[My apologies if you see this multiple times; we support four BSDs and Linux
now, and all these camps are known for tending to stay separate, even though
many hard-core hackers pay attention to some subset of them]

  After a year of development, the latest release of the NRL IPv6+IPsec
software is now available to the public. As the name suggests, this software is
an implementation of IP Version 6 and IP Security (separately and together).

  This version supports:

    BSD/OS 4.0 on x86 (supplements our code previously merged into 4.0)
    OpenBSD 2.3 and 2.4 on x86 and sparc (a more integrated version of this
      release is now in OpenBSD's CVS tree; you need userland from this kit)
    NetBSD 1.3.2 and 1.3.3 on x86 and sparc
    FreeBSD 3.0 on x86
    Linux 2.1 on x86 (for PF_KEY only)

  This release adds a lot of ports, updates the code to conform to newer
versions of many specs (which effectively meant rewriting portions of the
code), and includes a lot of general cleanups and improvements.
