Description

(Notes taken from upstream release mail)

  • The sockets connection between the slaves and the GDM daemon is now better managed to better ensure that sockets are never left open. (Brian Cameron)

  • Corrected bug that causes a core dump when you click on gdmgreeter fields that have an id. (Brian Cameron)

  • Add new GdmXserverTimeout configuration setting so that the length of time GDM waits for the Xserver to start can be tuned, so GDM better works with Xservers that require more than 10 seconds to start. (Emilie)

  • The happygnome and happygnome-list gdmgreeter themes now use the official logo. (Brian Cameron)

  • Now GDM configure supports --with-sysconfsubdir so that GDM's configuration directory can be configured to not have '/gdm' appended to the end.

  • Fix for ensuring .ICEauthority file has proper ownership/permissions. Addresses CVE-2006-1057. (Hans Petter Jansson)

  • Fix 'Show Actions Menu' section in gdmsetup so it appears when both 'Plain' and 'Themed' style is chosen. (Brian Cameron, Dennis Cranston)

  • Now use LINGUAS procedure for defining languages. (Michiel Sikkes)

  • Now Xsession script uses '$@' instead of '$1' so it is possible to pass arguments with the command to run. (Brian Cameron)

  • Add Trusted Solraris support. (Niall Power)

  • One line fix to Solaris auditing logic that fixes a bug causing authentication to fail when auditing is turned on. (Brian Cameron)

  • Fixes to compile with C99 and fixes to compile under NetBSD. Remove EXPANDED_* variables from the configure. (Julio M. Merino Vidal)

  • Translation updates (Aygimantas Beruaka, Benoat Dejean, Laurent Dhima, Maxim Dziumanenko, Alessio Frusciante, Rhys Jones, Raphael Higino, Theppitak Karoonboonyanan, Gabor Kelmen, Priit Laes, Jordi Mallach, Kjartan Maraas, Daniel Nylander, Kostas Papdimas, Guilherme de S.
