Hi all,

The option Protocol is now obsolete.

The value of Protocol in ssh_config has indeed been changed from 2,1 to 2 but that option was deleted thereafter, when support of SSH protocol version 1 was eventually dropped.

No functional change (obsolete option was mentioned in a comment)

I just wrote to the OpenSSH developers' public list with a reference to this problem report.
Comment 2 Samy Mahmoudi 2019-02-04 07:29:47 UTC
Applied upstream, will appear in release 8.0.

    openssh: update to OpenSSH v8.7p1
    Some notable changes, from upstream's release notes:
    - sshd(8): Remove support for obsolete "host/port" syntax.
    - ssh(1): When prompting whether to record a new host key, accept the key
      fingerprint as a synonym for "yes".
    - ssh-keygen(1): when acting as a CA and signing certificates with an RSA
      key, default to using the rsa-sha2-512 signature algorithm.
    - ssh(1), sshd(8), ssh-keygen(1): this release removes the "ssh-rsa"
      (RSA/SHA1) algorithm from those accepted for certificate signatures.
    - ssh-sk-helper(8): this is a new binary. It is used by the FIDO/U2F
      support to provide address-space isolation for token middleware
      libraries (including the internal one).
    - ssh(1): this release enables UpdateHostkeys by default subject to some
      conservative preconditions.
    - scp(1): this release changes the behaviour of remote to remote copies
      (e.g. "scp host-a:/path host-b:") to transfer through the local host
      by default.
    - scp(1): experimental support for transfers using the SFTP protocol as
      a replacement for the venerable SCP/RCP protocol that it has
      traditionally used.
    Additional integration work is needed to support FIDO/U2F in the base
    Deprecation Notice
    OpenSSH will disable the ssh-rsa signature scheme by default in the
    next release.
