NetBSD 5.1.2 released

February 11, 2012 posted by Soren Jacobsen

On behalf of the NetBSD developers, I am pleased to announce that NetBSD 5.1.2 is now available for download. NetBSD 5.1.2 is the second critical/security update of the NetBSD 5.1 release branch. It represents a selected subset of fixes deemed critical for security or stability reasons. All users are encouraged to upgrade.

For full details, please see the 5.1.2 release notes.

To download 5.1.2, see

NetBSD 5.1.2 is dedicated to the memory of Yoshihiro Masuda, who passed away in May 2011. He was a spiritual pillar of the BSD community in Japan. Through an impressive number of books and articles on BSD, he gave courage to BSD developers. We remember his passion and deep love for BSD.




A true stalwart of the UNIX community, NetBSD has been, and continues to be, a pillar of structural integrity to the Open Source community. Of course :) Kindest regards, Bradley D. Thornton Manager Network Services NorthTech.US .

I upgraded NetBSD 5.1_RELEASE to 5.1_STABLE when support for Linux ext2fs file systems was added, think I would lose this by upgrading to 5.1.2. I have to hold out for NetBSD 6.0, am getting ready to build netbsd-5, HEAD and netbsd-6 from source, likely cross-compiling from FreeBSD 9.0.

We expect to get NetBSD 6 soon, that will provide tons of new features. It seems to be tagged in cvs repository - already.
