James Chacon of the NetBSD release
engineering team has published the prospective timelines for the upcoming NetBSD releases.According to his
posting, the next major release, NetBSD 3.0, is planned for the end of
July. The next minor release, NetBSD 2.1 (an update to the
NetBSD 2 branch),
should be made public near the end of June, and a last minor update to the NetBSD 1.6 line, NetBSD
1.6.3, is planned for August/September of 2005.
These dates are obviously still subject to change, and further announcement
with more details will be made. In the mean time, the NetBSD team is pleased
to announce the availability of regular daily builds of all major branches,
which had been interrupted late last year due to hardware faults. Daily
snapshots are now again available from ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily,
with logs and ticket tracking information available from http://releng.netbsd.org/.
