Sudo version 1.6.9p5 is now available.

Major changes since Sudo 1.6.9p4:

 o Fixed a bug in the IP address matching introduced by the IPV6 merge.

 o For "visudo -f file" we now use the permissions of the original
   file and not the hard-coded sudoers owner/group/mode.  This makes
   it possible to use visudo with a revision control system.

 o Fixed sudoedit when used on a non-existent file.

 o Regenerated configure using autoconf 2.6.1 and libtool 1.5.24.

 o Groups and netgroups are now valid in an LDAP sudoRunas statement.
