Introduction of the Privilege system. This is a major feature of linuxconf.
You can now distribute different administrative privileges to normal users.
Currently linuxconf implement few privileges (10). It is now very easy
to define and implement new one. For each privilege (and for each user)
you can define if it is granted and if the user must supply his password.
On personnal workstation at home, most will select not to supply the
password. On a secure environnement, this will be the other way.
Again this is a major feature and the reason why 1.7r4 has been published
is to get some comment and suggestion about other privilege. Implementing
new ones is really easy (around 4-5 lines of code per new privileges).
A new widget was defined to support this concept. It is a an horizontal
radio button. It look really nice in web mode btw.
To see what is available, go configure a user account and you will
see the list.
