TrinityOS is well known for its strong packet firewall ruleset, Chrooted and Split DNS (v9 and v8), secured Sendmail (8.x), Linux PPTP, Serial consoles and Reverse TELNET, DHCPd, SSHd, UPSes, system performance tuning, the automated TrinityOS-Security implementation scripts, and much more.

A wget command was added to download a local IANA list. All URLs that pointed to kernelnotes.org were updated or deleted.
Release Notes: Various daemon versions were updated in the URL section. The thoughts about Redhat, Fedora, and SuSe in the distros section were updated. A Bash OCTAL math issue in the UPS graphing script was fixed.
Release Notes: An update to the kernel compiling script "build-it", installation of OpenSSH to TrinityOS and deprecation of the use of SSH.com code (though instructions are still present), updated thoughts on RPM hell (it's not that bad now) and patch/errata support, and other bugfixes.
Release Notes: Many updates were made, including the addition of critical files to the backup floppy and Samba 2.2.8a to resolve security issues.
