Release Notes: pwqcheck is now usable by OpenBSD and is able to check multiple passphrases at once. The random passphrases will now encode more entropy per separator and per word, increasing their default size to 47 bits. Substring matching will now partially discount rather than fully remove weak substrings, support leetspeak, and detect sequential digits, letters, and adjacent keys. The strength checking code will now detect and allow passphrases with non-ASCII (8-bit) characters in the words. The code has been made significantly faster. RPM packages can now be built out of the distribution tarballs.
Release Notes: The pam_passwdqc package has been renamed to passwdqc along with the introduction of libpasswdqc (a password/passphrase strength checking library), pwqcheck (a standalone password/passphrase strength checking program), and pwqgen (a standalone random passphrase generator program), in addition to the PAM module, which is now built upon libpasswdqc. The config=FILE option has been added to allow for specifying the password/passphrase policy in a configuration file rather than on the command-line. The documentation has been revised, including the introduction of man pages for the new components.
