Major changes between sudo 1.8.27 and 1.8.26
* On HP-UX, sudo will now update the utmps file when running a command
in a pseudo-tty. Previously, only the utmp and utmpx files were
* Nanosecond precision file time stamps are now supported in HP-UX.
* Fixes and clarifications to the sudo plugin documentation.
* The sudo manuals no longer require extensive post-processing to
hide system-specific features. Conditionals in the roff source
are now used instead. This fixes corruption of the sudo manual
on systems without BSD login classes. Bug #861.
* If an I/O logging plugin is configured but the plugin does not
actually log any I/O, sudo will no longer force the command to
be run in a pseudo-tty.
* The fix for bug #843 in sudo 1.8.24 was incomplete. If the
user's password was expired or needed to be updated, but no sudo
password was required, the PAM handle was freed too early,
resulting in a failure when processing PAM session modules.
* In visudo, it is now possible to specify the path to sudoers
without using the -f option. Bug #864.
* Fixed a bug introduced in sudo 1.8.22 where the utmp (or utmpx)
file would not be updated when a command was run in a pseudo-tty.
* Sudo now sets the silent flag when opening the PAM session except
when running a shell via "sudo -s" or "sudo -i". This prevents
the pam_lastlog module from printing the last login information
for each sudo command. Bug #867.
* Fixed the default AIX hard resource limit for the maximum number
of files a user may have open. If no hard limit for "nofiles"
is explicitly set in /etc/security/limits, the default should
be "unlimited". Previously, the default hard limit was 8196.
