OpenBSD 4.6 release ships new services, eases installation

Filed under
BSD

The OpenBSD project has announced the availability of release 4.6, which debuts a new mail server and an easier installation among many other feature enhancements and bug fixes for the open source operating system.

OpenBSD founder and release manager Theo de Raadt announced the installer has “almost been rewritten, primarily with a focus on simplifying the installation process”.

For example, automatic disk layout can now be used during installation, allowing for “simple” single-disk installs.

VLAN support is now available in some installation media, and a standard user account can now be created during the install process.

OpenBSD release 4.6 ships a new mail server, smtpd, which is a privilege-separated SMTP daemon.
