Updated: OpenSSH-3.8.1p1-1

I've just updated the version of OpenSSH to 3.8.1p1-1.

This is an official new release, based on the vanilla sources.

There's a Cygwin related patch in it, not noted below, which allows
pubkey authentication also on Cygwin systems running with CYGWIN=nontsec.

The official release message as of today:

OpenSSH 3.8.1p1 has just been released. It will be available from
the mirrors listed at shortly.

This release is a bug-fix release for the portable version. There are
no feature additions and no corresponding OpenBSD-only release.

OpenSSH is a 100% complete SSH protocol version 1.3, 1.5 and 2.0
implementation and includes sftp client and server support.

We would like to thank the OpenSSH community for their continued
support to the project, especially those who contributed source, help
with testing and have bought T-shirts or posters.

We have a new design of T-shirt available, more info on

For international orders use
and for European orders, use
