There are two security changes in the API that I know of, they support
principal-based policies and domain consolidation, or something like
that. But they do not affect the operation of JAAS, you can get the same
functionality from JAAS in 1.2 and 1.3.

Tell me about it :-)

Heard about it, but have not yet seen it. If 1.1.8 is any indication,
IBM's 1.2 will run faster than Sun's 1.3, which means I would rather see
1.2 supported even when Sun's 1.3 is shipping on all platforms.
