>From the CHANGES file:

* Fix for compiling KLIPS on RHEL/Centos 2.6.18-92.1.10.el5 [dhr/paul]
* Fix in deleting connections that might have caused some of our Delete
  Notifies to have gotten lost. Introduced in openswan 2.5.01 [paul]
* Rekey= inverted yes/no, causing rekey=no to be rekey=yes [Shingo Yamawaki]
* Some memory leaks / refcount fixes [Shingo Yamawaki]
* Removed most of #ifdef CONFIG_KLIPS_DEBUG conditionals. We now always
  compile in DEBUG support. [paul]
* No longer use the assembly version of des_encrypt (dx86unix.S). It
  is i386-i686 specific, requires framepointers and does not work with
  CONFIG_REGPARM=y, which is the unconditional default for 2.6.17+ [paul]
* Fix memory leak when we run out of descriptors [David McCullough]
* Various memory leak fixes for pluto (from #macosx) [Ilia Sotnikov]
* LEAK_DETECTIVE should report better now [Ilia Sotnikov]

* Update stats to show dropped packets [David McCullough]
* Allow session migration of OCF devices [Brad Vrabete]
* DNS/WINS ModeConfig fixes [David McCullough]
* refineconnection bug fix. This might cover various problems where
  the right conn was not picked (eg rightca="%any" workaround, but
  perhaps also some rekey issues) [paul]
* unregister_netdevice: waiting for ppp2 to become free. Usage
  count = -1 on kernels < 2.6.24 [Martin Schiller]
