OpenBSD The OpenBSD team has released OpenBSD 4.5. There have been lots of changes and bug fixes, but it's a rather daunting list that doesn't really lend itself towards a summary (hint), but I guess if you use OpenBSD you are perfectly capable of figuring this out yourself. You can get the new release from the download page.

Looks like some much needed features and drivers have been added, especially for netbooks. I wonder how well ACPI works now? I'm also very happy to see some WPA support in the Atheros driver... I just wish they hadn't been so pigheaded about WPA support in general for so long.

No one was being pigheaded... it requires people to
actually do the work. Code doesn't write itself.

OpenBSD would have been something I would have loved to run on my Acer Aspire One but the lack of support for the AR5700EG chipset really puts a spanner in the works. I hope that they'll bring support for the said chipset.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it'd be much use on my eee 1000he either. The Atheros AR928x chips aren't supported by OpenBSD yet. ;)
