Sudo version 1.6.9p17 is now available.

Major changes since Sudo 1.6.9p16:

 o The -i flag now implies resetting the environment, as it did in
   sudo versions prior to 1.6.9.

 o Fixed the configure test for dirfd() under Linux.

 o Fixed test for whether -lintl is required to link.

 o Changed how sudo handles the child process when sending mail.
   This fixes a problem on Linux with the mail_always option.

 o Fixed a problem with line continuation characters inside of
   quoted strings.
