was fairly important, since older bzr versions were slower.
The last release is 2.5.1, a minor bug fix.
2.6 is still in beta (and seems likely to stay there).
I don't know where 2.6b2 would have come from.
Maybe staying with 2.5 would have been better.

(Someone at the bazaar mailing list might have a suggested fix if that
patch doesn't work.)

I believe the more standard way of doing things is the bzr-email plugin.

But there were some security concerns:

Maybe the concern is that someone with write access to a branch's
bazaar.conf could eg set post_commit_mailer to something malicious.
I don't know.
