pam-mysql 0.6.1 and 0.7pre2 are released.

pam-mysql 0.6.1 and 0.7pre2 are finally released. I would thank all the people who supported the project through bug reports, suggestions, etc..

New features:

  • SHA1 hash support. (0.7pre2)

  • Added "use_first_pass" and "try_first_pass" options to conform with the PAM convensions. (0.7pre2)

  • Added "use_323_passwd" option allows you to use an encryption function used in the old MySQL versions (3.23.x). (0.6.1, 0.7pre2)


  • Changed column name handling to not escape meta characters to allow an expression in every XXXcolumn variable like "CONCAT(a, b, c)". (0.7pre2)

  • Fixed account management code that wouldn't work at all :-p (0.6.1, 0.7pre2)

  • Included pam_mysql.spec to the tarball by default. This enables you to make a RPM with the following oneliner. (0.6.1, 0.7pre2)

    rpmbuild -tb pam_mysql.tar.gz
  • Fixed compile failure that occurs with the old mysql_config (< 4.0.16). (0.6.1, 0.7pre2)

  • Fixed compile failure on Solaris when --with-openssl is specified to the configure script. (0.6.1, 0.7pre2)
