I'm pleased (but also somewhat chagrined) to announce release 2.4 of
pam-afs-sesssion.  This fixes a serious bug in 2.3.  Anyone who installed
2.3 should upgrade to 2.4.

pam-afs-session is a PAM module intended for use with a Kerberos v5 PAM
module to obtain an AFS PAG and AFS tokens on login.  It puts every new
session in a PAG regardless of whether it was authenticated with Kerberos
and either uses Heimdal's libkafs or runs a configurable external program
to obtain tokens.  It supports using Heimdal's libkafs or OpenAFS's
libkopenafs for the AFS interface and falls back to an internal
implementation if libkafs isn't available.

Changes from previous release:

    Fix a memory allocation and initialization bug in the previous release
    that could result in a free of unallocated memory.
