    4546== Module Options ==
    4647
    47 Version 0.17 introduces authentication module options so that each authentication module can specify options to configure its behaviour.
    4848The same module may be used with different types of sockets (tcp-auth vs auth), each with a different set of options.

    6363== Password File ==
    6464
    65 In versions before 0.17, the password file could contain a single password or multiple usernames and passwords. This was confusing and error prone, which is why 0.17 has distinct modules for each use case: "file" and "multifile". See #1159 for details.
    66 
    67 For more information on the multifile password file format, see [/ProxyServer#FileAuthenticationExtras proxy server file authentication].
     65"file" vs "multifile":
     66* "file" contains a single password, the whole file is the password
     67* "multifile" contains a list of authentication values, see [/ProxyServer#FileAuthenticationExtras proxy server file authentication].
