I am proud to announce xauth-1.0.8, a minor maintenance release
containing mostly bug fixes, where I want to highlight two of them:

  * Fix a long standing problem that for ssh tunneled connections a
    display variable of the form: localhost:<N>.<M> leads to correct
    authorization when an X client is started but "xauth list $DISPLAY"
    returns nothing.

  * Fix for: If using GDM with XDMCP, then ssh is not able to start X11
    clients on the remote side. You get a "No xauth data; using fake
    authentication data for X11 forwarding." from SSH.

Alan Coopersmith (3):
       Remove unused TLI ("STREAMSCONN") code from xauth
       Remove unused DECnet ("DNETCONN") code from xauth
       Assume signal handlers return void, as C89 requires

Dr. Tilmann Bubeck (11):
       Fix various compiler warnings raised by modern gcc (4.8.1).
       More fixes for compiler warnings regarding the use of "const".
       Added black box tests for basic functionality started with "make check".
       Rework match_auth_dpy() to be easier to read and maintain (hopefully).
       Fix warning raised by "-Wshadow".
       Added command "version" and command line arg "-V" to show version of xauth.
       Improved README to explain "make check".
       version bump to 1.0.8
       Revert version bump back to 1.0.7 to prepare missing commit before 1.0.8
       Rewrote test_xauth to C to make automake and "make distclean" happy.
       Second version bump to 1.0.8

Egbert Eich (5):
       Don't crash when running past the end of the chain
       Look for FamilyLocal if inet or inet6 address is loopback
       Look for FamilyLocal if inet or inet6 address is loopback
       Handle v4-mapped inet6 addresses correctly
       Make matching algorithm mimic XauGet*AuthByAddr

Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia (2):
       Revert "Look for FamilyLocal if inet or inet6 address is loopback"
       Silenece lack of noreturn warning
