NetBSD 10.0 RC1 available!

November 11, 2023 posted by Martin Husemann

The NetBSD project is pleased to announce the first release candidate of the upcoming 10.0 release, please help testing!
See the release anouncement for details.

The netbsd-10 release branch is more than a year old now, so it is high time the 10.0 release makes it to the front stage. This matches the long time it took for the developement branch to get ready for branching, a lot of developement went into this new release.

This also caused the release anouncement to be one of the longest we ever did.

Especially on amd64 machines please notes that we got a new DRM/KMS subsystem version, and this may lead to fallout on some hardware. Unfortunately not all known bugs from the release engineering pre-release task list could be fixed in time for this release - we will continue to improve the current state and hope to have more of them solved for the next (10.1) release.

If you want to test 10.0 RC1 please check the installation notes for your architecture and download the prefered install image from the CDN or if you are using an ARM based device from the netbsd-10 builds from the bootable ARM images page.

If you have any issues with installation or run into issues with the system during use, please contact us on one of the mailing lists or file a problem report.




Kudos to everybody helping make this happen!

Dear Martin, November 11 is St. Martin. Coincidence? In my country (Croatia) grape must is baptised to wine on that day.

Great work! Love that NetBSD is pursuing the ARM platform as tier 1. For forever could not run NetBSD on my Odroid XU4, but since NetBSD v9.0 I'm able to do it. Use the odroid as full blown desktop with Xvfb since the native framebuffer stuff is not yet available. But, works pretty good anyway. Hope to see more ... - Ron
