deadsimple BSD Security Advisories and Announcements

NetBSD 10.0 RC2 available!

The NetBSD project is pleased to announce the second (and hopefully
final) release candidate[1] of the upcoming 10.0 release, please help testing!
See the release anouncement[2] for details.
The netbsd-10 release branch is more than a year old now, so it is high
time the 10.0 release makes it to the front stage. This matches the
long time it took for the developement branch to get ready for
branching, a lot of developement went into this new release.
This also caused the release anouncement to be one of the longest we 
ever did.

Since RC1 there have been numerous changes, including major updates to
external software included in the release: Postfix, OpenSSH, and the
firmware used for Raspberry PI devices. Various issues with RC1 have
been fixed, including installer (sysinst) crashes. Lots of architecture
specific fixes happend, e.g. various toolchain changes for VAX (so it
is now finaly self-hosting again), and kernel changes for macppc,
netwinder, and alpha.

Especially on amd64 machines please notes that we got a new DRM/KMS
subsystem version, and this may lead to fallout on some hardware.
Unfortunately not all known bugs from the release engineering
pre-release task list[3] could be fixed in time for this release - we will
continue to improve the current state and hope to have more of them
solved for the next (10.1) release.

If you want to test 10.0 RC2 please check the installation notes[4] for
your architecture and download the prefered install image[5] from the CDN
or if you are using an ARM based device from the netbsd-10 builds from
the bootable ARM images[6] page.

If you have any issues with installation or run into issues with the
system during use, please contact us on one of the mailing lists[7] or
file a problem report[8].
