The MIT MacDev team is pleased to announce the availability of
Kerberos for Macintosh 4.0.2. This release is available from the MIT
<http://mit.edu/kerberos/www/> Follow the "Getting Kerberos from MIT" link.
All feedback and bug reports for Kerberos for Macintosh 4.0.2 should
be sent to <mailto:krbdev at mit.edu>
Kerberos for Macintosh 4.0.2 is a maintenance update release for both
Mac OS 8 & 9 and Mac OS X.
The distribution download includes both KfM 4.0.2 for Mac OS 8 & 9
and KfM 4.0.2 for Mac OS X. Both installers and separate binaries
are included in the distribution.
Kerberos for Macintosh 4.0.2 for the Mac OS 8 & 9 requires a PowerPC
Macintosh with Mac OS 8.1 or later.
KfM 4.0.2 for Mac OS X requires Mac OS X 10.1.2 through 10.1.5; KfM
4.0.2 is not compatible with Mac OS X 10.2 ("Jaguar"), which ships
with a later version of KfM - use the 10.2 built in Kerberos with the
Mac OS X 10.2 Kerberos Extras instead.
This is a final release, and does not expire.
Changes since Kerberos For Macintosh 4.0.1
* Mac OS X/9: Changes to Classic ticket sharing for compatibility
with Mac OS X 10.2 Kerberos
* Mac OS X/9: Memory leak when destroying tickets fixed
* Mac OS X: Pasting password into Kerberos Login dialog now enables OK button.
Ticket Sharing Between Mac OS X and Classic
The ticket sharing in KfM 4.0.2 for Mac OS 8 & 9 is compatible with
both KfM 4.0.2 for Mac OS X on Mac OS X 10.1, and with the built-in
Kerberos of Mac OS X 10.2.
If you are using Classic ticket sharing on Mac OS X 10.2, it is
essential you upgrade to KfM 4.0.2 on the Classic side.
KfM 4.0.2 for Mac OS 8 & 9 is not compatible with KfM 4.0 for Mac OS
X; if you upgrade to KfM 4.0.2 on the Classic side, you must upgrade
your Mac OS X side to KfM 4.0.2 as well. However, it is not critical
to upgrade to KfM 4.0.2 if you are still using Mac OS X 10.1.
When an application running under Classic needs to display the
Kerberos Login dialog, the Mac OS X dialog will appear.
The Mac OS 9 version of KfM 4.0.2 detects whether it is running under
Mac OS X/Classic or regular Mac OS 9.x and automatically enables
support for ticket sharing when possible.
At this point in time, this release is available as a single package
which includes installers, binaries, and SDKs. The installers install
binaries for people to use with their applications in their
environments. The separate binaries are intended for sites who need
to create their own installers. The SDKs are for application and
library programmers to add Kerberos functionality to their code or
update to newer versions of the various Kerberos APIs.
