Archives for : OpenBSD 5.1

Preorder OpenBSD 5.1 today

Theo de Raadt announced today that it’s now possible to preorder OpenBSD 5.1 that will be released May 1 2012. As usual is the preorders delivered a few days before the release date.  It’s also important to buy since the money is used by the developers to keep the project running.

It is that time again.  I have just activated pre-orders for CDs,
tshirts, and posters for the 5.1 release — due May 1.

At the same time, I am making available the song that will come out
with the release (hmm, it is still moving out to the ftp mirrors at
the moment, but that is ok).  The song and details of it are linked
from:

And there is something else.  Five years ago we made available an
Audio CD that contained 5 years of songs.  Well, we have made a new
audio CD since enough new songs have been made.  It is not very
expensive, so please consider buying this as well when you place any
order.  It has some rather nice liner notes.  Had some great fun
coming up with the cover for that CD:

I’d also like you remind you that Michael Lucas new “SSH Mastery” book
is also now available, in case anyone was waiting for the 5.1 release
to place one order.

Please consider purchasing these items and/or making a donation, since
this is a very important revenue source which keeps the project going.
