OpenBSD Theo de Raadt has announced the release of OpenBSD 5.1. The OpenBSD 5.1 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.

I've heard on IRC that linux emulation just isn't a top priority. I kind of get what they are getting at but still it's a little frustrating.

I like OpenBSD a lot. I'm glad I'm not the only one with those random .core dumps.

Actually, OBSD devs are trying to get away from GCC all the way by implementing PCC

Well, 'ulimit -c 0' seems to disable coredumps, but it's not exactly an "OpenBSD way of doing things" I suppose ... ;)
