Linux-PAM 1.0.90 aka 1.1-Beta1 released



Hello,

I'm happy to announce that Linux-PAM 1.0.90 is released.
This is the first beta on the way to Linux-PAM 1.1.

There are a lot of changes and new modules. For some, the
behavior has changed, pam_tally is now obsolete and pam_tally2
is the successor. So please read the NEWS file and documentation
carefully.

A list of changes:

* Supply hostname of the machine to netgroup match call in pam_access
* Make pam_namespace to work safe on child directories of parent directories
  owned by users
* Redefine LOCAL keyword of pam_access configuration file
* Add support for try_first_pass and use_first_pass to pam_cracklib
* Print informative messages for rejected login and add silent and
  no_log_info options to pam_tally
* Add support for passing PAM_AUTHTOK to stdin of helpers from pam_exec
* New password quality tests in pam_cracklib
* New options for pam_lastlog to show last failed login attempt and
  to disable lastlog update
* New pam_pwhistory module to store last used passwords
* New pam_tally2 module similar to pam_tally with wordsize independent
  tally data format
* Make libpam not log missing module if its type is prepended with '-'
* New pam_timestamp module for authentication based on recent successful
  login.
* Add blowfish support to pam_unix.
* Add support for user specific environment file to pam_env.
* Add pam_get_authtok to libpam as Linux-PAM extension.
* Rename type option of pam_cracklib to authtok_type.
