OpenSSH 8.2 now available
The latest version of OpenSSH is now available. OpenSSH 8.2 implements SSH protocol 2.0 and offers sftp client and server support. 

The team also announced that they will be disabling the “ssh-rsa” public key signature algorithm in a future release due to the fact that it is possible to perform attacks against it. According to them, better alternatives include the RFC8332 RSA SHA-2 signature algorithms rsa-sha2-256/512, the ssh-ed25519 signature algorithm, and the RFC5656 ECDSA algorithms: ecdsa-sha2-nistp256/384/521.
