Owl (Openwall GNU/*/Linux) is a small security-enhanced Linux distribution for servers. Owl also makes a good base system for customized virtual machine images and embedded systems, and Owl live CDs with remote SSH access are good for recovering or installing systems (whether with Owl or not). A single Owl CD includes the full live system, installable packages, the installer program, as well as full source code and the build environment capable of rebuilding the entire system from source. Owl supports multiple architectures (x86, x86-64, SPARC, and Alpha) and offers some compatibility for packages developed for other Linux distributions. The primary approaches to security are proactive source code review, privilege reduction, privilege separation, careful selection of third-party software, safe defaults, and "hardening" to reduce the likelihood of successful exploitation of security flaws.
Release Notes: The Linux kernel has been rebased on the latest from OpenVZ's RHEL5-based "testing" branch. binutils, tcsh, xinetd, and OpenSSL have been updated to new upstream versions, and assorted minor changes have been made to many Owl packages. The system has been rebuilt with the new binutils, which required some tweaks in various packages (now included, so further rebuilds work seamlessly), and new ISOs and OpenVZ templates have been generated for i686 and x86_64. Overall, this mostly conservative update is a precursor to a similar update to Owl 3.0-stable, and to more aggressive changes in Owl-current.
Distributed Checksum Clearinghouse (DCC) is a system of clients and servers that collect and count checksums related to mail messages.

Release Notes: This release adds partial support for FreeBSD on ARM processors.
