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.

We don't care

We don't care of OpenBSD -stable.
They wrote it on their website: they don't care of -stable. -stable is there only so that they make money.
They almost never update ports in -stable, and you can't use ports of -current in -stable.
There are almost only patches in the -stable base system, and they patch -current first.
In fact, the only really supported version is -current, because they only care about those who contribute.
-current is their "best version".

No troll there, it is the truth.
