		   Kerberos Version 5, Release 1.3

			    Release Notes
			The MIT Kerberos Team

Unpacking the Source Distribution
---------------------------------

The source distribution of Kerberos 5 comes in a gzipped tarfile,
krb5-1.3.tar.gz.  Instructions on how to extract the entire
distribution follow.

If you have the GNU tar program and gzip installed, you can simply do:

	gtar zxpf krb5-1.3.tar.gz

If you don't have GNU tar, you will need to get the FSF gzip
distribution and use gzcat:

	gzcat krb5-1.3.tar.gz | tar xpf -

Both of these methods will extract the sources into krb5-1.3/src and
the documentation into krb5-1.3/doc.

Building and Installing Kerberos 5
----------------------------------

The first file you should look at is doc/install-guide.ps; it contains
the notes for building and installing Kerberos 5.  The info file
krb5-install.info has the same information in info file format.  You
can view this using the GNU emacs info-mode, or by using the
standalone info file viewer from the Free Software Foundation.  This
is also available as an HTML file, install.html.

Other good files to look at are admin-guide.ps and user-guide.ps,
which contain the system administrator's guide, and the user's guide,
respectively.  They are also available as info files
kerberos-admin.info and krb5-user.info, respectively.  These files are
also available as HTML files.

If you are attempting to build under Windows, please see the
src/windows/README file.

Reporting Bugs
--------------

Please report any problems/bugs/comments using the krb5-send-pr
program.  The krb5-send-pr program will be installed in the sbin
directory once you have successfully compiled and installed Kerberos
V5 (or if you have installed one of our binary distributions).

If you are not able to use krb5-send-pr because you haven't been able
compile and install Kerberos V5 on any platform, you may send mail to
krb5-bugs@mit.edu.

You may view bug reports by visiting

http://krbdev.mit.edu/rt/

and logging in as "guest" with password "guest".

Notes, Major Changes, and Known Bugs for 1.3
--------------------------------------------

* We now install the compile_et program, so other packages can use the
  installed com_err library with their own error tables.  (If you use
  our com_err code, that is; see below.)

* The header files we install now assume ANSI/ISO C ('89, not '99).
  We have stopped testing on SunOS 4, even with gcc.  Some of our code
  now has C89-based assumptions, like free(NULL) being well defined,
  that will probably frustrate any attempts to run this code under SunOS
  4 or other pre-C89 systems.

* Some new code, bug fixes, and cleanup for IPv6 support.  [[TODO:
  Insert list of (non-)supporting programs and libraries here.]]

* We have upgraded to autoconf 2.52 (or later), and the syntax for
  specifying certain configuration options have changed.  For example,
  autoconf 2.52 configure scripts let you specify command-line options
  like "configure CC=/some/path/foo-cc", so we have removed some of
  our old options like --with-cc in favor of this approach.

* The client libraries can now use TCP to connect to the KDC.  This
  may be necessary when talking to Microsoft KDCs (domain controllers),
  if they issue you tickets with lots of PAC data.

* If you have versions of the com_err, ss, or Berkeley DB packages
  installed locally, you can use the --with-system-et,
  --with-system-ss, and --with-system-db configure options to use them
  rather than using the versions supplied here.  Note that the
  interfaces are assumed to be similar to those we supply; in
  particular, some older, divergent versions of the com_err library
  may not work with the krb5 sources.  Many configure-time variables
  can be used to help the compiler and linker find the installed
  packages; see the build documentation for details.

Major changes listed by ticket ID
---------------------------------

* [492] PRNG breakage on 64-bit platforms no longer an issue due to
  new PRNG implementation.

  cryptosystem used by Windows 2000.

* [1156, 1209] It is now possible to use the system com_err to build
  this release.

* [1174] TCP support added to client library.

* [1175] TCP support added to the KDC, but is disabled by default.

  [MITKRB5-SA-2003-004] have been worked around.  Note that this will
  disable krb4 cross-realm functionality, as well as krb4 triple-DES
  functionality.  Please see doc/krb4-xrealm.txt for details of the
  patch.

* [1393] The xdrmem integer overflows [MITKRB5-SA-2003-003] have
  been fixed.

* [1397] The krb5_principal buffer bounds problems
  [MITKRB5-SA-2003-005] have been fixed.  Thanks to Nalin Dahyabhai.

* [1415] Subsession key negotiation has been fixed to allow for
  server-selected subsession keys in the future.

* [433] --includedir honored now.

* [479] unused argument in try_krb4() in login.c deleted.

  Greg Hudson.

* [673] Weird echoing of admin password in kadmin client worked around

  CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, CPPFLAGS, etc. reasonably.

  use longjmp(), thus avoiding some bugs relating to non-restoration
  of terminal settings.

* [710] decomp_ticket() in libkrb4 now looks up the local realm name
  more correctly.  Thanks to Booker Bense.

* [986] Related to [677], problems with the ordering of LDFLAGS
  initialization rendered irrelevant by use of native autoconf
  idioms.

* [992] Related to [677], quirks with --with-cc no longer relevant as
  AC_PROG_CC is used instead now.

* [999] kdc_default_options now honored in gss context initialization.

* [1006] Client library, as well as KDC, now perform reasonable
  sorting of ETYPE-INFO preauthentication data.

* [1055] NULL pointer dereferences in code calling
  krb5_change_password() have been fixed.

  host having a large number of local network interfaces should be

  implemented via krb5_prompter_posix().

  encoded as zero-length strings.

* [1226] Client-side support for SAM hardware-based preauth
  implemented.
