new syspatches for 6.1 available
8 March, 2018 by firstname.lastname@example.org | openbsd
I'm happy to announce that we are now able to provide two releases worth of syspatches on the amd64 and i386 platforms. The binary patches for 6.1 will hit the mirrors shortly, so you will be able to catch up with the errata on https://www.openbsd.org/errata61.html using the syspatch utility. People running amd64 will thus get the meltdown workaround. This means in particular that 6.2 will remain supported by syspatch when 6.3 comes out. Thanks to robert and ajacoutot for their amazing work on syspatch and for all their help. Thanks also to tj and the volunteers from #openbsd for their timely tests and of course to Theo for overseeing it all.
