deadsimple BSD Security Advisories and Announcements

NetBSD 9.4 available!

The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce NetBSD 9.4, the fourth
release from the NetBSD 9 stable branch.

It represents a selected subset of fixes deemed important for security
or stability reasons since the release of NetBSD 9.3 in August 2022, as
well some enhancements backported from the development branch. It is
fully compatible with NetBSD 9.0. Users running 9.3 or an earlier
release are strongly recommended to upgrade. Please see the
release announcement[1] for details, especially check the OpenSLL
compatibility note.

If you want to upgrade to NetBSD 9.4 please find the installation notes[2]
for your architecture and download the prefered install image[3] from the CDN
or if you are using an ARM based device from the the bootable ARM
images[4] page.

The general NetBSD community is very excited about NetBSD 10.0 [5], the
latest NetBSD release, but if for some reason you can not (or do not
want to) update to 10.0, it is strongly recommended to update to 9.4.
This is especially true for users still using a NetBSD 8.x release as
that old release branch will be desupported by the end of April 2024.

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[6] or
file a problem report[7].
