Item posted by Sergey Poznyakoff <gray> on Sat Oct 21 17:16:36 2006.

GNU inetutils version 1.5 is available from ftp://ftp.gnu.org and its mirrors worldwide. The short list of changes since the previous release follows:

  • Various bugs fixes and clean ups.
  • inetd
    • New option --environment enables passing client/server data via

environment variables.

    • New option --resolve enables resolving IP addresses before passing

them via environment.

    • Allows numeric port names as service names
    • inetd now creates a PID file
  • rcp now supports the -V option
  • rshd/rexecd now switches to the users home directory after

authentication.

  • rlogin now supports XON/XOFF without needing -8.
  • syslogd now can actually disable forwarding.
  • talk allows the use of 8-bit ASCII.
  • telnet not subject to certain DNS spoofing techniques that could possibly foil Kerberos authentication.
