Date: Wed, 10 Mar 2021 20:17:12 +0100 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com, passwdqc-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: passwdqc 2.0.1 Hi, This is to announce passwdqc 2.0.1, a new minor version of our password/passphrase strength checking and enforcement tool set: https://www.openwall.com/passwdqc/ This release is mostly due to work by Dmitry V. Levin. Significant changes between 2.0.0 and 2.0.1: Improved pam_passwdqc's auto-generated policy descriptions, which were slightly misformatted since the introduction of i18n support in 1.4.0. Now they not only look prettier, but also make it clearer that the mentioned lengths are merely the minimums and not the recommended ones. Updated Russian translation for consistency with the above and to cover messages added in 1.9.0+. Increased maximum size of randomly-generated passphrases to 136 bits. This was already the limit in the underlying API, but the tools' limit was set to 85. This increase is to allow for a wider variety of use cases for the tools. In the Makefile, use CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS consistently to be friendlier to packaging by distros. Added the file CHANGES based on two latest release announcements, and started to maintain it. (There was a change log in the RPM spec file before, and it's still maintained as well, but it's more technical.) Alexander
