          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

* sshd(8) now supports forced changes of expired passwords via
  /usr/bin/passwd or keyboard-interactive authentication.

  Note for AIX: sshd will now deny password access to accounts with
  passwords expired longer than their maxexpired attribute.  For
  details, see the AIX section in README.platform.

* ssh(1) now uses untrusted cookies for X11-Forwarding.
  Some X11 applications might need full access to the X11 server,
  see ForwardX11Trusted in ssh(1) and xauth(1) for more information.

* ssh(1) now supports sending application layer
  keep-alive messages to the server.  See ServerAliveInterval
  in ssh(1) for more information.

* Improved sftp(1) batch file support.

* New KerberosGetAFSToken option for sshd(8).

* Updated /etc/moduli file and improved performance for
  protocol version 2.

* Support for host keys in DNS (draft-ietf-secsh-dns-xx.txt).
  Please see README.dns in the source distribution for details.

* Fix a number of memory leaks.

* The experimental "gssapi" support has been replaced with
  the "gssapi-with-mic" to fix possible MITM attacks.
  The two versions are not compatible.
