+
+- SECURITY: Fix for PAM auth so that usernames are logged and conversation
+  function responses are allocated correctly - all 0.44test4 users with PAM
+  compiled in (not default) are advised to upgrade.
+
+- Fix calls to getnameinfo() for compatibility with Solaris
+
+- Pristine compilation works (run 'configure' from a fresh dir and make it
+  there)
+
+- Fixes for compiling with most options disabled.
+
+- Upgraded to LibTomCrypt 0.99 and LibTomMath 0.32
+
+- Make sure that zeroing out of values in LTM and LTC won't get optimised away
+
+- Removed unused functions from loginrec.c
+
+- /dev/random is now the default entropy source rather than /dev/urandom
+
+- Logging of IPs in auth success/failure messages for improved greppability
 
 - Fix dbclient so that "scp -i keyfile" works. (It can handle "-ikeyfile
   properly)
 
-- Fix for PAM auth so that usernames are logged and conversation function
-  responses are allocated correctly.
-
 - Avoid a race in server shell-handling code which prevents the exit-code
-  from being returned to the client.
+  from being returned to the client in some circumstances.
 
 - Makefile modified so that install target works correctly (doesn't try
   to install "all" binary) - patch from Juergen Daubert

 The Dropbear distribution includes a standalone version of OpenSSH's scp
 program. You can compile it with "make scp", you may want to change the path

 the progress meter isn't compiled in to save space, you can enable it by 
 adding 'SCPPROGRESS=1' to the make commandline.

 If you are compiling statically, you may want to disable zlib, as it will use
 a few tens of kB of binary-size (./configure --disable-zlib).
