We would like to thank the OpenSSH community for their continued
support and encouragement.
Changes since OpenSSH 3.2.3:
improved support for privilege separation:
privilege separation is now enabled by default
See UsePrivilegeSeparation in sshd_config(5)
and http://www.citi.umich.edu/u/provos/ssh/privsep.html for more
ssh no longer needs to be installed setuid root for protocol
version 2 hostbased authentication, see ssh-keysign(8).
protocol version 1 rhosts-rsa authentication still requires privileges
and is not recommended.
- documentation for the client and server configuration options have
been moved to ssh_config(5) and sshd_config(5).
- the server now supports the Compression option, see sshd_config(5).
- the client options RhostsRSAAuthentication and RhostsAuthentication now
default to no, see ssh_config(5).
- the client options FallBackToRsh and UseRsh are deprecated.
- ssh-agent now supports locking and timeouts for keys, see ssh-add(1).
- ssh-agent can now bind to unix-domain sockets given on the command line,
- fixes problems with valid RSA signatures from putty clients.
