The Horde Team is pleased to announce the first release candidate of  
the Passwd
Horde password changing application version H3 (3.1).

Passwd provides fairly complete support for changing passwords via Poppassd,
LDAP, Unix expect scripts, the Unix smbpasswd command for SMB/CIFS passwords,
Kolab, ADSI, Pine, Serv-U FTP, VMailMgr, vpopmail, and SQL passwords.

The major changes compared to the Passwd version H3 (3.0) are:

     * Added expect support for sudo and for the PECL expect extension
     * Added support for switching passwords from one encryption scheme
       to another
     * Better accessibility
     * Added Turkish translation
