The first beta version for sudo 1.8.25 is now available.  Sudo
1.8.25 is primarily a bug fix release.  I expect this to be a short
release cycle, focused on bug fixes.

Major changes between sudo 1.8.25 and 1.8.24:

 * Fixed a bug introduced in sudo 1.8.20 that broke formatting of
   I/O log timing file entries on systems without a C99-compatible
   snprintf() function.  Our replacement snprintf() doesn't support
   floating point so we can't use the "%f" format directive.

 * I/O log timing file entries now use a monotonic timer and include
   nanosecond precision.  A monotonic timer that does not increment
   while the system is sleeping is used where available.

 * Fixed a bug introduced in sudo 1.8.24 where sudoNotAfter in the LDAP
   backend was not being properly parsed.  Bug #845.

 * When sudo runs a command in a pseudo-tty, the slave device is
   now closed in the main process immediately after starting the
   monitor process.  This removes the need for an AIX-specific
   workaround that was added in sudo 1.8.24.

 * Added support for monotonic timers on HP-UX.

 * Fixed a bug displaying timeout values the "sudo -V" output.
   The value displayed was 3600 times the actual value.  Bug #846.

 * Fixed a build issue on AIX 7.1 BOS levels that include memset_s()
   and define rsize_t in string.h.  Bug #847.

 * The testsudoers utility now supports querying an LDIF-format
