Breaking Changes in Shield 1.3.0

  • The sha2 and apr1 hashing algorithms have been removed as options for the cache.hash_algo setting. If your existing Shield installation uses either of these options, remove the setting and use the default ssha256 algorithm.
  • The users file now only supports bcrypt password hashing. All existing passwords stored using the esusers tool have been hashed with bcrypt and are not affected.
