    But seriously, it looks like a great set of improvements. It is also great to have a new stable choice for mail transfer.

    Subject: Announce: OpenSMTPD 5.3.1 released []

    OpenSMTPD 5.3.1 has just been released and the archives are available at
    our main site:

    OpenSMTPD is a FREE implementation of the SMTP protocol with some common
    extensions. It allows ordinary machines to exchange e-mails with systems
    speaking the SMTP protocol. It implements a fairly large part of RFC5321
    and can already cover a large range of use-cases.

    It runs on OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD, DragonFlyBSD, MacOSX and Linux.

    OpenSMTPD presentation is here [].

    My favorite improvements:

    * OpenSMTPd - can't have too many solid mail servers out there
    * OpenSSH 6.2 - new crypto algorithms and other goodies
    * pf improvements - sloppy state tracking for ICMP
    * relayd and OpenBGPd improvements

    now the question is: how long until those trickle down to sister projects like FreeBSD or Debian/kFreeBSD?

    That is actually not the logo of OpenBSD but FreeBSD. I don't know why that logo is put there. The OpenBSD logo is more like this [].
