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: A medium rewrite was undertaken. Support for plugins (modules and scripts) was added. vlock-all, vlock-new, and vlock-nosysrq were converted to modules. Other sample modules were added. vlock now tries to terminate cleanly if killed by SIGTERM and on errors.
