159============================================================================
160OpenPAM Cinchona                                                2002-04-08
161
162 - ENHANCE: Improved documentation for several API functions.
163
164 - BUGFIX: Fix bug in pam_set_data() that would result in corruption
165   of the module data list.
166
167 - BUGFIX: Allocate the correct amount of memory for the environment
168   list in pam_putenv().
169
170 - ENHANCE: Change pam_get_authtok()'s prototype so the caller can
171   specify what token it wants.  Also introduce PAM_OLDAUTHTOK_PROMPT.
172
173 - BUGFIX: Plug memory leak in pam_get_user() / pam_get_authtok(), and
174   reduce differences between these very similar functions.
175
176 - ENHANCE: Check flags carefully in pam_authenticate() and
177   pam_chauthtok().
178
179 - BUGFIX: Fix bugs in portability code; libpam now builds on NetBSD.
180
181 - ENHANCE: In pam_get_authtok(), if PAM_OLDAUTHTOK is set, we're
182   asked for PAM_AUTHTOK, and we have to prompt the user, prompt her
183   twice and compare the responses.
184
185 - ENHANCE: Add openpam_{borrow,restore}_cred(), for temporarily
186   switching to user credentials.
187
188 - ENHANCE: Add openpam_free_data(), a generic cleanup function for
189   pam_set_data() consumers.
190============================================================================
191OpenPAM Centaury                                                2002-03-14
192
193 - BUGFIX: Add missing #include <string.h> to openpam_log.c.
194
195 - BUGFIX: s/PAM_REINITIALISE_CRED/PAM_REINITIALIZE_CRED/.  XSSO uses
196   the former, but Solaris and Linux-PAM use the latter.
197
198 - BUGFIX: The dynamic loader and the module cache contained a number
199   of bugs which would cause a segmentation fault if pam_start(3) was
200   called again after pam_end(3), as happens in login(1), xdm(1) etc.
201   after a failed login.
202
203 - BUGFIX: Refer to a module by the name used in the policy file, even
204   if the module that was actually loaded was versioned.
205
206 - ENHANCE: Suppress debugging logs, unless compiled with -DDEBUG.
207============================================================================
208OpenPAM Celandine                                               2002-03-05
209
210 - BUGFIX: PAM_TRY_AGAIN is a valid return value for pam_chauthtok().
211
212 - BUGFIX: Run passwd chain twice, first with the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK
213   flag set, then with the PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK flag set.
214
215 - BUGFIX: Failure of a "sufficient" module should not terminate the
216   passwd chain if the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK flag is set.
217
218 - BUGFIX: Clear PAM_AUTHTOK after running the service modules.
219
220 - ENHANCE: Prevent applications from specifying the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK
221   or PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK flags themselves.
222
223 - BUGFIX: openpam_set_option() did not support changing the value of
224   an existing option.
225
226 - ENHANCE: Add support for module versioning.  OpenPAM will prefer a
227   module with the same version number as the library itself to one
228   with no version number at all.
229============================================================================
230OpenPAM Cantaloupe                                              2002-02-22
231
232 - BUGFIX: The proper use of PAM_SYMBOL_ERR is to indicate an invalid
233   argument to pam_[gs]et_item(3), not to indicate dlsym(3) failures.
234
235 - ENHANCE: Add in-line documentation in most source files, and a Perl
236   script that generates mdoc code from that.
237
238 - BUGFIX: The environment list was not properly NULL-terminated.
239
240 - ENHANCE: Allow the PAM_AUTHTOK_PROMPT item to override the prompt
241   specified by the module.
242
243 - BUGFIX: PAM_NUM_ITEMS was set too low.  It has been moved to
244   pam_constants.h to avoid it going stale again.
245
246 - ENHANCE: Move all code related to static modules into a separate
247   file.
248
249 - ENHANCE: openpam_ttyconv() now masks most signals while prompting the
250   user, and supports setting a timeout (which defaults to off).
251
252 - BUGFIX: Some manual pages referenced XSSO even though they
253   documented OpenPAM-specific functions.
254
255 - ENHANCE: Added openpam_get_option() and openpam_set_option().
256
257 - ENHANCE: openpam_get_authtok() now respects the echo_pass,
258   try_first_pass, and use_first_pass options.
259============================================================================
260OpenPAM Caliopsis                                               2002-02-13
261
262Fixed a number of bugs in the previous release, including:
263  - a number of bugs in and related to pam_[gs]et_item(3)
264  - off-by-one bug in pam_start.c would trim last character off certain
265    configuration lines
266  - incorrect ordering of an array in openpam_load.c would cause service
267    module functions to get mixed up
268  - missing 'continue' in openpam_dispatch.c caused successes to be
269    counted as failures
270============================================================================
271OpenPAM Calamite                                                2002-02-09
272
273First (beta) release.
