Major changes between sudo 1.9.4 and 1.9.3p1

 * The sudoers parser will now detect when an upper-case reserved
   word is used when declaring an alias.  Now instead of "syntax
   error, unexpected CHROOT, expecting ALIAS" the message will be
   "syntax error, reserved word CHROOT used as an alias name".
   Bug #941.

 * Better handling of sudoers files without a final newline.
   The parser now adds a newline at end-of-file automatically which
   removes the need for special cases in the parser.

 * Fixed a regression introduced in sudo 1.9.1 in the sssd back-end
   where an uninitialized pointer could be freed on an error path.
   GitHub issue #67.

 * The core logging code is now shared between sudo_logsrvd and
   the sudoers plugin.

 * JSON log entries sent to syslog now use "minimal" JSON which
   skips all non-essential whitespace.

 * The sudoers plugin can now produce JSON-formatted logs.  The
   "log_format" sudoers option can be used to select sudo or json
   format logs.  The default is sudo format logs.

 * The sudoers plugin and visudo now display the column number in
   syntax error messages in addition to the line number.  Bug #841.

 * If I/O logging is not enabled but "log_servers" is set, the
   sudoers plugin will now log accept events to sudo_logsrvd.
   Previously, the accept event was only sent when I/O logging was
   enabled.  The sudoers plugin now sends reject and alert events too.

 * The sudo logsrv protocol has been extended to allow an AlertMessage
   to contain an optional array of InfoMessage, as AcceptMessage
   and RejectMessage already do.

 * Fixed a bug in sudo_logsrvd where receipt of SIGHUP would result
   in duplicate entries in the debug log when debugging was enabled.

 * The visudo utility now supports EDITOR environment variables
   that use single or double quotes in the command arguments.
   Bug #942.

 * The PAM session modules now run when sudo is set-user-ID root,
   which allows a module to determine the original user-ID.
   Bug #944.

 * Fixed a regression introduced in sudo 1.8.24 in the LDAP back-end
   where sudoNotBefore and sudoNotAfter were applied even when the
   SUDOERS_TIMED setting was not present in ldap.conf.  Bug #945.

 * Sudo packages for macOS 11 now contain universal binaries that
   support both Intel and Apple Silicon CPUs.

 * For sudo_logsrvd, an empty value for the "pid_file" setting in
   sudo_logsrvd.conf will now disable the process ID file.
