OpenBSD 4.9 cover

What is the answer to life, the universe and everything? Naturally 42. Quite different from the answer to "what shall I pre-order today?", as that is obviously OpenBSD 4.9, which is scheduled for release on May 1st, 2011.

This new release is again packed with lots of goodies like mandoc(1) as the groff(1) replacement, TCP send and receive buffer scaling, an /etc/rc.d directory for use by the ports system and of course many substantial improvements in the various areas such as the suspend / resume department, the USB subsystem, the handling of random numbers, etc. For a very long list have a look at the plus49 page.

So, grab your towel and head on over to the order page and make sure you'll get your set before May 1st! After you've placed your order, download the new release song "The Answer" (MP3 or OGG) and sing along to the lyrics.

  As a Bob Dylan fan, I must say this versions song is awesome. But I am not too impressed with the artwork.

As always, it is awesome with a new release! A pre-order will be arriving to OpenBSD Europe soon...

  Its cool to have 4.9 but rc.d(8) is not what am looking for.
would there be a day when lynx disappears? and all of a sudden we
have /usr/pkg/?
Would chroot apache be gone? OpenSSH gone?

:(
