OpenBSD 3.7 Released

Post by boat » Mon May 23, 2005 3:08 pm

just a note that OpenBSD 3.7 was recently released...courtesy slashdot...:

"It's official: OpenBSD 3.7 has been released. There are oodles of new features, including tons of new and improved wireless drivers (covered here previously), new ports for the Sharp Zaurus and SGI, improvements to OpenSSH, OpenBGPD, OpenNTPD, CARP, PF, a new OSPF daemon, new functionality for the already-excellent ports & packages system, and lots more. As always, please support the project if you can by buying CDs and t-shirts, or grab the goodness from your local mirror."

there was also somewhat of a review done recently on OpenBSD 3.7, for your reading pleasure :)

enjoy.

I already have ordered CDs. I'll try to see if my dlink GWL-650 wireless card can work with OpenBSD 3.7 on my laptop. :D

That's like him. :lol: He always badmouth at anybody, included some developers from FreeBSD and NetBSD. :P

Here's one of reasons Theo said why linux kernel is bad. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=openbsd ... 006133&w=2
