                  === SSSD 1.12 Beta 1 ===

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

This beta release includes several new features, notably a public DBus API,
an ID-mapping plugin for cifs-utils and a first milestone of the GPO access
control support.

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 Beta 2 release is scheduled for next week. Our goal is to
include several patches currently pending review and finish string changes
before declaring String Freeze. After the Beta 2 release, the development
will refocus to bug fixing in preparation for the 1.12 final release.

== Feedback ==

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

== Highlights ==

* A new responder, called InfoPipe was added. This responder provides a
  public D-Bus interface accessible over the system bus. In this release,
  methods for retrieving user attributes and list of groups were added as
  well as objects representing SSSD domains and processes. The next 1.12.x
  releases will publish objects representing users and groups, too.
* SSSD provides an ID-mapping plugin for cifs-utils so that Windows SIDs
  can be mapped onto POSIX IDs and/or names without requiring Winbind and
  using the same code as the SSSD uses for identity information.
* Added a new library called sss_sifp that provides a simple synchronous
  API for communication with our new InfoPipe responder over the system bus.
* journald can now be used to store debug logs. The journald support
  is not enabled by default. In order to enable it, compile SSSD with
* First phase of Group Policy-based access control for the AD provider was
  added. At the moment, the gpo-ldap component that downloads the list of
  GPOs that apply for the specific client has been implemented. The gpo-smb
  component that retrieves the group policy files and determines the access
  control check results based on those files is expected to be implemented
  in one of the next 1.12.x releases

== Packaging Changes ==

 * The sssd_sifp library and the InfoPipe responder are packaged in their
   own subpackages

== Documentation Changes ==

 * The new InfoPipe responder has several configuration options. Refer
   to the sssd-ifp manual page for details.
 * A new option offline_timeout was added. This option allows the
   administrator to configure how often should SSSD attempt to reconnect
   when in offline mode
 * The LDAP provider has a new option ldap_user_extra_attrs that enables the
   administrator to extend the map of attributes downloaded when looking up
   a user. These custom attributes can then be retrieved with the new DBus API.
 * The automounter master map name can now be configured with a new option
 * A new option ad_gpo_access_control is available to let the user configure
   the behaviour of the GPO access control feature.
