kadmin-remctl 3.1

This release fixes various problems with account creation in the new Heimdal backend introduced in version 3.0 that we had fixed locally but which I'd not yet released. It also introduces three new commands: expiration, which sets the account expiration; pwexpiration, which sets the password expiration; and check_expire, which queries either expiration time.

There are also some improvements for the MIT backend: the password policy to apply can now be specified, rather than just be enabled or disabled, and there is a new create_opts configuration option that allows one to configure additional arguments to pass to addprinc.

Underscores are now allowed in principal names for the examine command.

This package really needs to be rewritten to refactor common code, use a Perl module to speak to the MIT Kerberos kadmin server, and clean up the output format, but that's not that release. I'm hopeful that sometime next calendar year I'll have a chance to that.

You can get the latest version from the kadmin-remctl distribution page.
