Sudo version 1.6.9p9 is now available.

Major changes since Sudo 1.6.9p8:

 o The ALL command in sudoers now implies SETENV permissions.

 o The command search is now performed using the target user's
   auxiliary group vector, not just the target's primary group.

 o When determining if the PAM prompt is the default "Password: ",
   compare the localized version if possible.

 o New passprompt_override option in sudoers to cause sudo's prompt
   to be used in all cases.  Also set when the -p flag is used.
