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.

The problem is not so much that they're rewritting CVS with a BSD license. The problem is that these days pretty much everybody is running away from CVS to distributed systems like git or mercurial.

So basically OpenBSD is wasting the few time they have into rewritting a outdated source management system.
