Release notes for 2.54 - 2021-08-25 21:09:19 -0700

  • Fix for a corner case infinite loop handling long strings
  • Fixes to not ignore allocation failures
  • Found and fixed a memory leak in cap_iab_get_proc()
  • More robust discovery of the name of the dynamic loader of the build target
  • Revamped the Go capability comparison API for *cap.Set and *cap.IAB, and added cap.IABGetPID()
  • Added libcap cap_iab_compare() and cap_iab_get_pid() APIs.
  • Added a Go utility, captree, to display the process (and thread) graph along with the POSIX.1e and IAB capabilities of each PID{TID} tree.
  • Extended getpcap to support the --iab command line argument, which outputs a PID's IAB tuple too (if non-default).
  • Install *.so files as executable now that they are executable as binaries
    • A feature of 2.52 but not extended to install rules at that time.
  • Absorbed a lot of wisdom from a number of downstream package workarounds including wisdom from (Zhi Li and Arnout Vandecappelle and unknown others...
  • Support make FORCELINKPAM=yes or make FORCELINKPAM=no for those packagers that feel strongly about not letting this be dynamically discovered at build time.
  • Fixed a compiler warnings from the GitHub build tester
