MyProxy 5.0 is now available from the MyProxy web site
(http://myproxy.ncsa.uiuc.edu/).

SHA1 checksum: 98593c5548d869245cb12f778951175697dd71dc
MD5 checksum: 056f24d00d090844bf851c488a036b28

Changes in this release:
- add Globus Usage Metrics to the myproxy-server
  (http://myproxy.ncsa.uiuc.edu/privacy)
- in myproxy-server, atomically update credential files and avoid
  unnecessary file copies; NOTE API CHANGE: myproxy_creds_store()
  now moves file to the repository, rather than copying it
- add myproxy-server.config request_size_limit parameter to control
  myproxy-server network limits, and fix network limit handling to
  apply only to myproxy-server (not clients), so clients can handle
  large X509_CERT_DIR contents
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6889)
- include extendedKeyUsage=clientAuth in EECs by default per GFD.125
- add myproxy-logon/myproxy-get-trustroots -b option to allow
  bootstrapping CA trust even when X509_CERT_DIR exists
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6886)
- myproxy-logon -T / myproxy-get-trustroots fixes/improvements:
  - when cleaning bad CRLs, also remove any CRLs we can't parse
  - when recovering from CRL errors, allow anonymous authentication
    on second attempt, just like first attempt
  - when bootstrapping, restrict CA trust to only the one
    certificate subject needed, rather than a wildcard
