Mar 18, 2015, 23:00 (0 Talkback[s])
* Much of OpenSSH's internal code has been re-factored to be more
library-like. These changes are mostly not user-visible, but
have greatly improved OpenSSH's testability and internal layout.
* Add FingerprintHash option to ssh(1) and sshd(8), and equivalent
command-line flags to the other tools to control algorithm used
for key fingerprints. The default changes from MD5 to SHA256 and
format from hex to base64.
Fingerprints now have the hash algorithm prepended. An example of
the new format: SHA256:mVPwvezndPv/ARoIadVY98vAC0g+P/5633yTC4d/wXE
Please note that visual host keys will also be different.
