OpenBSD 3.0 Available for Purchase

Daemonnews reports that "Looks like the OpenBSD project is a bit ahead of the scheduled Dec 1st release date for OpenBSD 3.0. This release is a 3 CD set, instead of the usual 2 CD set, but still comes in the 2CD size jewel case." In related BSD news, USB v2.0 support added to NetBSD-current. "The new ehci driver is still in development but is in a working state for some mass storage devices, such as CD-RW drives."

OpenBSD 3.0 Pre-Orders Beginning

OpenBSD 3.0 is now available for pre-order from the OpenBSD web site on 3 CDs, for US$40 (up $10 from recent releases). What's new: (1) ipf is now replaced by OpenBSD's own firewall/NAT system; (2) OpenSSH 3.O; (3) The CDs are bootable on 6 architectures; and (4) disc 2 has a mystery audio track! Sales of CDs, T-shirts, and posters are the primary source of funding for OpenBSD development.
