Numerous system packages have been updated for gen3 appliances to upgrade to latest upstream Apache and Webmin HTTPS servers along with other system enhancements. Highlights:

* Fix download of large updates failing/getting stuck.
* Add support for forwarding syslog messages.
* Add clickjacking and other protections to HTTPS access.
* Support TLSv1.2 in webmin.
* Disable ssh login by default. Allow ssh configuration in webmin.

See the Details link on individual packages under
System / System Setup / Update Software
for more details. Install all related packages at the same time: apr*, httpd*, mod_ssl, openssl*, perl*, thunderstonePatch, webmin

Note that if you've made hand customizations to the apache http config you may have to redo them by hand after upgrading to httpd-2.4. The configs from httpd-2.2 will be preserved in the log directory for perusal, /log/httpd22conf.bak

thunderstonePatch-2.16 also added the ability to lock the console menu with a password. Currently the console password can only be set from the console. A future texisScripts release will allow setting it from the web interface.
