OpenBSD 5.8 available for dedicated servers
« on: November 24, 2015, 11:10:36 AM »


OpenBSD 5.8 is now available for all dedicated servers for automatic installation. In the new version the hardware support was further expanded. The new version comes with drivers for IBM CPC945 HyperTransport Bridges and drivers for USB and Flash on OpenBSD/octeon- systems. Many hardware drivers have been updated, too.

The new release also includes improvements of the network stack and supports, among other things, the allocation of the same network areas based on priority lists. Moreover, the security of the base system has been increased. So OpenBSD 5.8 relies on doas instead of sudo. File(1) was replaced by a modern implementation and pax, tar and cpio have enhanced security mechanisms. In addition, OpenSSH 7.0 and LibreSSL 2.2.2 were attached.

More features:

- OpenSSH 7.0
- LibreSSL 2.2.2
- expansion of hardware support
- update of multiple hardware drivers
- improvements of network stack

The OS is not running on all platforms so during a Reinstall it´s conducted in "beta" status. In this case, please use OpenBSD 5.6 as installation.

kind regards,
