     50      The <code>net.sf.basedb.core.authentication.Authenticator</code>
     51      interface and other related code that was deprecated in BASE 3.3
     52      has been removed. Systems that still use old authentication code
     53      need to replace this with a newer version before updating.

     58      The authentication system has been updated to make it easier to
     59      install more than one external authentication manager. The changes
     60      are backwards compatible and existing authentication managers should
     61      still work as before as long as they are the only ones installed.
     62      However, the existing authentication managers will probably not work
     63      well if more than one is installed since they lack some features that
     64      are neccessary in order to cooperate with other managers. Before installing
     65      more than one authentication manager it is recommended that they are
     66      updated to newer versions.
     67    </para>
     69    <para>
     70      Newer authentication managers typically no longer provide support for
     71      password authentication. If the intention is that some users still should be
     72      able to login with username+password, it is recommended that the
     73      <guilabel>Password login form</guilabel> is enabled. Go to
     74      <menuchoice>
     75        <guimenu>Administrate</guimenu>
     76        <guisubmenu>Plug-ins &amp; extensions</guisubmenu>
     77        <guimenuitem>Overview</guimenuitem>
     78      </menuchoice> and locate the <guilabel>Login form customization</guilabel>
     79      extension point to find it.
