Release 0.8.12 of nss-pam-ldapd


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

A summary of the changes since 0.8.11:

  • fix a problem with the sasl_canonicalize option that would cause errors on non-SASL enabled systems
  • ensure that the file descriptors in the NSS and PAM modules for connecting to nslcd are closed on exec in the process
  • allow attribute options in attribute mapping expressions
  • show reconnect messages when failing over to a different LDAP server or re-establishing the connection to an LDAP server (the message accidentally got hidden in 0.7.4)
  • fix a problem with the pw_class attribute in FreeBSD (fixes 0.8.11)
  • more fixes and improvements for Solaris (running under nscd may still give problems though)
  • small improvement to PAM error logging
  • provide a pynslcd manual page if pynslcd is built
