Announcing NetBSD 5.0.1

August 02, 2009 posted by Soren Jacobsen

On behalf of the NetBSD developers, I am pleased to announce that NetBSD 5.0.1 is now available for download. NetBSD 5.0.1 is the first security/critical update of the NetBSD 5.0 release branch. It represents a selected subset of fixes deemed critical in nature for security or stability reasons. All users are encouraged to upgrade.

Please note that due to changes in pkg_install, users upgrading from previous releases are strongly encouraged to run "pkg_admin rebuild" after the upgrade is complete.

For full details, please see the 5.0.1 release notes.
