Hi misc@

Just received my 5.6 disks in the post!

Thanks to all the developers for your continued work in making another 
great OpenBSD release.


5.6 in the wild:

Reports are coming in from all over the world from people getting their CDs early, the obvious benefit to pre-ordering. If you haven't ordered yet, you can still do so over at, or if you don't need physical media (you'll miss out on the stickers), you can simply make a donation.

Please also consider getting your employer to order sets or make a donation if you use OpenBSD in your organisation.

    Actually, I received my 5.6 CDs in the mail sometime last week (Thursday or Friday if I remember correctly).

    Thanks to the OpenBSD team for another great release! Really looking forward to the LibreSSL goodness.

    Very cool CDs with the verification checksum on the CDs! Thank you for continuing to care about security and stability!
