171   FreeBSD's version of Linux-PAM to simplify static linking without
172   requiring dummy primitives.
173

185   of the module data list.

187 - BUGFIX: Allocate the correct amount of memory for the environment
188   list in pam_putenv().
189

191   specify what token it wants.  Also introduce PAM_OLDAUTHTOK_PROMPT.
192

194   reduce differences between these very similar functions.
195
196 - ENHANCE: Check flags carefully in pam_authenticate() and

198

205 - ENHANCE: Add openpam_{borrow,restore}_cred(), for temporarily
206   switching to user credentials.
207
208 - ENHANCE: Add openpam_free_data(), a generic cleanup function for

210============================================================================
211OpenPAM Centaury                                                2002-03-14

213 - BUGFIX: Add missing #include <string.h> to openpam_log.c.
214
215 - BUGFIX: s/PAM_REINITIALISE_CRED/PAM_REINITIALIZE_CRED/.  XSSO uses
216   the former, but Solaris and Linux-PAM use the latter.
217
218 - BUGFIX: The dynamic loader and the module cache contained a number
219   of bugs which would cause a segmentation fault if pam_start(3) was
220   called again after pam_end(3), as happens in login(1), xdm(1) etc.
221   after a failed login.
222
223 - BUGFIX: Refer to a module by the name used in the policy file, even
224   if the module that was actually loaded was versioned.
225
226 - ENHANCE: Suppress debugging logs, unless compiled with -DDEBUG.
227============================================================================
228OpenPAM Celandine                                               2002-03-05
229
230 - BUGFIX: PAM_TRY_AGAIN is a valid return value for pam_chauthtok().
231
232 - BUGFIX: Run passwd chain twice, first with the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK
233   flag set, then with the PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK flag set.
234
235 - BUGFIX: Failure of a "sufficient" module should not terminate the
236   passwd chain if the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK flag is set.
237
238 - BUGFIX: Clear PAM_AUTHTOK after running the service modules.
239
240 - ENHANCE: Prevent applications from specifying the PAM_PRELIM_CHECK
241   or PAM_UPDATE_AUTHTOK flags themselves.
242
243 - BUGFIX: openpam_set_option() did not support changing the value of
244   an existing option.
245
246 - ENHANCE: Add support for module versioning.  OpenPAM will prefer a
247   module with the same version number as the library itself to one
248   with no version number at all.
249============================================================================
250OpenPAM Cantaloupe                                              2002-02-22
251
252 - BUGFIX: The proper use of PAM_SYMBOL_ERR is to indicate an invalid
253   argument to pam_[gs]et_item(3), not to indicate dlsym(3) failures.
254
255 - ENHANCE: Add in-line documentation in most source files, and a Perl
256   script that generates mdoc code from that.
257
258 - BUGFIX: The environment list was not properly NULL-terminated.
259
260 - ENHANCE: Allow the PAM_AUTHTOK_PROMPT item to override the prompt
261   specified by the module.
262
263 - BUGFIX: PAM_NUM_ITEMS was set too low.  It has been moved to
264   pam_constants.h to avoid it going stale again.
265
266 - ENHANCE: Move all code related to static modules into a separate
267   file.
268
269 - ENHANCE: openpam_ttyconv() now masks most signals while prompting the
270   user, and supports setting a timeout (which defaults to off).
271
272 - BUGFIX: Some manual pages referenced XSSO even though they
273   documented OpenPAM-specific functions.
274
275 - ENHANCE: Added openpam_get_option() and openpam_set_option().
276
277 - ENHANCE: openpam_get_authtok() now respects the echo_pass,
278   try_first_pass, and use_first_pass options.
279============================================================================
280OpenPAM Caliopsis                                               2002-02-13
281
282Fixed a number of bugs in the previous release, including:
283  - a number of bugs in and related to pam_[gs]et_item(3)
284  - off-by-one bug in pam_start.c would trim last character off certain
285    configuration lines
286  - incorrect ordering of an array in openpam_load.c would cause service
287    module functions to get mixed up
288  - missing 'continue' in openpam_dispatch.c caused successes to be
289    counted as failures
290============================================================================
291OpenPAM Calamite                                                2002-02-09
292
293First (beta) release.
