    OpenSSH 8.5p1 is almost ready for release, so we would appreciate testing
    on as many platforms and systems as possible. This is a bugfix release.


     * sshd(8): implement client address-based rate-limiting via new
       sshd_config(5) PerSourceMaxStartups and PerSourceNetBlockSize
       directives that fine-grained control than the global MaxStartups

The sshd_config(5) man page has these new options listed after PidFile, whereas they should be listed before.
