Works Well
By , for WP 4.1.1

Works well. Had to modify the Login/Logout paths to work with mod_auth_mellon (RHEL 6.6+).

Tested it with User Role Editor, and this plugin does recognize that new Roles exist, letting you map a new CN to that Role.

Weak Security Model, No Developer Response
By , for WP 3.9.1

As first mentioned in this support thread post: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/shibboleth-options-on-multisite-wordpress-installation?replies=6 this Shibboleth plugin provides inadequate security by allowing any administrator of a multisite installation to alter global settings for the site.

It's also not a good sign when there is no response from the developers. Although an update was released in April, it doesn't look like this plugin gets regular support from the developers.
