Release notes for 2.51 2021-06-20 16:57:57 -0700

  • Fix capsh installation
  • Add an autoauth module flag to pam_cap.so
  • Unified libcap/cap (Go) and libcap (C) default generation of external format binary data
    • This standard binary format should be forwards/backwards compatible with earlier libcap2 builds and libcap/cap packages
  • API enhancement cap_fill() and (*cap.Set).Fill() - to permit copying one capability flag to another.
    • This can be used to raise all the Permitted capabilities in a Set with one API call.
  • In tree build/run/test of Go packages now uses Go module vendoring.
    • This is with an eye to the imminent golang change removing support for GOPATH based building.
  • Minor compilation warning fixes
