$ openssl sha1 < myproxy-5.4.tar.gz

PLEASE NOTE: The default behavior for the myproxy-server.config cert_dir
option has changed in this release:
http://lists.globus.org/pipermail/myproxy-user/2011-March/000231.html

Changes in this release:
- support disabling reverse DNS lookup of server hostname in MyProxy
  clients by setting the environment variable
  GLOBUS_GSSAPI_NAME_COMPATIBILITY to STRICT_RFC2818
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6789)
- prefer to link with libvomsapi instead of libvomsc
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7133)
- fix double-free in myproxy_install_trusted_cert_files() on write error
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7135)
- add myproxy-test -generatecerts option and remove dependency on $HOME
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7139)
- myproxy-server trustroots security improvements:
  - cert_dir no longer defaults to /etc/grid-security/certificates.
  - Server will ignore requests for trustroots if cert_dir is not
    defined.
  - Server will refuse to start if the trustroots directory set using
    cert_dir contains any regular files that are not world-readable.
  - Once started, the server will skip (i.e. will not return to client)
    any regular files found later to NOT have world-readable
    permissions.
- fix GPT dependency on globus_proxy_utils package
  (http://bugzilla.globus.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7151)
