First release candidate for NetBSD 9.0 available!

December 02, 2019 posted by Martin Husemann

Since the start of the release process four months ago a lot of improvements went into the branch - more than 500 pullups were processed!

This includes usbnet (a common framework for usb ethernet drivers), aarch64 stability enhancements and lots of new hardware support, installer/sysinst fixes and changes to the NVMM (hardware virtualization) interface.

We hope this will lead to the best NetBSD release ever (only to be topped by NetBSD 10 next year).

Here are a few highlights of the new release:

You can download binaries of NetBSD 9.0_RC1 from our Fastly-provided CDN.

For more details refer to the official release announcement.

Please help us out by testing 9.0_RC1. We love any and all feedback. Report problems through the usual channels (submit a PR or write to the appropriate list). More general feedback is welcome, please mail releng. Your input will help us put the finishing touches on what promises to be a great release!






At last! Thank ye for your work!
