Subject: [openwall-announce] Owl-current 2011/07/27 ISOs & OpenVZ container templates

Hi,

A new "development" snapshot of Openwall GNU/*/Linux is available,
including ISO images, OpenVZ container templates, binary packages for
i686 and x86_64, and indeed the source code.  The ISOs may be downloaded
via direct links from:

http://www.openwall.com/Owl/

Significant changes since the previous set of ISOs and templates
(generated on March 12) include updates of the RHEL5/OpenVZ Linux
kernel, strace, Nmap, John the Ripper, iputils, iproute2, and LILO to
new versions, security fixes and security-relevant enhancements to Owl's
packages of the kernel, iptables, RPM, glibc (crypt_blowfish upgrade),
and addition of limited support for LSISAS8208ELP disk controllers.
As usual, the change log describes these in more detail:

A similar update of Owl 3.0-stable is planned, which is yet another
reason for you to try this Owl-current snapshot out and provide your
feedback.  (Some of the most recent changes have received very light
testing only so far.)

Thanks,

Alexander
