Release 0.8.11 of nss-pam-ldapd


This is an update for the 0.8 series that includes a few bug fixes and new features. This should be a reasonably stable and well tested release.

A summary of the changes since 0.8.10:

  • add a pam_password_prohibit_message option to deny password changes (thanks to Ted Cheng)
  • add a sasl_canonicalize option to allow disabling of hostname canonicalisation in OpenLDAP
  • have the nslcd daemon load the nslcd user's supplementary groups to have more flexibility with assigning group permissions
  • fix logic error when falling back to getting ranged attribute values for possibly binary attributes (thanks scan-build)
  • fix a problem when storing a negative hit in the dn2uid cache (thanks scan-build)
  • use poll() instead of select() for checking file descriptor activity to also correctly work if more than FD_SETSIZE files are already open (thanks Adrien Urban)
  • small portability improvements
  • improve support for using Netscape LDAP libraries
  • improvements and fixes to the Solaris NSS code
  • grow all search filter buffers to 4096 bytes
  • some improvements to the pynslcd implementation
  • add an LDIF version of the ldapns.schema file
