 ( trey | 2002. április 21., vasárnap - 10:33 )

Számos újítást tartalmaz majd a feltehetően 2002. május. 19-én megjelenő OpenBSD 3.1. Az OpenBSD 3.1 már elérhető CVS Repositoryban.

Aki nem akar lemaradni a kiadásról, és szeretne eredeti OpenBSD 3.1 CD-ket, az megrendelheti ún. pre-order keretében. A 3CD-set elérhető lesz i386, alpha, macppc, vax, sparc, és sparc64 platformokra. Ezen kívül FTP-n keresztül elérhető lesz mvme68k, amiga, mac68k és hp300 gépekre.

Természetesen az új release-hez új ArtWork is jár. A kedvenc OpenBSD halunk brutálisabb mint valaha ;)

Újdonságok az OpenBSD 3.1-ben:

  • OpenSSH (supporting both the SSH1 and SSH2 protocols) is now at version 3.2. Secure file transfers are encouraged using the greatly enhanced SFTP subsystem which comes both with an SFTP server and client.

  • As usual, improvements to the documentation, notably the man pages and the Web FAQ. A larger part of the website is now available in several languages.
  • More complete collection and better tested set of "ports".
  • Over 1000 pre-built and tested packages.
  • Greatly improved hardware support in the
    OpenBSD/sparc64 port, and the addition of X11
    support.

  • Numerous performance improvements to the OpenBSD/macppc port, as well as accelerated X11 servers
    for some models.

  • A lot of enhancements to our new packet filter, pf,
    including performance improvements, as well as the ability to filter other
    protocols than the usual tcp, udp and icmp, such as esp.

  • An utility to achieve per-user pf rules changes, typically intended for
    gateways, authpf.

  • Wavelan bridging is now possible on Prism-II based cards.
  • The system includes the following major components from outside suppliers:
  • XFree86 4.2.0 (and i386 contains 3.3.X servers also, thus providing support for all chipsets)
  • gcc 2.95.3 (+ patches)
  • perl 5.6.1 (+ patches)
  • Apache 1.3.24, mod_ssl 2.8.8, OpenSSL 0.9.6b (+ patches), DSO support
