OpenBSD -current drops -beta tag, goes to 7.5

Contributed by Peter N. M. Hansteen on from the puffing up the versions again dept.

A clear sign that the OpenBSD 7.5 release cycle is entering the final phases just emerged.

In this commit, Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) changed the version string to 7.5:

From:       Theo de Raadt <deraadt () cvs ! openbsd ! org>
Date:       2024-02-29 17:05:10

Module name:	src
Changes by:	2024/02/29 10:05:10

Modified files:
	sys/conf       : 

Log message:
move from 7.5-beta to 7.5

It is worth noting that this does not mean that the new version has been released. This only means that what you will be testing when you install a snapshot will be ever closer to what will eventually become OpenBSD 7.5-release.

For upgrades to work correctly, you will need to run sysupgrade(8) with the -s flag and upgrade your installed packages by running pkg_add(1) with -D snap in addition to your usual options:

$ doas sysupgrade -s
[ ... lots of output ... ]
$ doas pkg_add -u -D snap

Please do keep in mind that when you engage with -current, it is always useful to read the FAQ's Following -current section to minimize surprises.

Happy OpenBSD 7.5 prerelase testing!
