A new beta version of sudo 1.7.3 is now available.
Major changes between sudo 1.7.2p7 and 1.7.3b3:
* Support for logging I/O for the command being run.
For more information, see the documentation for the "log_input"
and "log_output" Defaults options in the sudoers manual. Also
see the sudoreplay manual for how to replay I/O log sessions.
* The use_pty sudoers option can be used to force a command to be
run in a pseudo-pty, even when I/O logging is not enabled.
* On some systems, sudo can now detect when a user has logged out
and back in again when tty-based time stamps are in use. Supported
systems include Solaris systems with the devices file system,
Mac OS X, and Linux systems with the devpts filesystem (pseudo-ttys
* Sudo's SELinux support should now function correctly when running
commands as a non-root user and when one of stdin, stdout or stderr
is not a terminal.
* Sudo now uses mbr_check_membership() on systems that support it
to determine group membership. Currently, only Darwin (Mac OS X)
* The passwd_timeout and timestamp_timeout options may now be
specified as floating point numbers for more granular timeout
