Sudo version 1.6.2 release candidate 1 is now available from:
Summary of changes from sudo 1.6.1:
o Better behavior for -l and -v flags in conjunction with NOPASSWD.
Behavior is configurable via the new "verifypw" and "listpw"
o Fixed compilation problems with K&R compilers.
o During netgroup host matching, match against the short version of
the hostname as well as the long one (if they are different).
o Terminate passwd reading on '\r' in addition to '\n'.
o Visudo used to loop endlessly if a user entered ^D at the whatnow
prompt. EOF is now treaded as 'x' (exit w/o saving changes).
o The 'shell_noargs' runtime option has been added back (it now
o Systems that return RLIM_INFINITY for RLIMIT_NOFILE (like AIX)
would loop for a very loing time during sudo startup. A value of
RLIM_INFINITY is now ignored (getdtablesize/sysconf is used instead).
o Locking in visudo was broken. We now lock the sudoers file, not the
sudoers temp file, which should be safe.
I plan to release 1.6.2 early next week unless there are show stoppers.
