Support for any database model for managing users and groups.
Storage of passwords as plain text or using any message
digest as supported by Java's
This means that the encoding property for MD5
encoding that was previously "MD5HEX" must now be "MD5".
Support for a seed in the encoding where the seed for a
specific user is retrieved from the database. When a seed is
used the password is encoded together with the user-specific
seed to prevent dictionary attacks. The way the seed is used
together with the password is configured using a format string.
No future release is planned yet. Please send feedback on
error, improvements, and new features to me.
Configuration of the caching of groups. At the moment no caching is done.
