Release Notes: This release fixes vlock not reacting to input when started in the background from bash.
Release Notes: This release adds slight build system changes to help distributors. The number of failed authentication tries is now displayed on exit.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug that would sometimes close stdin if a script was requested and later unloaded due to missing dependencies.
Release Notes: Vlock's architecture was again changed from using multiple executables to a single one with plugin support. The main helpers "vlock-all", "vlock-new", and "vlock-nosysrq" were all converted to plugins to keep filesystem based permission checking. Plugins may be scripts or shared objects and can add functions like muting the sound, pausing music or movie playback, and even eye candy screen savers.
Release Notes: Only two minor bugs were fixed. This will hopefully be the last release candidate.
Release Notes: The fix for the previous security issue was changed slightly: directory parts are now silently stripped from erroneous names instead of being reported as errors. A file descriptor leak was fixed in the script handling. A bug that could result in vlock spinning in an infinite loop if stdin wasn't a terminal was fixed. Unit tests (using cunit) were added.
Release Notes: A critical security problem (a local root exploit) was found and corrected: previous versions of vlock (since 2.2 alpha1) contained a serious flaw that allowed any user to execute arbitrary code as root. This was possible because plugin names could contain "../", thus escaping the pre-defined plugin directory. All users of vlock 2.2 development versions are advised to update. Besides the security issue, script handling was improved and two more example scripts were added.
Release Notes: A bug in the man page installation rule was fixed.
Release Notes: The documentation was updated and cleaned up.
Release Notes: A dependency handling bug was fixed. Portability was improved. Error handling and error messages were improved.
