Greetings;

New LiveCD and LiveUSB images are now available containing the latest openssl
packages at the link below:

http://software.internet2.edu/pS-Performance_Toolkit/

This is required since LiveCD/USB users cannot update packages and have them
survive a reboot due to the nature of the live media. It is advised all
LiveCD and LiveUSB users upgrade to the latest version at this time. If you
are a NetInstall user, see Jason's previous note for steps on how to update
your host. As always, please let us know if you have any questions

Thanks,
Andy
