I've updated the version of OpenSSH to 3.5p1-2.

This version provides several fixes:

- ssh-host-config now creates sshd_config according to the latest
  changes to OpenSSH.

- The 3.5-1 version missed the patch to the 3.4-5 version, which
  figured the ntsec default setting by the API minor version number.
  For some reason this patch never made it into the official sources.

- OpenSSH is now compiled using the -fno-builtin-memset setting which
  prevents gcc from inlining and then optimizing away the memset(3) call.
  This is a potential measure against keeping cleartext keys, passphrases
  and passwords in memory accidentally.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your  
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Net" and
then click on the appropriate field until the above announced version
number appears if it is not displayed already.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.
