Project Athena is expecting to release the Kerberos code for public
distribution before the Usenix Conference later this month.

If you have encountered problems with the beta-test code, please
send reports to "", and we will try to
squash as many bugs as time permits.  [Hopefully many of them have
already been squashed!]

We are planning to release:
	Base Kerberos code:
		application library
			libkrb, libkdb, libkadm
			libdes (USA only, for the moment)
		KDC code
		administration tools
		user tools
	client programs:
		sample client & server
		latest Berkeley r-command suite (the versions
			with no redistribution restrictions)

The released version will certainly work on VAX (4.3BSD), and IBM RT/PC
(AOS 4.3).  Other operating systems/hardware platforms will be tested as
time permits (Suns, VAX/Ultrix, others).

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
