Extending support for the NetBSD-7 branch


April 02, 2020 posted by Maya Rashish

Typically, some time after releasing a new NetBSD major version (such as NetBSD 9.0), we will announce the end-of-life of the N-2 branch, in this case NetBSD-7.

We've decided to hold off on doing that to ensure our users don't feel rushed to perform a major version update on any remote machines, possibly needing to reach the machine if anything goes wrong.

Security fixes will still be made to the NetBSD-7 branch.

We hope you're all safe. Stay home.

Thanks for this. I have a number of hobby systems at home and a few at work I use. I'm really partial to the 7.x stream, especially 7.2. It really does work well on some of the more antique systems I enjoy using. Much <3
