The ISOs are also available via direct download links right off the Owl homepage: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/ http://www.openwall.com/Owl/DOWNLOAD.shtml We have updated Owl to use OpenVZ's latest kernel from their "rhel5" branch (released on 03/18), with RHEL5 patches further updated from Red Hat's latest stable kernel (released on 03/16) and with some minor changes of our own. Thus, we're ahead of OpenVZ official kernels in terms of security fixes right now, and there have been quite a few of those lately... The packages of gzip, VIM, tcb, JtR, tcsh, quota, passwdqc, libnids, pciutils, hdparm, and tar have been updated to new versions or patchlevels, and changes have been made to several other packages (cpio, glibc, bash to name a few). Please refer to the Owl-current change log for more information on some of the changes: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/CHANGES-current.shtml As usual, minor changes are only documented in those packages' change logs. Additionally, this time all packages have been rebuilt to ensure that we avoid any surprises as we get closer to making a new release. Alexander
