kstart 3.15

It's been more than a year since the previous release, so this was long-overdue. Most of the hold-up has been converting the package to use C TAP Harness and rra-c-util, which required a lot of resynchronization and led to the new releases of those packages.

The main new features in this release are that k5start and krenew catch SIGALRM and immediately refresh the ticket cache even if it hasn't apparently expired and krenew has a new option, -i, to continue running even in the event of errors. Further improvements to error handling in krenew and k5start are likely in the next release.

There are also a wide variety of more minor bug fixes and documentation improvements. The build of k4start is now automatically skipped if no Kerberos v4 libraries are detected. And, of course, there are all the changes from updating to the current C TAP Harness and rra-c-util shared code.

You can get the latest release from the kstart distribution page.
