OpenBSD 5.3 Released

The start of May 2013 marks the release of OpenBSD 5.3.  Another release brings a swag of hardware improvements along with software features that will give users even more choices when they are building a server, router/firewall or desktop computer.

Nginx in OpenBSD 5.2-Release

Nginx(8) is the replacement web server for the old patched Apache 1.3 in OpenBSD.  As of OpenBSD 5.2, Nginx(8) is still not the primary [default] web server in the BSD release and allows for users to slowly migrate from Apache to Nginx(8) without additional  package install.

OpenBSD 5.2 pre-orders are up

The OpenBSD project has announced that pre-orders for the up coming 5.2 release of the operating system are now on-line.  The release is due to hit shelves and mirrors on 1 November, 2012.

The inexpensive 3-CD sets of OpenBSD 5.2 are $50CDN, Posters $2oCDN and T-Shirts $25CDN.  While you are there, you can also make a donation or buy back copies of editions if you have some that you are missing (something that I have done for this order).

OpenBSD 5.1 Released…

Yes, I know, OpenBSD 5.1 has been released since 1 May 2012, however my blog wasn’t up then.  It did get a mention on my Twitter and G+ pages so all is not lost.

I highly recommend supporting the project by buying a CD release or making a donation.  While you are waiting for your physical media, do download the installer and get cracking with this fine, very mature and secure operating system.
