+0.37 - Wed Sept 24 2003 19:42:12 +0800
+
+- Various portability fixes, fixes for Solaris 9, Tru64 5.1, Mac OS X 10.2,
+  AIX, BSDs
+
+- Updated LibTomMath to 0.27 and LibTomCrypt to 0.90
+
+- Renamed util.{c,h} to dbutil.{c,h} to avoid conflicts with system util.h
+
+- Added some small changes so it'll work with AIX (plus Linux Affinity).
+  Thanks to Shig for them.
+
+- Improved the closing messages, so a clean exit is "Exited normally"
+

+  integer overflows
+
+- X11 forwarding fixed for OSX, path for xauth changed to /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth
+
+- Channel code handles closing more nicely, doesn't sit waiting for an extra
+  keystroke on BSD/OSX platforms, and data is flushed fully before closing
+  child processes (thanks to 
+  Cristian Ionescu-Idbohrn <cristian.ionescu-idbohrn at axis.com> for
+  pointing that out).
+
+- Changed "DISABLE_TCPFWD" to "ENABLE_TCPFWD" (and for x11/auth) so
+  "disable DISABLE_TCPWD" isn't so confusing.
+
+- Fix authorized_keys handling (don't crash on too-long keys, and
+  use fgetc not getc to avoid strange macro-related issues), thanks to
+  Cristian Ionescu-Idbohrn <cristian.ionescu-idbohrn at axis.com> 
+  and Steve Rodgers <hwstar at cox.net> for reporting and testing.
+
+- Fixes to the README with regard to uClibc systems, thanks to 
+  Cristian Ionescu-Idbohrn <cristian.ionescu-idbohrn at axis.com>,
+  as well as general improvements to documentation (split README/INSTALL)

+  DSS or RSA were disabled, reported by Patrik Karlsson <patrik at cqure.net>
+
+- Fix double-free bug for hostkeys, reported by
+  Vincent Sanders <vince at kyllikki.org>
+
+- Fix up missing \ns from dropbearconvert help message,
+  thanks to Mordy Ovits <movits at bloomberg.com> for the patch
+
+0.36 - Tue August 19 2003 12:16:23 +0800

+
+- Fixed some invalid assertions in the channel code, fixing the server dying
+  when forwarding X11 connections.
+- Add dropbearconvert to convert to/from OpenSSH host keys and Dropbear keys

+  Grahame (grahame at angrygoats.net)

+- Various minor bugfixes/code size improvements etc
+

+- Shell is started as a proper login shell, so /etc/profile etc is sourced
+- Ptys work on Solaris (2.8 x86 tested) now
+- Fixed bug in specifying the rsa hostkey
+- Fixed bug in compression code, could trigger if compression resulted in
+  larger output than input (uncommon but possible).
+

+
