SimplePAMApps-0.58 release



Hi all,

The new release of SimplePAMApps is available.

SimplePAMApps package contains three utilities: login, su, and passwd
completely based on Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) library.

Since the previous release the following has been changed:
* utmp_{open,close}_session() were modified to fail gracefully.
* pam_get_user() abuse was removed from utmp_open_session.
* wtmp file locking was rewritten.
* unnecessary malloc()s were eliminated in utmp_{open,close}_session().
* more accurate struct utmp clearing was implemented. Glibc had introduced
  additional fields and could do it further.
* utmp search was rewritten to be more compatible with libc.
* protection against unexpected SIGPIPEs was implemented.
* TODO file was revived.

The most changes are in [uw]tmp update code.
The new code should be more wtmp problem tolerant.
