Major changes in 1.13.2 (2015-05-08)
This is a bug fix release.
* Fix a minor vulnerability in krb5_read_message, which is primarily
used in the BSD-derived kcmd suite of applications. [CVE-2014-5355]
* Fix a bypass of requires_preauth in KDCs that have PKINIT enabled.
* Fix some issues with the LDAP KDC database back end.
* Fix an iteration-related memory leak in the DB2 KDC database back

* Add client support for the Kerberos Cache Manager protocol. If the
host is running a Heimdal kcm daemon, caches served by the daemon
can be accessed with the KCM: cache type.
* When built on OS X 10.7 and higher, use "KCM:" as the default cache
type, unless overridden by command-line options or krb5-config
* Add support for doing unlocked database dumps for the DB2 KDC back
end, which would allow the KDC and kadmind to continue accessing the
