NetBSD "The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce NetBSD 6.0, the fourteenth major release of the NetBSD operating system. Changes from the previous release include scalability improvements on multi-core systems, many new and updated device drivers, Xen and MIPS port improvements, and brand new features such as a new packet filter. Some NetBSD 6.0 highlights are: support for thread-local storage (TLS), Logical Volume Manager (LVM) functionality, rewritten disk quota subsystem, new subsystems to handle flash devices and NAND controllers, an experimental CHFS file system designed for flash devices, support for Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) protocol, and more. This release also introduces NetBSD Packet Filter (NPF) - a new packet filter, designed with multi-core systems in mind, which can do TCP/IP traffic filtering, stateful inspection, and network address translation (NAT)."

I installed NetBSD 6.0 RC2 as a virtual machine and I was very glad to be able to run netbeans 7.2 smoothly (it is not in pkgsrc but the "all platforms" version found in netbeans website works like a charm).

pkgin (a binary package manager based on packages created using pkgsrc) is a very nice addition too.

Congratulations NetBSDians! ;)
