1============================================================================
2OpenPAM Cinnamon                                                2002-05-02
3
4 - ENHANCE: Add a null conversation function, openpam_nullconv().
5
6 - BUGFIX: Various markup bugs in the documentation.
7
8 - BUGFIX: Document <security/openpam.h>.
9
10 - BUGFIX: Duplicate expansion of openpam_log() macro arguments.
11
12 - ENHANCE: Restructure the policy-loading code and align our use of
13   the "other" policy with Solaris and Linux-PAM.
14
15 - ENHANCE: Log dlopen() and dlsym() failures.
16
17 - ENHANCE: In openpam_ttyconv(), emit a newline after error and info
18   messages unless the message contains one already.
19
20 - BUGFIX: In pam_vprompt(), initialize the response pointer to NULL
21   so we can detect whether the conversation function touched it.
22============================================================================
23OpenPAM Cineraria                                               2002-04-14
24
25 - BUGFIX: Fix confusion between token and prompt in
26   pam_get_authtok(3).
27
28 - ENHANCE: Improved documentation.
29
30 - ENHANCE: Adopt the same preprocessor tricks that were used in
31   FreeBSD's version of Linux-PAM to simplify static linking without
32   requiring dummy primitives.
33
34 - ENHANCE: Move the policy-loading code out of pam_start.c.
35
36 - BUGFIX: Fix typo in one of the versions of the openpam_log macro.
37
38 - ENHANCE: Add versioning macros.
39============================================================================
40OpenPAM Cinchona                                                2002-04-08
41
42 - ENHANCE: Improved documentation for several API functions.
43
44 - BUGFIX: Fix bug in pam_set_data() that would result in corruption
45   of the module data list.
46
47 - BUGFIX: Allocate the correct amount of memory for the environment
48   list in pam_putenv().
49
50 - ENHANCE: Change pam_get_authtok()'s prototype so the caller can
51   specify what token it wants.  Also introduce PAM_OLDAUTHTOK_PROMPT.
52
53 - BUGFIX: Plug memory leak in pam_get_user() / pam_get_authtok(), and
54   reduce differences between these very similar functions.
55
56 - ENHANCE: Check flags carefully in pam_authenticate() and
57   pam_chauthtok().
58
59 - BUGFIX: Fix bugs in portability code; libpam now builds on NetBSD.
60
61 - ENHANCE: In pam_get_authtok(), if PAM_OLDAUTHTOK is set, we're
62   asked for PAM_AUTHTOK, and we have to prompt the user, prompt her
63   twice and compare the responses.
64
65 - ENHANCE: Add openpam_{borrow,restore}_cred(), for temporarily
66   switching to user credentials.
67
68 - ENHANCE: Add openpam_free_data(), a generic cleanup function for
69   pam_set_data() consumers.
70============================================================================
71OpenPAM Centaury                                                2002-03-14
72
73 - BUGFIX: Add missing #include <string.h> to openpam_log.c.
74
75 - BUGFIX: s/PAM_REINITIALISE_CRED/PAM_REINITIALIZE_CRED/.  XSSO uses
76   the former, but Solaris and Linux-PAM use the latter.
77
78 - BUGFIX: The dynamic loader and the module cache contained a number
79   of bugs which would cause a segmentation fault if pam_start(3) was
80   called again after pam_end(3), as happens in login(1), xdm(1) etc.
81   after a failed login.
82
83 - BUGFIX: Refer to a module by the name used in the policy file, even
84   if the module that was actually loaded was versioned.
85
86 - ENHANCE: Suppress debugging logs, unless compiled with -DDEBUG.
87============================================================================
88OpenPAM Celandine                                               2002-03-05
89
90 - BUGFIX: PAM_TRY_AGAIN is a valid return value for pam_chauthtok().
91
92 - BUGFIX: Run passwd chain twice, first with the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK
93   flag set, then with the PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK flag set.
94
95 - BUGFIX: Failure of a "sufficient" module should not terminate the
96   passwd chain if the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK flag is set.
97
98 - BUGFIX: Clear PAM_AUTHTOK after running the service modules.
99
100 - ENHANCE: Prevent applications from specifying the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK
101   or PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK flags themselves.
102
103 - BUGFIX: openpam_set_option() did not support changing the value of
104   an existing option.
105
106 - ENHANCE: Add support for module versioning.  OpenPAM will prefer a
107   module with the same version number as the library itself to one
108   with no version number at all.
109============================================================================
110OpenPAM Cantaloupe                                              2002-02-22
111
112 - BUGFIX: The proper use of PAM_SYMBOL_ERR is to indicate an invalid
113   argument to pam_[gs]et_item(3), not to indicate dlsym(3) failures.
114
115 - ENHANCE: Add in-line documentation in most source files, and a Perl
116   script that generates mdoc code from that.
117
118 - BUGFIX: The environment list was not properly NULL-terminated.
119
120 - ENHANCE: Allow the PAM_AUTHTOK_PROMPT item to override the prompt
121   specified by the module.
122
123 - BUGFIX: PAM_NUM_ITEMS was set too low.  It has been moved to
124   pam_constants.h to avoid it going stale again.
125
126 - ENHANCE: Move all code related to static modules into a separate
127   file.
128
129 - ENHANCE: openpam_ttyconv() now masks most signals while prompting the
130   user, and supports setting a timeout (which defaults to off).
131
132 - BUGFIX: Some manual pages referenced XSSO even though they
133   documented OpenPAM-specific functions.
134
135 - ENHANCE: Added openpam_get_option() and openpam_set_option().
136
137 - ENHANCE: openpam_get_authtok() now respects the echo_pass,
138   try_first_pass, and use_first_pass options.
139============================================================================
140OpenPAM Caliopsis                                               2002-02-13
141
142Fixed a number of bugs in the previous release, including:
143  - a number of bugs in and related to pam_[gs]et_item(3)
144  - off-by-one bug in pam_start.c would trim last character off certain
145    configuration lines
146  - incorrect ordering of an array in openpam_load.c would cause service
147    module functions to get mixed up
148  - missing 'continue' in openpam_dispatch.c caused successes to be
149    counted as failures
150============================================================================
151OpenPAM Calamite                                                2002-02-09
152
153First (beta) release.
