New version of Owl security-enhanced operating system

Openwall GNU/*/Linux (or Owl for short) is a free security-enhanced operating system with Linux and GNU software as its core, compatible with other major distributions of GNU/*/Linux. It is intended as a server platform.

Changes in this version:

  • The default kernel has been updated to Linux 2.4.37.6-ow1.
  • The userland’s support for Linux 2.6.x kernels has been made official.
  • The vsftpd, iptables, passwdqc, cpio, e2fsprogs, strace, VIM, and xinetd packages have been updated to new versions since last month’s ISO snapshots.
  • New ISO images have been generated for x86 and x86-64.

Owl is available for download here.
