OpenSSH 6.7 has been released this morning with a number of new features.

OpenSSH 6.7 features major code refactoring as its developers try to make OpenSSH usable as a library, which is progressing, but there's not yet a stable API. OpenSSH 6.7 also brings support to ssh/sshd for Unix domain socket forwarding, sftp supports resuming interrupted uploads, and there's many bug fixes throughout the OpenSSH stack.

The portable OpenSSH also now supports building against libressl-portable and numerous other changes.

More details on OpenSSH 6.7 can be found via the official release announcement.
