GSI-OpenSSH 5.0, based on OpenSSH 5.3p1, is now available from:

  http://grid.ncsa.uiuc.edu/ssh/download.html

For installation instructions, please see:

  http://grid.ncsa.uiuc.edu/ssh/install.html

We appreciate your feedback and help in testing this version.
Please use Bugzilla to report GSI-OpenSSH bugs:

  http://bugzilla.globus.org/globus/enter_bug.cgi?product=GSI-OpenSSH

Notes:

  * Starting in this release, GSI-OpenSSH must be linked with the
    globus_usage library. If your GSI-OpenSSH install fails because
    the globus_usage library is not installed in $GLOBUS_LOCATION,
    please use the Globus Toolkit installer to add the missing
    library, with the command "make globus_usage install".

  * We'll be releasing a GSI patch for OpenSSH 5.4p1 soon.

Major changes:

  * Incorporate usage reporting functionality from the Globus Metrics
    project to help us collect generic statistics about your use of
    GSI-OpenSSH. Additional details are available at
    <http://grid.ncsa.uiuc.edu/ssh/privacy.html>.

  * Drop support for the pre-RFC4462 external-keyx and gssapi
    authentication methods.

  * Update to OpenSSH 5.3p1.

  * Support cascading credentials for GSI.

  * Disable OpenSSL version consistency check by default (i.e.,
    --without-openssl-header-check) because it routinely fails on MacOS.

  * Update to 20100124 patch from Simon Wilkinson.
    http://www.sxw.org.uk/computing/patches/openssh.html

  * Fix support for --with-privsep-path configure option.
