Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : shadow-utils
Version     : 4.0.3
Release     : 56
Summary     : Utilities for managing accounts and shadow password files.
Description :
The shadow-utils package includes the necessary programs for
converting UNIX password files to the shadow password format, plus
programs for managing user and group accounts. The pwconv command
converts passwords to the shadow password format. The pwunconv command
unconverts shadow passwords and generates an npasswd file (a standard
UNIX password file). The pwck command checks the integrity of password
and shadow files. The lastlog command prints out the last login times
for all users. The useradd, userdel, and usermod commands are used for
managing user accounts. The groupadd, groupdel, and groupmod commands
are used for managing group accounts.

Update Information:

A regression has been fixed where strict enforcement of POSIX rules for user
and group names prevented Samba 3 from using its "add machine script" 
with useradd. Also, the maximum length for a username/groupname is now 31
(previously it was 32). The lastlog command can now handle extremely large
(greater than 4GB) lastlogs.
* Fri Dec 03 2004 Adrian Havill <havill at redhat.com> 2:4.0.3-56

- tweak max allowed length of user/group names to sizeof(ut_user)-1
  to allow for '\0' termination
- add lastlog support for >4gb (#125445)

* Tue Nov 23 2004 Bill Nottingham <notting at redhat.com>

- ghost lastlog here (#139539)

* Tue Nov 16 2004 Adrian Havill <havill at redhat.com> 2:4.0.3-42

- change MAXMEM static limit on group count to dynamic (#125510)
- re-allow "$" as last char for the sake of samba (#132782)
- don't strip binaries for debuginfo
