OpenSSH Built on LibreSSL

Last year, OpenSSL got a lot of bad press – and some felt very deserved bad press. These were addressed by the OpenSSL developers and we have newer versions that have patched these “concerns.”

Another group of developers (OpenBSD) is much more critical of the current state of OpenSSL – even after the patches – because they feel there are inherent problems with the way OpenSSL has developed. They took the course of “putting their money where their mouth is” and started their own branch of OpenSSL – naming it “LibreSSL.”

DB2 11 Improves Duplicate Removal in SQL Result Set

When DBAs tune SQL, one of their priorities is to find SQL that invokes sorts, because sorts are expensive.

The statements that typically cause sorts are SELECT DISTINCT and GROUP BY. Other causes of sorts include the use of MAX/MIN aggregate functions and certain non-correlated subqueries (not transformed). The latest DB2 release, DB2 11, is designed to bring improved query performance to applications that use these types of statements.
