We are pleased to announce the official release of OpenBSD 6.1. This is our 42nd release. We remain proud of OpenBSD's record of more than twenty years with only two remote holes in the default install.
This release has several notable changes. The most visible are:
- New syspatch(8) utility for binary base system updates to supported -stable amd64 and i386 releases
- The acme-client, a privilege separated ACME client for easy maintenance of Let's encrypt TLS certificates
We expect these items will make the day to day running of OpenBSD systems significantly easier.
Other notable improvements include:
- Several enhancements to vmm(4), including support for third-party BIOSes and Linux guests
- New arm64 platform targeting Pine64, Raspberry Pi 3 and Opteron A1100
- Continuing SMP improvements, particularly in the network stack
- New xenodm(1) X display manager
- Improved capabilites in a number of IEEE 802.11 wireless network drivers
- Updates to the package system tools as well as the package collection itself, with increased number of prebuilt packages for the more popular (and faster) architectures
This release also has updated versions of OpenSMTPD, OpenSSH, LibreSSL, mandoc as well as incremental improvements to all other named subprojects.
