-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

The MIT Kerberos Team is proud to announce the availability of MIT
Kerberos 5 Release 1.1.  Major new features include:

* Triple DES support is included; however, it is only usable for
  service keys at the moment, due to a large number of compatibility
  issues.  For example, the GSSAPI library has some (buggy) support
  for a triple DES session key, but it is intentionally disabled.

* The principal database now uses the btree backend of Berkeley DB.
  This should result in improved KDC performance.

* The build system has been redesigned somewhat; there are now
  no longer configure scripts for each individual directory.

* As part of the build system redesign, shared library builds are
  under a new framework; at this point only Solaris (2.x), Irix (6.5),
  NetBSD (1.4 i386), and possibly Linux are known to work.  All other
  working shared library builds may be figments of your
  imagination.

* Mac and Windows builds should work better than they did in
  the 1.0 releases.

LAST MINUTE NOTICES
===================
These last minute notes are not in the documentation for the release.

* Syslog-based logging has a possible denial-of-service bug, which
  will be fixed in an upcoming release.  For now, do *NOT* use
  syslog-based logging for the KDC or kadmind.  File-based logging
  will still work, and is not vulnerable to the denial-of-service
  attack.

		       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
