Here is an excerpt from the release notes.
The ``possible attack'' message would be logged more often
than necessary if you are using Pine as a user agent.
The wrong host would be reported in the ``possible attack''
message when attempted from IDENT.
In some cases the syslog buffer could be overflowed when
reporting the ``possible attack'' message. This can
cause denial of service attacks. Truncate the message
to 80 characters to prevent this problem.
When reading the IDENT response a loop is needed around the
read from the network to ensure that you don't get
Password entries without any shell listed (that is, a null
shell) wouldn't match as "ok". Problem noted by
When running BIND 4.9.x a problem could occur because the
_res.options field is initialized differently than it
was historically -- this requires that sendmail call
res_init before it tweaks any bits.
Fix an incompatibility in openxscript() between the file open mode
and the stdio mode passed to fdopen. This caused UnixWare
2.0 to have conniptions. Fix from Martin Sohnius of
Novell Labs Europe.
Fix problem with static linking of local getopt routine when
using GNU's ld command. Fix from John Kennedy of
Cal State Chico.
It was possible to turn off privacy flags. Problem noted by
Be more paranoid about writing files. Suggestions by *Hobbit*
and Liudvikas Bukys.
MAKEMAP: fixes for 64 bit machines (DEC Alphas in particular)
from Spider Boardman.
CONFIG: No changes (version number only, to keep it in sync
with the binaries).
