* Make sure created databases are byte-for-byte reproducible
This fixes two longstanding bugs: (1) when allocating database file
header blocks, the unused memory is filled with zeroes; (2) when expanding
a mmapped memory area, the added extent is filled with zeroes.
* Fix build with --enable-gdbm-export
* Make gdbm_error global variable thread safe.
* Fix possible segmentation violation in gdbm_setopt
* Fix handling of group headers in --help output.
GNU dbm is a library of database functions that use extendible hashing and works similar to the standard UNIX dbm functions. These routines are provided to a programmer needing to create and manipulate a hashed database.
GINT provides a framework for easy integration of Guile into arbitrary software projects. It includes Autoconf macros for detecting the presence of Guile on the system, detecting its version number and location of its components, a set of Makefile and Automake rules for snarfing C sources, i.e. generating auxiliary files (.x files, containing symbol information for Guile interpreter, and .doc files, containing information about Guile primitives, their arguments and docstrings), and a C lexer program for extracting docstrings from a C file.
Grecs is a library for parsing structured configuration files from C programs. A structured configuration file has hierarchical structure, with block statements enclosing lower-level statements. Such configurations files are used by many programs, such as, e.g. Bind or Dico.
Imprimatur provides Texinfo macros for various editing tasks such as adding editor notes and annotations, as well as Makeinfo rules for verifying Texinfo document structure, format, and (to a certain extent) content coverage.
* Fix AM_MAILUTILS macro
The macro incorrectly compared three-part version number with a
* Fix compilation with --disable-ipv6
* Fix SMTP EHLO command on machines with empty or undefined hostname
GNU Mailutils is a swiss army knife of electronic mail handling. It contains a rich set of mail-related utilities and daemons, including pop3d, imap4d, sieve and a universal mail delivery agent, called maidag.
* Improve pam_fshadow
This release allows the user to use arbitrary group numbers for
username and domain parts.
New options username-index and domain-index are used to indicate
indices of the parenthesized groups used to extract the user and
the domain name. The default corresponds to 'user-index=1 domain-index=1'.
Additionally, the behavior in case if the user name doesn't match the
regexp is changed. Previous versions would fall back to plain
authentication. The new behavior is to reject access.
