  • New functionality:
    • eeprom(8) is now able to display the OpenPROM device tree on systems that have it.(Wah seperti di Solaris saja nih)
    • Support for X11 on sgi has been added.

    • The eso(4) driver now supports recording as well as full-duplex mode.
    • The
      ffs layer is now 64-bit disk block address clean. This means that
      disks, partitions and filesystems larger than 2TB are now supported,
      with the exception of statfs(2) and quotas. (Suatu saat NAS running di OpenBSD)
    • DMA is now enabled for 1-sector devices such as flash drives, providing significant speed improvement.
    • Sparc and Sparc64 disklabels now provide automatic recognition of ext2fs partitions.
    • Filesystems on USB devices are automatically dismounted if the device is disconnected.
    • The configuration of carp(4) load balancing has been vastly simplified.
    • fstab(5) entries referring to non-existent mount points are now ignored, allowing subsequent entries to be processed.
    • Additional configuration files can now be included in pf.conf(5).
    • sppp(4) now has IPv6 support.
    • ipsec.conf(5) now supports defining 192 and 256 bit keysizes for AES.
  • Assorted improvements and code cleanup:
    • Improved support for an lkm(4) subsystem on amd64.
    • ossaudio(3) received several bug fixes and enhancements including but not limited to improved recording and full-duplex support.
    • audio(4) received several bug fixes and enhancements including but not limited to improved recording and full-duplex support.
    • make(1)
      was heavily modified, mostly to improve support for parallel build.
      Parallel builds now run commands in the same way the sequential builds
      do, and the output from commands is more readable. A large part of the
      source tree, xenocara, and quite a few ports now build correctly with
      make -j. (Making X11 With XENOCARA is nice)
    • rcs tools improvements and bug fixes.
    • RTM_VERSION
      was increased so that all routing messages could be modified to include
      additional fields for upcoming networking features.
    • sendbug(1) has stricter comment parsing, to avoid mangling diffs.
    • umass(4) devices no longer detect bogus LUNs.
    • USB st(4) devices can now successfully disconnect.
    • More deviant umass devices accommodated.
    • svnd(4) devices now work on block devices.
    • disklabel(8) is now aware of NTFS partitions.
    • raidctl(8) now correctly handles trailing whitespace in configuration files.
    • mt(4) no longer triggers panics when processing the 'rewoffl' command.
    • raid(4) devices no longer hang when searching for components during boot.
    • sd(4) devices no longer receive spurious SYNCHRONIZE CACHE commands that confuse some hardware.
    • sd(4)
      no longer claim that SYNCHRONIZE CACHE commands are 16 bytes long when
      they are actually 10 bytes. Some devices took this too literally.
    • dhcpd(8) now always issues packets equal or larger than the minimum IP MTU.
    • disklabel(8) -E mode does not allow manual editing of the 'c' partition, which is always set to cover the entire disk.
    • disklabel(8) -E mode does not allow changing the cpg value of a partition.
    • disklabel(8) -E mode no longer permits assigning arbitrary sizes to FS_BOOT and FS_UNUSED partitions.
    • The bge(4) driver problems receiving jumbo frames have been resolved.
    • Many dangerous unsigned comparisons with -1 when checking the results of read and write calls have been eliminated.
    • The new M_ZERO flag for malloc(9) replaces many
      malloc+bzero/memset combinations, fixing a number of bugs in memory
      initialization and shrinking the kernel.
    • dhcpd(8) now correctly constructs response packets that use the overflow buffers to store options.
    • SCSI drivers are more reliable in MP machines due to better locking around command completion.
    • TCP responses to highly fragmented packets are now constructed without risking corruption of kernel memory.
    • Sockets now allow 4095 multicast group memberships.
  • Install/Upgrade process changes:
    • All platforms now have serial console support when installing.
    • Serial console speed is detected and appropriate /etc/ttys entries automatically created.
    • OpenBSD/vax now also has both kinds of install ISO CD images.
    • DNS server addresses are remembered if an install is restarted.
    • OpenBSD/sgi can now be installed using the glass console.


  • OpenBGPD 4.3:
    • Correctly handle prefixes which would cause a routing loop.
    • bgpctl's detailed RIB output shows additional attributes like extended communities or the cluster id list.
  • OpenNTPD 4.3: (Very Simple And Secure Implementation of NTP protocol)
    • Handle IP changes of clients more gracefully.
    • Log peer and sensor status to syslog if the majority of either is bad, or if a SIGINFO signal is received.
    • Allow offsetting of time sensors that have a systematic error.


  • OpenOSPFD 4.3:
    • Equal cost multipath support -- don't forget to set the right sysctls.
    • Parser and commandline options are now in sync with bgpd.


  • relayd 4.3: (Move spam to /dev/null)
    • hoststated(8)/hoststatectl(8) were renamed to relayd(8)/relayctl(8).
    • Improved configuration grammar for relayd.conf(5).
    • Allow to send SNMP traps via snmpd(8) when host states change.
    • Improved support for URL filtering and protocol actions.
    • Added support for UDP-based DNS relaying with request ID randomisation.
    • Various bug fixes, optimisations, and cleanups.
    • Improved reload support.


  • OpenSSH 4.8:
    • Added chroot(2) support for sshd(8),
      controlled by a new option "ChrootDirectory". Please refer to
      sshd_config(5) for details, and please use this feature carefully.
    • Linked sftp-server(8) into sshd(8).
      The internal sftp server is used when the command "internal-sftp" is
      specified in a Subsystem or ForceCommand declaration. When used with
      ChrootDirectory, the internal sftp server requires no special
      configuration of files inside the chroot environment. Please refer to sshd_config(5) for more information.
    • Added a protocol extension method "posix-rename@openssh.com" for sftp-server(8) to perform POSIX atomic rename() operations.
    • Removed the fixed limit of 100 file handles in sftp-server(8). The server will now dynamically allocate handles up to the number of available file descriptors.
    • ssh(1)
      will now skip generation of SSH protocol 1 ephemeral server keys when
      in inetd mode and protocol 2 connections are negotiated. This speeds up
      protocol 2 connections to inetd-mode servers that also allow Protocol
      1.
    • Accept the PermitRootLogin directive in a sshd_config(5) Match block. Allows for, e.g. permitting root only from the local network.
    • Reworked sftp(1) argument splitting and escaping to be more internally consistent (i.e. between sftp commands) and more consistent with sh(1).
      Please note that this will change the interpretation of some quoted
      strings, especially those with embedded backslash escape sequences.
    • Support "Banner=none" in sshd_config(5) to disable sending of a pre-login banner (e.g. in a Match block).
    • ssh(1) ProxyCommands are now executed with $SHELL rather than /bin/sh.
    • ssh(1)'s
      ConnectTimeout option is now applied to both the TCP connection and the
      SSH banner exchange (previously it just covered the TCP connection).
      This allows callers of ssh(1) to better detect and deal with stuck
      servers that accept a TCP connection but don't progress the protocol,
      and also makes ConnectTimeout useful for connections via a
      ProxyCommand.
    • Many new regression tests, including interop tests against PuTTY's plink.
    • SSH2_MSG_UNIMPLEMENTED packets did not correctly reset the
      client keepalive logic, causing disconnections on servers that did not
      explicitly implement "keepalive@openssh.com".
    • ssh(1) used the obsolete SIG DNS RRtype for host keys in DNS, instead of the current standard RRSIG.
    • Correctly drain ACKs when a sftp(1) upload write fails midway, avoids a fatal(1) exit from what should be a recoverable condition.
    • Fixed packet size advertisements. Previously TCP and agent
      forwarding incorrectly advertised the channel window size as the packet
      size, causing fatal errors under some conditions.
    • Many more bugfixes. Please refer to the Release Notes.

Why OpenBSD? Is BSD is Dying???
