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 am developing an open source program and for fun tried to run it in OpenBSD, it crushed with segfault. After using valgrind+memcheck I dicovered that program was reading 1 byte above its allocated memory, in other systems Linux based or Windows's program wasn't crashing.
Memory boundaries checking in OpenBSD is superb.
