The second beta version of sudo 1.8.10 is now available. The biggest
change in 1.8.10 is a new time stamp file format that uses the
monotonic clock where available.

Major changes between sudo 1.8.10b2 and 1.8.10b1:
* Sudo now uses inet_pton() for decoding IPv4 addresses. A
version is included for systems without it.
* If sudo was started in the background and needed to prompt for
a password, it was not possible to suspend it at the password
prompt. This now works properly.
Major changes between sudo 1.8.10b1 and 1.8.9:
* It is now possible to disable network interface probing in
sudo.conf by changing the value of the probe_interfaces
* When listing a user's privileges (sudo -l), the sudoers plugin
will now prompt for the user's password even if the targetpw,
rootpw or runaspw options are set.
* The sudoers plugin uses a new format for its time stamp files.
Each user now has a single file which may contain multiple records
when per-tty time stamps are in use (the default). The time
stamps use a monotonic timer where available and are once again
located in a directory under /var/run. The lecture status is
now stored separately from the time stamps in a different directory.
* sudo's -K option will now remove all of the user's time stamps,
not just the time stamp for the current terminal. The -k option
can be used to only disable time stamps for the current terminal.
