Date: Wed, 9 May 2012 04:37:03 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com, owl-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: [openwall-announce] new Owl-current snapshot Hi, A new snapshot of Owl-current is available, including ISO images, OpenVZ container templates, binary packages for i686 and x86_64, and indeed full sources. The new ISOs are linked right from the Owl homepage: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/ Significant changes since the previous set of ISOs and templates (October 26, 2011) include update of the Linux/OpenVZ kernel to one based on RHEL 5.8's, GCC update to 4.6.3, "gcc -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,-z,now" by default as a security hardening measure, John the Ripper 1.7.9+ with enabled OpenMP parallelization, AVX, and XOP support, move to ISOLINUX for the bootloader for the ISOs (lets us provide larger kernel images), building of glibc's UTF-8 locales by default (despite of the size increase), new versions of OpenSSL, lftp, strace, hdparm. Of these, the kernel and OpenSSL updates are security fixes (as it is usual for these components). The changes are documented in more detail here: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/CHANGES-current.shtml Alexander
