Date: Fri, 3 Sep 2010 07:59:21 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com, owl-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: new Owl ISOs & OpenVZ templates Hi, There's a fresh snapshot of Owl-current (generated a few hours ago) available on our FTP mirrors: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/DOWNLOAD.shtml (so far, it has propagated to mirrors.kernel.org and to several other mirrors). Besides the full source code, this includes pre-built packages, ISOs, and OpenVZ container templates for i686 and x86-64. As usual, there are also direct download links to the ISOs on the Owl homepage: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/ In this snapshot, the kernel has been updated to OpenVZ's latest from their "RHEL5 testing" branch (2.6.18-194.11.3.el5.028stab071.3) with minor additional changes. Some of the changes made in Red Hat's -194.11.3, which this kernel builds upon, are security fixes. The relevant links are included in the Owl-current change log entry: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/CHANGES-current.shtml CD bootup and the installer have been improved some further. (Yes, the bug with autodetection of boot CD on IDE slaves is now fixed.) The e2fsprogs, diffutils, bison, man-pages, man, diffstat, gawk, cdrkit, iptables, sed, grep, ltrace, hdparm, mktemp, vsftpd, acct, file, and m4 packages have been updated to new upstream versions. This is mostly due to work by our new core team member, Vasiliy Kulikov. Although many packages have been updated, we've been careful to make only those updates that we found "safe enough" to make when Owl-current is in a stable state (approaching a release). Assorted minor improvements have been made and/or bugfixes applied to several other packages. As usual, any feedback is welcome on the owl-users mailing list. Alexander
