MyProxy 5.5 is now available from the MyProxy web site

$ openssl sha1 < myproxy-5.5.tar.gz

Changes in this release:
- undo escaping of POSIX extended regular expression meta-characters
  in myproxy-server authorization policies (introduced in v5.1)
  to enable full use of POSIX ERE capabilities. For literal matching
  of parentheses and brackets, the characters must again be
  explicitly escaped (i.e., '\(' and '\)'). Non-POSIX handling of
  wildcard characters ('*' and '?') is maintained for backward
  compatibility, so these characters must be escaped if POSIX ERE
  behavior is desired.
- in MyProxy CA, ensure that any domainComponent or emailAddress
  components in the certificate subject are type IA5String per RFC 5280
- add myproxy-logon --certreq option, to accept an externally
  generated certificate request rather than generating private key
  and request internally
- in myproxy-server, fix abort when processing INFO response when
  the user has stored credentials both with and without a credential
  name; bug was introduced in myproxy-server v4.9
- use /var/lib/myproxy as first choice default storage directory,
  for Filesystem Hierarchy Standard compliance; still fallback to
  /var/myproxy and $GLOBUS_LOCATION/var/myproxy for alternatives
- fix erroneous error message when no VOMS attributes found
