Sudosh version 1.6.0 is now available.


(freshmeat is slow on file releases; sf is always current)

Major updates since version 1.4.8:

 o Sudosh now calls shells as if they were a login shell.  Sudosh
   automatically sets the environment variables LOGNAME, USER, TERM,
   SHELL and PATH.
 o Changes directory to user's HOME directory.
 o Changed the way the shell is executed.  Added a dash '-' before the
   arguement, i.e. -ksh  This allows the shell to execute as if it were
   a login shell.
 o Added a random string to the log files so that non-privileged users
   cannot delete their log files.
 o Removed tampering code because it was not portable.
 o General code cleanup.
