[Dazuko-devel] 2.2.0 released

User-agent: Debian Thunderbird 1.0.2 (X11/20051010)


Version 2.2.0 of Dazuko has now been released. As mentioned previously,
the sudden change from 2.1.1 to 2.2.0 is due to some important changes
in Dazuko's core (the cross-platform code used for all platforms). All
versions prior to 2.2.x have a potential deadlock that can occur if
registered application groups are not returning access responses as fast
as they are coming in. This is an unfortunate bug that has been with
Dazuko since before it was released as free software.

Another change is for Linux 2.6: Dazuko now allows the LSM hook
inode_permission() to be stacked. This was necessary to allow other
modules (such as that used by SuSE's AppArmor) to stack on top of
Dazuko. Unfortunately SuSE has now decided to no longer ship Dazuko with
their OS. The fact that Dazuko uses LSM is the main reason for these
complications (which are not only technical, but also political). Dazuko
needs to get out of LSM on Linux 2.6. Fortunately this is planned for
Dazuko 3.0 (and is currently in very active development).
