OpenBSD 7.4 Released

Contributed by Peter N. M. Hansteen on from the keep puffing it up dept.

The OpenBSD project has announced the release of OpenBSD 7.4, the 55th release of the OpenBSD operating system.

The new release contains a number of innovations and improvements across a number of areas, including

as well as the general churn of optimizations and fixes across the system.

Package counts (packages prebuilt for this release) for the more popular architectures are
i386: 10603,
amd64: 11845,
aarch64: 11508,
sparc64: 8469,
with more to follow as bulk builds complete.

As always, the release is available for download from mirror sites all over the world; be sure to pick one that is near you, network-wise! Those upgrading from the 7.3 release (or earlier) should consult the Upgrade Guide.

Thanks again to the developers for the dedicated effort that went into producing this new release!

    Congratulations. It's been nearly 25 years since I first installed OpenBSD and at BSDcon 2000 I decided I wanted the "canadian BSD" as my mainstay. I don't regret that at all. Yes there ups and downs that I had with OpenBSD and its community, but I am very grateful to be here (and to be writing this). If there is one thing in life I learned is that "we are not in control of our fate", but OpenBSD to me has always been a steadyness in tumultous and not so tumultous times. Thank you
