I sent the release email for passwd 3.1.1 semi-manually yesterday  
because of some problems announcing the release to freshmeat (which  
had been worked around in HEAD but not FW3 for the release scripts).  
Because of this, there were some missing links and missing checksums  
in the email. Here is the correct version:

The Horde Team is pleased to announce the final release of the Passwd Horde
password changing application version H3 (3.1.1).

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 Passwd version H3 (3.1) are:
      * SECURITY: Fix XSS when specifying an invalid backend key
        (security at davidwharton.us, #8398).
      * A new SOAP driver.

The full list of changes (from version H3 (3.1)) can be viewed here:
