OpenBSD 5.0 reveals MAD-themed release

Filed under

The OpenBSD Foundation has released version 5.0 of the popular operating system and has made it available for download – or for purchase via CD if you want the bonus party pack.

The latest release includes better memory-control systems across a variety of architectures, new drivers for SCSI and 10GB Ethernet systems, and improved support for the Wake LAN toolset. The math library has been fleshed out and debugged, while randomization speed and quality has been beefed up for better security.

“We are pleased to announce the official release of OpenBSD 5.0,” the organization said in a statement. “This is our 30th release on CD-ROM (and 31st via FTP). We remain proud of OpenBSD's record of more than ten years with only two remote holes in the default install.”
