OpenBSD 6.7 artwork by Jonni Phillips

Hello again, everyone! Time for another blog post, this time about a new release of OpenBSD which came out on Tuesday, 2020-05-19. On this date, version 6.7 was unleashed to the world, bringing with it FFS2 as the default filesystem for most architectures, several SMP improvements, new and improved drivers and improved ARM CPU support. You can read more about it here.

And, as is always the case with an OpenBSD release, there’s some new artwork, this time by artist Jonni Phillips, and it’s definitely a sign of the times. It’s called “Coral Fever”.

So, how is OpenBSD 6.7? Great, actually! Though I had been running what would be 6.7-release for a while now since I run the -current snapshots, I had to redo my installation on the Toshiba Portege M400 in order to get the goodness of FFS2. Everything seems to be quite stable as it has always been, so I’m quite happy.

Anyway, that’s all I wanted to share this time. If you want to give it a try, be sure to download it from the OpenBSD website and either get it on some hardware or in a virtual machine. Have fun!
