The first release candidate of Sudo version 1.7.1 is now available.
If no major problems are found, the GA of 1.7.1 will be release
in about a week.
Changes from Sudo 1.7.1b5:
o Fixes a visudo memory leak in the alias checks.
Changes from Sudo 1.7.1b4:
o The unused alias checks in visudo now handle the case of an
alias referring to another alias.
Changes from Sudo 1.7.1b3:
o Fixed an LDAP-related compilation problem when the ldap library
supports ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s() but no SASL headers exist.
Changes from Sudo 1.7.1b2:
o Added support for /etc/netsvc.conf on AIX
o Fixed a few K&R compilation issues.
Changes from Sudo 1.7.0:
o Fixed a crash when sudoers has the wrong user/mode.
o Fixed parsing of comments that start with a dash.
o Added pwfeedback option to provide visual feedback when
the user is entering a password.
o Added fast_glob option to use fnmatch() for globbing. When this
is enabled, sudo will not check the file system when expanding
wild cards. This is faster but a side effect is that relative
paths with wild card will no longer work.
o Merged in BSM audit support from Christian S.J. Peron.
o Fixed a bug in the included version of glob() that broken
wild card matching on systems other than BSD and Linux.
o Added %h escape (short form of hostname) to the #include directive.
o The -k flag may now be specified along with a command, causing the
user's timestamp file to be ignored.
o Fixed a crash when a PAM module's session action prompts for user
o Added support for Tivoli-based LDAP START_TLS as seen in AIX.
o Sudo now replaces the putenv, setenv and unsetenv functions with its
own that operate on its own copy of the environment.
