I'm happy to announce that Linux-PAM 1.0.91 is released.
This is the second beta on the way to Linux-PAM 1.1.
There are a lot of changes and new modules. For some, the behavior has changed
since Linux-PAM 1.0.x, pam_tally is now obsolete and pam_tally2 is the successor.
So please read the NEWS file and documentation carefully.
A list of changes:

* Fixed CVE-2009-0579 (minimum days limit on password change is ignored).
* Fix libpam internal config/argument parser
* Add optional file locking to pam_tally2
* Update translations
* pam_access improvements
* Changes in the behavior of the password stack. Results of PRELIM_CHECK
  are not used for the final run.

The tar archives can be found on kernel.org in /pub/linux/libs/pam/beta
