I just browsed all of the source and openssh-dev mailing list archive, seems that the patch was accepted but not integrated (as I though it’ll be months ago) into the current or last release.
Also waiting on upstream support of ChaCha20/Poly1305.

I’ve just removed the entry from the document myself. Let’s see if there’s going to be support for that in the future. Mea culpa.

Thanks for noticing,
