POPT 1.18


Changes from popt 1.16

  • fix an ugly and ancient security issue with popt failing to drop privileges on alias exec from a SUID/SGID program
  • perform rudimentary sanity checks when reading in popt config files
  • collect accumulated misc fixes (memleaks etc) from distros
  • convert translations to utf-8 encoding
  • convert old postscript documentation to pdf
  • dust off ten years worth of autotools sediment
  • reorganize and clean up the source tree for clarity
  • remove the obnoxious splint annotations from the sources
