PHP-Authentication works like the Tomcat authentication. You give the source to authenticate against (DB, file, XML-RPC, etc.) and the directories that shall be protected, and the class handles the rest. No including of any call to a class method on every page is necessary. You can also use it as if it were a standard Auth-class, using a call to "isLoggedIn" on every page that shall be protected.

Release Notes: This release works properly on PHP 4.1 and later. There are some bugfixes. Upadting is recommended, especially if you use the memory container. This release will save GET data for a requested URL, which makes integration of Auth in an existing application even easier.
