MyProxy 5.6 is now available from the MyProxy web site
(http://myproxy.ncsa.uiuc.edu/).

$ openssl sha1 < myproxy-5.6.tar.gz
9e1bb1e70c6f41810de91d47fa1cabd5c5f03538

Changes in this release:
- in myproxy-logon --voms, use voms-proxy-init -valid H:M rather
  than voms-proxy-init -hours H so proxy lifetime matches assertion
  lifetime
  (https://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/globus/show_bug.cgi?id=7244)
- on myproxy-server daemon startup, don't exit original process
  until daemon child has completed initialization
  (https://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/globus/show_bug.cgi?id=7240)
- improve myproxy-server pidfile creation: when root, write pidfile
  by default to /var/run/myproxy.pid; write pidfile on startup
  before detaching from parent process; lock pidfile to avoid
  collisions; remove pidfile on SIGTERM shutdown
  [LICENSE.pidfile added for pidfile.c from FreeBSD's libutil.]
  (https://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/globus/show_bug.cgi?id=7240)
- allow escaping of '.' in regular expressions
  (https://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/globus/show_bug.cgi?id=7213)
- when converting to POSIX extended regular expressions for DN
  matching, wrap the expression inside '^(' and ')$' instead of just
  '^' and '$' to ensure matching the entire DN using proper operator
  precedence
  (https://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/globus/show_bug.cgi?id=7215)
- add liblber to link line when using --with-openldap
  (https://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/globus/show_bug.cgi?id=7217)
- fix section number in myproxy-admin-query man page
  (https://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/globus/show_bug.cgi?id=7219)
- in myproxy-admin-load-credential, handle the case of running as
  root but /var/lib/myproxy owned by non-root by switching to the
  non-root user before writing the credential files
  (https://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/globus/show_bug.cgi?id=7234)
