Projects / kredentials


Kredentials is a KDE systray applet for keeping Kerberos and AFS authentication tokens current. Each hour it renews Kerberos tickets and (optionally) obtains new AFS tokens, and it notifies the user upon final ticket expiration.

    Release Notes: Some bugfixes to make it better conform to KDE standards. The menu item to destroy tickets had inadvertently been disabled; it's now re-enabled. The option to use 'aklog' to renew AFS tokens when renewing tickets is now configurable.

      Release Notes: The applet was ported to the KDE 4.x environment. A bug that caused problems when using Kredentials to obtain initial tickets (as opposed to renewing tickets that had previously been obtained using kinit or PAM) was fixed. A bit nore testing is required. The old 0.9.x branch will continue to support for KDE 3.x if there's sufficient demand, but it won't generally get a lot of attention.

        Release Notes: Build problems with gcc 4.4 were fixed. A problem in which the configure script failed to properly detect recent versions of MIT Kerberos5 was fixed. Miscellaneous other Debian packaging fixes were made.

        •  19 Mar 2007 17:49

          Release Notes: The ability to destroy cached credentials and get new credentials using a password was added. Memory leaks were fixed.

          •  16 Nov 2006 00:47

            Release Notes: Correct corruption of the panel icons that was caused by a conversion of the source repository from CVS to SVN. admin/ has been updated to properly handle newer versions of autoconf and friends.

            Download link on does not work. Between 2.0 pre1 and pre2 you changed the archive name from kredentials_2.0... to kredentials-2.0... (uderscore -> hyphen). Please fix it. It would be a pity if your project would not get the attention it could because of a small thing like this :-)

            In Pardus[0], We made some patches[1] for turkish-translate and translatable strings in kredentials.

            I wanted to give notice for it. Maybe you want to take this patches.

            Best Regards..
