OpenBSD 3.3 Available for Pre-Order
Contributed by jose on Wed Mar 26 04:27:00 2003 (GMT)
from the gettin-ready-for-release! dept.

jolan was one of a few to write:

"Continuing down the path of evolutionary development, release time for OpenBSD 3.3 grows near. Pre-orders of CD sets are now being accepted and new t-shirt designs are up. If CD sets and t-shirts don't tickle your fancy, please consider making a donation . Every bit helps as DARPA funding does not cover everything and will not last forever."
I'm running 3.3-beta and finding it stable, feature rich, and a welcome step in the evolutionary process. Get yours right away!
UPDATE : The direct links to order are up now, for international orders use: http://https.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/order and for European orders, use http://https.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/order.eu . Also, there are new OpenSSH tshirts . The poster for 3.3 is also now available. Thanks Wim.

  Puff's eyebrows and expression reminds me more of James Earl Jones than Arnold.

Puff, what is best in sys admin?
To crush your script kiddies, see them coredump before you, hear the stack protector warnings of their failed overflows.

Oh, and 3.3-beta has been great so far. Stack protection, pf wonders, new/improved drivers and ports, etc etc.

  Announcements of 3.3 pre-ordering everywhere but on the order page. Sigh.

  Is it the final cover artwork?

While the artwork was very cute on previous releases, that one is a bit disappointing. Puffy doesn't look nice. He looks like a bad guy, not like a defender.

  Wha??? No Alpha!!! Why??? (mod 2/98)
by RC on Thu Mar 27 00:02:00 2003 (GMT)
  Damn! It says that the Alpha architecture is no longer included on the CDs!!! I'm stunned...

Oh well, what else can I say? 3.2 was the first release that I bought, and now, I suppose it's going to be the last.

  No 3.3 CD Option on the Order Page... (mod 1/97)
by Jim on Wed Mar 26 14:14:00 2003 (GMT)
  I just clicked on over to http://www.openbsd.org/orders.html and choose the Secure Web Ordering Form for North America and find that 3.3 is not an available option for purchase. Someone update that page so I can give you money! Please?

  Does anyone know about the "Significant improvements to the pthread library" in 3.3? I've had some trouble in the past with pthreads in wxWindows 2.4 on OpenBSD 3.2 and was just wondering if anyone knows if these changes are related to stability, standards conformance, performance, etc. Thanks.

  Logo text (mod 2/96)
by Anonymous Coward on Sun Mar 30 09:23:00 2003 (GMT)
  Now that the artwork is getting better all the time, how about also making the logo text matching the style of the artwork? That /Open/BSD 3.3 just looks quite boring on that poster.
