OpenBSD O'Reilly interviewed 27 OpenBSD developers to present the new release. They discussed buffer cache improvements, the new malloc(), the work to make the math library more C99 compliant, what is new in the SCSI area, crypto support for softraid, a lot of fundamental work happened in PF, a new tool to merge configuration files during upgrades, the status of OpenCVS, some cool features of OpenSSH 5.1, the initial support for USB webcams, the never-ending work on improving and extending the sensors framework, and more.

I will assume that the use of the word "immature" means lacking features in your vernacular.

What you consider a waste of time is not considered a waste of time on their part. They (the core devs) are a group driven by philosophical wants. For them, the license issue is very important so that is where they spend the majority of the time.
