12:23 AM - Security update for random IP id, mports work

First, a security update was applied to CURRENT for users who turn on the random IP id feature. It is off by default. This feature has a flaw in the random id generation.


Second, we've updated a large number of ports in the last few days. The astro, archivers, accessibility, and net (except samba3) ports have been updated with the latest versions where possible. I'm currently working on the audio category.

Progress on Gnome 2.20 is still going strong as well. ctriv had a bit of a hardware snafu which has slowed the deployment of the new cluster software. I'm hoping to have many new port updates ready when it's back online.
