File::BackupCopy

Version: 1.02  —  2021-02-13
	- Change bugtracker address.
	
	  
Category:
Description:

Perl extension for creating backup file copies. Three backup naming schemes are supported: simple backup creates backup file name by appending single tilde character to the original file name, numbered backup creates backup name by suffixing the original file name with .~N~, where N is a decimal number. Finally, automatic backup selects numbered scheme if at least one numbered backup file already exists and falls back to the simple backup otherwise.

inetutils

Version: 1.9.3  —  May 12, 2015
* ftp

An old inability to allow other names than the canonical name has
been corrected.  This means that a machine entry in the .netrc file
will now be used as expected.  Previously any alias name was replaced
by the corresponding canonical name, before reading the .netrc file.

The internal command `hash' accepts a suffixed letter to the size
argument, like `12k', instead of 12288.  Made a minor change to the
syntax of the command itself, allowing size changes independently
of activation of hash markings.  After a transfer the summary gives
the speed as `Mbytes/s', `kbytes/s', or `bytes/s'.

The .netrc file can be overridden by the environment variable NETRC.
Of even higher precedence is the new option `-N/--netrc'.  The access
to the resulting file, whatever method, is now denied unless it is a
regular file.

* ifconfig

Better command line parsing on BSD and Solaris systems.  Touch only
changeable flags on all systems.

* logger

The ability to use numerical facilities is restored to full range.

* ping, ping6

The ability to specify a pattern as payload is corrected.

* syslogd

A new switch `-T/--local-time' makes the service ignore a time
stamp passed on by the remote host, recording instead the local
time at the moment the message was received.  As a short form of
`--pidfile', the switch `-P' is new.

In common with other syslogd implementations, rsyslogd and sysklogd,
there has for a long time existed an attack vector based on large
facility numbers, made public in CVE-2014-3684.  This is now mended
in our code base.

* telnetd

The ability to autologin a client, without using authentication,
is now functional in the expected manner, i.e., the prompt for a
user name is suppressed in favour of an immediate password prompt.

In a setting where the client is using a UTF-8 encoding, it was
common to observe strange characters in most responses.  This was
caused by the server daemon, due to incomplete purging of internal
protocol data.  The issue should now be resolved.

* whois

Improved cooperation with servers like `whois.arin.net', `whois.eu',
and `whois.ripe.net'.

pam-modules

Version: 2.5  —  2022-05-09
* pam_fshadow: skip-password option

Based on the proposal of Mirsad Goran Todorovac, the new option
skip-password instructs pam_fshadow to check whether the user
being authenticated is present in the passwd and/or shadow files,
without verifying his password.  This way pam_fshadow can be used as
an auxiliary module in the stack, actual authentication being
performed by one of the modules before it.

wordsplit

(Not released)
Category:
Description:

This package provides a set of C functions for parsing input strings. Default parsing rules are are similar to those used in Bourne shell. This includes tilde expansion, variable expansion, quote removal, word splitting, command substitution, and path expansion. Parsing is controlled by a number of settings which allow the caller to alter processing at each of these phases or even to disable any of them. Thus, wordsplit can be used for parsing inputs in different formats, from simple character-delimited entries, as in /etc/passwd, and up to complex shell statements.
