We are planning on doing one of our regular OpenSSH releases (4.6/4.6p1)
some time next week. This is a mostly a bugfix release, but there is
one new feature:
sshd now allows the enabling and disabling of authentication methods on
a per user, group, host and network basis via the Match directive in
The bugs fixed are:
#52 ssh hangs on exit.
#1252 sftp returns 0 when upload is unsuccessful due to a full device.
#1259 small typos in ssh-rand-helper(8).
#1265 SCP progress doesn't map to standard out or standard error.
#1275 Config parsing (parse_time) in Host: context acts globally.
#1281 getrrsetbyname() does not check the presence of SIG records.
#1283 findssl assumes existence of 'which'.
#1267 PermitOpen - Multiple forwards don't works
plus many more small fixes and man page tweaks. Thanks to all who
More detail may be found in the ChangeLog in the portable OpenSSH

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
