Subject[ANNOUNCE] autofs 5.1.1 release
From
Date
Hi all,

The thing to watch out for in this release is a change made to program
map execution environments. The standard environment added at program
map execution introduced a security problem when interpreted languages
like python were used. By default, a prefix is now added to these names
to avoid the problem and, for those that wish to force the use of
standard
names, a configuration option has been added to do that.

autofs
======

The package can be found at:

ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/daemons/autofs/v5

It is autofs-5.1.1.tar.[gz|xz]

No source rpm is there as it can be produced by using:

rpmbuild -ts autofs-5.1.1.tar.gz

and the binary rpm by using:

rpmbuild -tb autofs-5.1.1.tar.gz

See the README.amd-maps file for information about using amd format
maps.

Here are the entries from the CHANGELOG which outline the updates:
