-----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.
