New minor version. Changes seem benign. Many things, e.g. Changelog, have not been updated, but NEWS has:
*** general * Handle libc whose crypt() returns NULL when passed a salt that violates specs or system requirements (e.g. FIPS140). This is needed with glibc/eglibc 2.17 for tools checking passwords (passwd (non PAM enabled) or newgrp), and for tools generating encrypted passwords (chgpasswd, chpasswd, or gpasswd when non PAM enabled or when a fixed crypt method is requested on the command line, and newusers, or passwd in their non PAM enabled versions) * Fix segfault when reading groups split on multiple lines. This impacts most user/group management tools when MAX_MEMBERS_PER_GROUP is set. - su * When su receives a signal (SIGTERM, or SIGINT/SIGQUIT in non interactive mode), kill the child process group, rather than just the immediate child. * Fix segmentation faults for users without a proper home or shell in their passwd entries. - login * Fix segmentation faults for users without a proper home or shell in their passwd entries. *** documentation * Fixed useradd man page (--home-dir option, instead of --home). *** translation * Updated Russian translation. * Updated German man pages translation. * Fixed gshadow Japanese man page translation.
