133============================================================================

142   FreeBSD's version of Linux-PAM to simplify static linking without

150============================================================================
151OpenPAM Cinchona                                                2002-04-08
152
153 - ENHANCE: Improved documentation for several API functions.
154
155 - BUGFIX: Fix bug in pam_set_data() that would result in corruption
156   of the module data list.
157
158 - BUGFIX: Allocate the correct amount of memory for the environment
159   list in pam_putenv().
160
161 - ENHANCE: Change pam_get_authtok()'s prototype so the caller can
162   specify what token it wants.  Also introduce PAM_OLDAUTHTOK_PROMPT.
163
164 - BUGFIX: Plug memory leak in pam_get_user() / pam_get_authtok(), and
165   reduce differences between these very similar functions.
166
167 - ENHANCE: Check flags carefully in pam_authenticate() and
168   pam_chauthtok().
169
170 - BUGFIX: Fix bugs in portability code; libpam now builds on NetBSD.
171
172 - ENHANCE: In pam_get_authtok(), if PAM_OLDAUTHTOK is set, we're
173   asked for PAM_AUTHTOK, and we have to prompt the user, prompt her
174   twice and compare the responses.
175
176 - ENHANCE: Add openpam_{borrow,restore}_cred(), for temporarily
177   switching to user credentials.
178
179 - ENHANCE: Add openpam_free_data(), a generic cleanup function for
180   pam_set_data() consumers.
181============================================================================
182OpenPAM Centaury                                                2002-03-14
183
184 - BUGFIX: Add missing #include <string.h> to openpam_log.c.
185
186 - BUGFIX: s/PAM_REINITIALISE_CRED/PAM_REINITIALIZE_CRED/.  XSSO uses
187   the former, but Solaris and Linux-PAM use the latter.
188
189 - BUGFIX: The dynamic loader and the module cache contained a number
190   of bugs which would cause a segmentation fault if pam_start(3) was
191   called again after pam_end(3), as happens in login(1), xdm(1) etc.
192   after a failed login.
193
194 - BUGFIX: Refer to a module by the name used in the policy file, even
195   if the module that was actually loaded was versioned.
196
197 - ENHANCE: Suppress debugging logs, unless compiled with -DDEBUG.
198============================================================================
199OpenPAM Celandine                                               2002-03-05
200
201 - BUGFIX: PAM_TRY_AGAIN is a valid return value for pam_chauthtok().
202
203 - BUGFIX: Run passwd chain twice, first with the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK
204   flag set, then with the PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK flag set.
205
206 - BUGFIX: Failure of a "sufficient" module should not terminate the
207   passwd chain if the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK flag is set.
208
209 - BUGFIX: Clear PAM_AUTHTOK after running the service modules.
210
211 - ENHANCE: Prevent applications from specifying the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK
212   or PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK flags themselves.
213
214 - BUGFIX: openpam_set_option() did not support changing the value of
215   an existing option.
216
217 - ENHANCE: Add support for module versioning.  OpenPAM will prefer a
218   module with the same version number as the library itself to one
219   with no version number at all.
220============================================================================
221OpenPAM Cantaloupe                                              2002-02-22
222
223 - BUGFIX: The proper use of PAM_SYMBOL_ERR is to indicate an invalid
224   argument to pam_[gs]et_item(3), not to indicate dlsym(3) failures.
225
226 - ENHANCE: Add in-line documentation in most source files, and a Perl
227   script that generates mdoc code from that.
228
229 - BUGFIX: The environment list was not properly NULL-terminated.
230
231 - ENHANCE: Allow the PAM_AUTHTOK_PROMPT item to override the prompt
232   specified by the module.
233
234 - BUGFIX: PAM_NUM_ITEMS was set too low.  It has been moved to
235   pam_constants.h to avoid it going stale again.
236
237 - ENHANCE: Move all code related to static modules into a separate
238   file.
239
240 - ENHANCE: openpam_ttyconv() now masks most signals while prompting the
241   user, and supports setting a timeout (which defaults to off).
242
243 - BUGFIX: Some manual pages referenced XSSO even though they
244   documented OpenPAM-specific functions.
245
246 - ENHANCE: Added openpam_get_option() and openpam_set_option().
247
248 - ENHANCE: openpam_get_authtok() now respects the echo_pass,
249   try_first_pass, and use_first_pass options.
250============================================================================
251OpenPAM Caliopsis                                               2002-02-13
252
253Fixed a number of bugs in the previous release, including:
254  - a number of bugs in and related to pam_[gs]et_item(3)
255  - off-by-one bug in pam_start.c would trim last character off certain
256    configuration lines
257  - incorrect ordering of an array in openpam_load.c would cause service
258    module functions to get mixed up
259  - missing 'continue' in openpam_dispatch.c caused successes to be
260    counted as failures
261============================================================================
262OpenPAM Calamite                                                2002-02-09
263
