Thank you very much for the good news !
Indeed, the 3rd party SSH vendors are at fault here and they should fix their stuff, but realistically speaking, many new releases of OpenSSH will be delivered until the commercial vendors will fix their problems and the existing installations will be updated.

Thanks again, keep up the good work !
