Contributed by pitrh on from the early bird gets the treat dept.
CD's arrived today UK. Thanks again.
In a followup message, Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) announced that pre-orderers have a special treat in store:
A note all who are receiving their CDs before the official release day.
We are opening up 5.8/packages on the download mirrors today, so that people receiving the release early can install packages.
The rest of the 5.8 release files will come out on release day.
That's a perk exclusively for loyal supporters who preorder: you get packages for the release before anybody else. The rest of us will have to wait until the release, which is set for October 18th.
Meanwhile on Twitter, Nayden Markatchev got his set on October 4th:
OpenBSD Store and help fund the project.
Update 2015-10-14: Note that several patches for problems corrected post-release are available.
