                  === SSSD 1.12 Beta 2 ===

The SSSD team is proud to announce the second beta release of version 1.12
of the System Security Services Daemon.

As always, the source is available from https://fedorahosted.org/sssd.
RPM packages will be made available for Fedora rawhide shortly.

The SSSD 1.12.0 release is scheduled for the end of June. Our goal is
to stabilize the release and focus solely on bug fixes until the final
1.12.0 release. At the same time, the SSSD is string-frozen until the
release of 1.12.0.

== Feedback ==

Please provide comments, bugs and other feedback via the sssd-devel
or sssd-users mailing lists:

== Highlights ==

* This releases merges the enhancements that were included in 1.11.6 and
  stabilizes the strings before releasing 1.12.0. With this beta2, SSSD
  enters a string freeze period before the final 1.12.0 release
* Several patches that improve portability of SSSD, especially with
  consideration of BSD systems have been included
* The sss_usermod tool was enhanced to add or modify custom attributes
  for entries in domains configured with id_provider=local. This feature
  is mostly useful for testing the InfoPipe responder without having to
  configure a remote server.
* Fixed unit tests on big-endian architectures

== Documentation Changes ==

* A new option ldap_use_tokengroups was added. Setting this option to False
  disables the support for tokenGroups, which is useful for environments that
  wish to restrict the group nesting level. Doing so with tokenGroups enabled
  is nontrivial since the tokenGroups attribute flattens the group memberships.
* A new option homedir_substring makes it possible to substitute a
  templatized home directory attribute for a client-side defined value

== Tickets Fixed ==

    [RFE] Add the possibility to add custom attributes for the local provider
    document that simple access provider supports group nesting
