I've made available patchlevel 10 of the Kerberos V4 package.  The
primary features included in this release are enhancements to the kadmin
server to enforce password quality and a kadmind client to allow remote
srvtab generation.  This release also has modifications to allow it to
compile on several new platforms, such as the Sun, RS/6000, and SGI
machines.

It is available on athena-dist.mit.edu.  cd to /pub/kerberos, and read
the file README.KRB4 for more information on how to retrieve the rest of
the release.

This release represents the final Kerberos V4 release that we expect to
do at MIT.  Its main motiviation is the fact that several parties have
obtained copies of our internal source tree, which has several new
features and supports additional platforms that are not in the publicly
released V4 distribution.  Thus, we are making a final release so that
everybody can have equal access to our code.

We are not planning on doing any further Kerberos V4 work at this time;
our future development efforts will be based off of Kerberos V5, not V4.
