remctl 3.13

remctl is a client and server that forms a very simple remote RPC system, normally authenticated with Kerberos, although including a remctl-shell variant that works over ssh.

This release adds forced-command support for remctl-shell, which allows it to work without enabling setting environment variables in authorized_keys. This may be a preferrable configuration to using it as an actual shell.

Also in this release, the summary configuration option is allowed for commands with subcommands other than ALL, which allows proper generation of command summaries even for users who only have access to a few subcommands of a command. It also adds some build system support for building binaries with -fPIE.

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