NetBSD Geert Hendrickx has announced the third release candidate of NetBSD 3.1. Binaries and .iso's can be found on the ftp site, or on one of the mirrors. "We anticipate this to be the final release candidate for the NetBSD 3.1 release, so, if no serious problems arise, we expect NetBSD 3.1 to be released on October 2."

"The change in release cycle and nominclature was nothing more than smoke and mirrors, an attempt to keep people looking forward at the show rather than at the elephant walking off the stage."

OMG!
Please digest the NetBSD change logs before talking nonsense and spreading wrong information!

Are you dense or something? Ignoring the point I'm making, or are you unable to grasp it?

They decided that they were going to shift from 1.6 to 2 to 3 to 4, they've increased the big numbers for no rhyme or reason, just to make it look like more happens between releases. I've not said nothing happens between releases, but the amount that happens is now less between those numbers on the left side of the decimal place, this is because they release with those bigger numbers more often. There was no significant reason for the change, it is a cosmetic change to their release cycle.

What!!!
*BS*

Go read the NetBSD CVS repositories changelogs and commits, and you'll know why the release numbers.
http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/htdocs/Ports/

Now I know why you're here.
You're obvlously here to preach your ">Insert Your Favorite OS Here<", and detract users from using NetBSD.
Please stop spreading garbage about NetBSD and get your facts straight!

Thanks, and Sayonara!
