Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.2 (usg-unix-v)
I'm happy to announce a new release of GNU lsh, an implementation of the
secure shell protocols. This is a maintenance release, with no new
News for the 2.1 release
No longer includes the Nettle library; GNU Nettle has to be
installed separately. At least version 2.2 is needed.
Available at ftp.gnu.org.
Includes several improvements from debian maintainer Magnus
* Make lsh exit properly on connection failure.
* Improved lsh error message when seed file doesn't exist.
* Make lshd set the IPV6_V6ONLY option when binding IPv6
Uses a more recent version of automake, avoiding a
vulnerability in the automake-generated distcheck target.
Use service name "lshd" in lsh-pam-checkpw (patch from Ludovic
Fixed an utmp-related build problem on GNU/Linux x86_64.
Testsuite includes new versions of tcpconnect and mini-inetd,
which work better with IPv6.
Available at ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/lsh/lsh-2.1.tar.gz.
Development of LSH have seen slow progress in recent years, for various
reasons. I'm working towards lsh-3.0, and users and developers are
encouraged to check out the development version. The client side of the
development version is pretty solid, I'm using it daily since a long
time. The server side has seen less testing. An (old) summary of
differences between 2.x and the development version can be found at
http://lists.lysator.liu.se/pipermail/lsh-bugs/2007q2/000598.html, and a
list of important things that remain to do is maintained at
I'd be happy to see a new co-maintainer or maintainer for LSH, to help
move the project forward. Please mail me if you are interested.
Non-maintainer contributions are of course also welcome.
The LSH homepage, http://www.lysator.liu.se/~nisse/lsh/, includes
information about the psst mailinglist, the public git repoitory, as
well as the online manual.
