Damien Miller just announced the good news of a great new version of OpenSSH! This version has some really nice new features, like per-user authentication config. Read on for changes, new features, and more fun stuff...
OpenSSH 4.6 has just been released. It will be available from the mirrors listed at http://www.openssh.com/ shortly. OpenSSH is a 100% complete SSH protocol version 1.3, 1.5 and 2.0 implementation and includes sftp client and server support. Once again, we would like to thank the OpenSSH community for their continued support of the project, especially those who contributed code or patches, reported bugs, tested snapshots and purchased T-shirts or posters. T-shirt, poster and CD sales directly support the project. Pictures and more information can be found at: http://www.openbsd.org/tshirts.html and http://www.openbsd.org/orders.html For international orders use http://https.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/order and for European orders, use http://https.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/order.eu Changes since OpenSSH 4.5: ============================ * sshd now allows the enabling and disabling of authentication methods on a per user, group, host and network basis via the Match directive in sshd_config. * The following bugs have been fixed in this release: - Clear SIGALRM when restarting due to SIGHUP. Prevents stray signal from taking down sshd if a connection was pending at the time SIGHUP was received - sftp returned a zero exit status when upload failed due to write errors (bugzilla #1252) - fixed an inconsistent check for a terminal when displaying scp progress meter (bugzilla #1265) - Parsing of time values in Match blocks was incorrectly applied to the global configuration (bugzilla #1275) - Allow multiple forwarding options to work when specified in a PermitOpen directive (bugzilla #1267) - Interoperate with ssh.com versions that do not support binding remote port forwarding sessions to a hostname (bugzilla #1019) * Portable OpenSSH bugs fixed: - "hang on exit" when background processes are running at the time of exit on a ttyful/login session (bugzilla #52) - Fix typos in the ssh-rand-helper(8) man page (bugzilla #1259) - Check that some SIG records have been returned in getrrsetbyname (bugzilla #1281) - Fix contrib/findssl for platforms that lack "which" (bugzilla #1237) - Work around bug in OpenSSL 0.9.8e that broke aes256-ctr, aes192-ctr, arcfour256 (bugzilla #1291) Checksums: ========== - SHA1 (openssh-4.6.tar.gz) = c1700845be464a769428f34ef727c1f530728afc - SHA1 (openssh-4.6p1.tar.gz) = b2aefeb1861b4688b1777436035239ec32a47da8 Reporting Bugs: =============== - please read http://www.openssh.com/report.html and http://bugzilla.mindrot.org/ OpenSSH is brought to you by Markus Friedl, Niels Provos, Theo de Raadt, Kevin Steves, Damien Miller, Darren Tucker, Jason McIntyre, Tim Rice and Ben Lindstrom.[Edited to correct OpenSSH 0.9.6e to OpenSSL 0.9.8e -dwc]
