MAJOR CHANGES
=============

Kerberos 5 Release 1.5 includes many significant changes to the
Kerberos build system, to GSS-API, and to the Kerberos KDC and
administration system. These changes build up infrastructure as part
of our efforts to make Kerberos more extensible and flexible. While
we are confident that these changes will improve Kerberos in the long
run, significant code restructuring may introduce portability problems
or change behavior in ways that break applications. It is always
important to test a new version of critical security software like
Kerberos before deploying it in your environment to confirm that the
new version meets your environment's requirements. Because of the
significant restructuring, it is more important than usual to perform
this testing and to report problems you find.

Highlights of major changes include:

* KDB abstraction layer, donated by Novell.

* plug-in architecture, allowing for extension modules to be loaded at
run-time.

* multi-mechanism GSS-API implementation ("mechglue"), donated by
Sun Microsystems

* Simple and Protected GSS-API negotiation mechanism ("SPNEGO")
implementation, donated by Sun Microsystems

* Per-directory ChangeLog files have been deleted. Releases now
include auto-generated revision history logs in the combined file
doc/CHANGES.
