Release Notes: A bug that prevented shadow authentication from working has been fixed, and vlock error messages and the man page have been improved. vlock is now able to be killed only by root.
Release Notes: Small code cleanups, and fixes for two theoretical security problems.
Release Notes: Many improvements were made to security. As a result the commend line can now no longer be called without locking the terminal. The source code tree was cleaned up and all source code now resides in the "src" subdirectory. A ChangeLog was added. The man pages, LICENSE, and README files were updated. A SECURITY blurb was added. The -n,--new option was changed and now implies -a,--all instead of requiring it.
Release Notes: vlock-grab was split into two separate tools: vlock-grab now simply grabs the console and prevents switching. vlock-new handles allocating a new console. As a result, vlock gains a new option "-n,--new" for allocating a new console before locking. Manpages for all binaries were added, and the manpage of vlock was updated. vlock-lock now supports locking as $USER if run as root and requires the enter key to be pressed before authentication is started.
Release Notes: Shadow authentication was added, so PAM is now optional again. vlock-auth was renamed to vlock-lock. Terminal handling in vlock-lock was improved.
Release Notes: This is a major rewrite since vlock 1.4. vlock is now made of separate tools that are called from a main shell script.
Release Notes: vlock 1.4 now supports optionally disabling the SysRQ keys while the entire console display is locked. All other changes are merely cosmetical, cleaning up license statements, includes, and makefile rules.
