=== SSSD 1.10 Beta 1 === The SSSD team is proud to announce the beta release of version 1.10 of the System Security Services Daemon.
This beta release includes several new features, mostly targeted at better integration with Microsoft Active Directory. As always, the source is available from https://fedorahosted.org/sssd. RPM packages will be made available for Fedora 19 and rawhide shortly. The SSSD 1.10 Beta 2 release is tentatively scheduled for next week, before the Fedora Test Day which will happen on May 9th. The Beta 2 release will contain the remaining features we finish before the Test Day. There might be another pre-release if any of the planned features are not ready for the test day, after this last pre-release, the SSSD will enter a period of string-freeze and the 1.10 development will switch to bug fixing in preparation for the 1.10 final release. == Feedback == Please provide comments, bugs and other feedback via the sssd-devel or sssd-users mailing lists: https://lists.fedorahosted.org/mailman/listinfo/sssd-devel https://lists.fedorahosted.org/mailman/listinfo/sssd-users == Highlights == * The Active Directory provider now includes support for Site-based discovery. This feature allows the Active Directory clients to find the most suitable Domain Controller to connect to. * Support for dynamic DNS updates in the Active Directory provider. This feature enables the clients to automatically update or refresh their DNS records stored in the AD server. * A new library, called libsss_nss_idmap was introduced. This library allows the user to convert Windows Security Identifiers (SIDs) to names and vice versa. The library also includes Python bindings. * Setting the SELinux context on the IPA server now also works for users coming from a trusted Active Directory domain * Fixed a serious performance issue when enumerating large number of users * The subdomain_homedir configuration option gained a new template expansion %F that expands to the flat name (NetBIOS name) of the trusted AD domain == Packaging Changes == * The SSSD python ConfigAPI was moved to its own noarch subpackage to make the SSSD packaging more compliant with the Fedora packaging guidelines * The libsss_nss_idmap library and its Python bindings are packaged in separate subpackages == Tickets Fixed == https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/453 [RFE] Replace pam status codes with sssd specific codes https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/902 [RFE] Allow setting krb5_renew_interval with a delimiter https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1032 [RFE] sssd should support DNS sites https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1414 [RFE] Improve syslog message when configuration cannot be loaded https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1609 [RFE] Subdomain homedir template should be configurable/use flatname by default https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1625 Confusing error messages for invalid sssd.conf https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1741 sss_cache doesn't support subdomains https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1767 unify sss_mc_set_recycled https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1774 move processing of password expiration back to PAM provider only https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1784 rewrite nested group processing to follow the tevent_req coding style https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1786 Use new interface from ding-libs ini interface https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1809 Document that SSSD domains should only be named using ASCII characters https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1830 make the authtok structure really opaque https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1839 Incorrect *.py[co] files placement https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1842 Allow usage of enterprise principals https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1844 add a call to calculated the range for a given domain SID to libsss_idmap https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1848 unused parameter in ipa_selinux handler https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1860 pidfile() may leak memory on error https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1861 potential out-of-bounds-write in sss_idmap_sid_to_dom_sid https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1862 negative return in files.c https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1864 Bad comparisons in checks found by new Coverity instance https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1865 Logically dead code in tools_util.c https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1867 document that AD provider is always case insensitive https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1877 ding-libs.dhash: uninitialized pointer read https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1888 freeipa 3.2 trusted ad user not listed in external group https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1889 coverity: dead code in sudo client https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1890 SSSD doesn't display warning for last grace login. https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/1892 In IPA AD trust setup, the sssd logs throws 'sysdb_search_user_by_name failed' error when AD user tries to login via ipa client. == Detailed Changelog == Abhishek Singh (3): * cmocka unittest for find_uid added * cmocka unittest for io added * Fix segmentation fault in test_io.
