DragonFly 5.2.1 is out, so our current release includes the fix for
CVE-2018-8897.  The tag message includes the summary of all commits to
5.2 since the 5.2.0 release:


I've built the usual ISO and IMG files for download and install, plus
there's an uncompressed ISO image for those installing remotely.

If you have an existing 5.2.x system and are running a generic kernel,
the normal upgrade process will work.

> cd /usr/src
> git pull

And then rebuild: (in /usr/src )

> make buildworld
> make buildkernel
> make installkernel
> make installworld
> make upgrade

Don't forget to upgrade your existing packages.

> pkg upgrade

If for some reason you're still running 5.0 or (I haven't done this)
4.8, you can upgrade after changing your git remote - see the 5.2.0
release mail if that applies to you.
