Cryptsetup 1.6.1 Release Notes
==============================

Changes since version 1.6.0

* Fix loop-AES keyfile parsing.
   Loop-AES keyfile should be text keyfile, reject keyfiles which
   are not properly terminated.

* Fix passphrase pool overflow for too long TCRYPT passphrase.
   (Maximal TCRYPT passphrase length is 64 characters.)

* Return EPERM (translated to exit code 2) for too long TCRYPT passphrase.

* Fix deactivation of device when failed underlying node disappeared.

* Fix API deactivate call for TCRYPT format and NULL context parameter.

* Improve keyslot checker example documentation.

* Report error message if deactivation fails and device is still busy.

* Make passphrase prompts more consistent (and remove "LUKS" form prompt).

* Fix some missing headers (compilation failed with alternative libc).

* Remove non-functional API UUID support for plain and loopaes devices.
   (For not persistent activation UUID.)

* Properly cleanup devices on interrupt in api-test.

* Support all tests run if kernel is in FIPS mode.
