Description

Dear DragonFlyBSD bugs,

In your handbook, under the "13. Security" heading, and then the

"4. DES, MD5 and Crypt" sub-heading, the handbook states:

"By default DragonFly uses MD5 to encrypt passwords.".

But that statement is no longer true, since there was a Google-Code-In (Dec
2010 ?) project to alter the
default encryption of passwords to use SHA256.

--

Also, there is a typographical error on:

http://www.dragonflybsd.org/features/

Sub-heading:

DMA - DragonFly Mail Agent,

"...mail delivery and simply remote mail transfers..."

Presumably "simply" shoud be "simple".

I've made the changes to the pages; thank you for listing them!

The site's a wiki, so if you want to do it yourself directly, you can.
