The first release candidate of NetBSD 5.2 is now available for download at:
NetBSD 5.2 is intended for those who have an application using NetBSD 5.0.x or 5.1.x who don't want the churn of upgrading to NetBSD 6.0, but would like bug fixes and some stable new features. There have been a number of changes since 5.1. See src/doc/CHANGES-5.2 for the full list.
Those of you who prefer to build from source can continue to follow the netbsd-5 branch, but the netbsd-5-2-RC1 tag is available as well.
Please help us test this and any upcoming release candidates as much as possible. Remember, any feedback is good feedback. We'd love to hear from you, whether you've got a complaint or a compliment.
