here it is. as far as i understand, there's no real serious item
that require upgrade. i guess we can upgrade after the pkg freeze.

Subject: OpenSSH 2.9
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
OpenSSH 2.9 has just been uploaded. It will be available from the
mirrors listed at http://www.openssh.com/ shortly.
OpenSSH is a 100% complete SSH protocol version 1.3, 1.5 and 2.0
implementation and includes sftp client and server support.
This release contains many portability bug-fixes (listed in the
ChangeLog) as well as several new features (listed below).
We would like to thank the OpenSSH community for their continued
support and encouragement.
WARNING: SSH protocol v2 is now the default protocol version
use the 'Protocol' option from ssh(1) and sshd(8) if
you want to change this.
SSH protocol v2 implementation adds support for:
HostbasedAuthentication, similar to RhostsRSA in SSH protocol
Rekeying (negotiate new encryption keys for the current SSH
session, try ~R in interactive SSH sessions)
updated DH group exchange:
client option HostKeyAlgorithms
server options ClientAliveInterval and ClientAliveCountMax
tty mode passing
gid swapping in sshd (fixes access to /home/group/user based
Dan Kaminsky <firstname.lastname@example.org> contributed an experimental
SOCKS4 proxy to the ssh client (yes, client not the server).
Use 'ssh -D 1080 server' if you want to try this out.
server option PrintLastLog
improvements for scp > 2GB
improved ListenAddress option.
You can now use ListenAddress host:port
improved interoperability (bug detection for older implementations)
OpenSSH is brought to you by Markus Friedl, Niels Provos, Theo de Raadt,
