remctl 3.9

This release fixes an embarassing bug that caused the server to often abort sending information back to the client if the server-side program exited while the server was still sending data. It also fixes a more minor bug in which children of the server were spawned with SIGPIPE ignored instead of set to the default handling behavior.

The major new feature in this release is a new ACL type, localgroup, contributed by Remi Ferrand. When this ACL type is used, the remote principal is converted to a local username using the normal Kerberos krb5_aname_to_localname call, and then the server checks whether that local username is a member of a local (nsswitch) group.

This release also prefers calloc and reallocarray to malloc and realloc with calculated sizes across all code, and adds version and compatibility information to all manual pages.

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