== SSSD 1.14 Beta === 

The SSSD team is proud to announce the release of version 1.14 Beta of
the System Security Services Daemon.

As always, the source is available from https://fedorahosted.org/sssd

== Feedback == 

Please provide comments, bugs and other feedback via the sssd-devel
or sssd-users mailing lists:

== Highlights ==
 * SSSD's cache performance was improved. SSSD now stores operational
   attributes of cache entries to a separate database with asynchronous
   writes mode, which results in substantially faster cache update times in
   most cases. Note that the performance of the initial cache write with an
   empty cache does not improve, only subsequent updates.
 * SSSD is able to merge configuration file snippets from an include
   directory. This functionality requires the latest libini release 1.3.0.
 * The GPO evaluator is able to skip malformed INI files. This feature is
   also only available with libini release 1.3.0 or newer.
 * A new command line tool, called sssctl was added. This tool allows the
   administrator to observe the status of SSSD. In this version, the tool
   is able to:
     * list SSSD domains and subdomains, including their online and
       offline status
     * print information about objects stored in the cache
     * backup or remove the local databases
     * help truncate SSSD logs 
 * SSSD is able to validate configuration files against a built-in
   schema. To retain backwards-compatibility with configuration files that
   would otherwise not validate, the validator only warns about errors in
   the config file in this version.
 * An ID-mapping plugin for the winbind deamon was added. With this plugin,
   it's possible for winbind to use the same ID-mapping scheme as SSSD uses,
   producing consistent ID values
 * A new "secrets" responder was added. This responder allows an application
   to communicate with SSSD over a UNIX socket using the Custodia API. SSSD
   then stores the secrets either in its local database or proxies them to
   a remote Custodia server.

== Packaging Changes ==
 * SSSD stores ephemeral attributes in a new ldb database called
   timestamps_$domain.ldb stored in the same directory as the regular caches.
 * The winbind ID-mapping plugin is packages in its own subpackage called
 * The SSSD configuration snippets are being read from a newly-owned
   directory /etc/sssd/conf.d.
 * SSSD ships a file with rules for the configuration validator. In Fedora,
   this file is located at /var/lib/sss/cfg_rules.ini
