OpenBSD 5.5 has been released. As usual, the list of changes goes way beyond my comfort zone - I'm not exactly into the world of BSD - but I'm pretty sure that those that use OpenBSD aren't interested in oversimplified nonsense from people like me anyway.

As always, get it on CD-ROM (I love typing that in this day and age), or straight from a mirror.

If someone is considering moving to OpenBSD as a secure server right now, please be aware that this release as sold in CD and available from HTTP mirrors contains a vulnerable version of OpenSSL and needs to be patched by recompiling OpenSSL following the instructions available on the OpenBSD web site. If you aren't comfortable doing that and need HTTPS and similar, you should wait until 5.6 which will include the refurbished LibreSSL. This release is otherwise a nice one including OpenBSD signed packages, 64 bit time_t and improved Open source Radeon support.
