OpenBSD Theo de Raadt has announced the release of OpenBSD 5.2. The OpenBSD 5.2 release page has a detailed list of all changes and improvements. As always, I would love for someone to write proper items about OpenBSD releases - it's outside my interests and cursory glances don't do it justice.

For this very secure operating system, it is disappointing that it does not even offer disk encryption in the installer.

Full-disk encryption is probably not even possible.

Not to long ago this source change showed up: http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=135135263905569&w=2

As I read this commit booting from softraids should now be possible in -current. Therefore if I understand this correctly Full-disk encryption is now possible (though not in the just released 5.2).
