OpenBSD 7.2 is being released!


Right now, my OpenBSD machines run the upgrade:

Code:
$ doas sysupgrade
The release page lists a couple of improvements, especially Apple M2 support and a few speed improvements in core components.

Please read the upgrade guide and follow the steps:

Code:
$ doas sysmerge
# now, follow the "Configuration and syntax changes" paragraph
Enjoy!

Heads up: It may happen that inet autoconf breaks after the sysupgrade, at least it did on one of my OpenBSD servers.
Solution: Use inet <your IPv4 address> in /etc/hostname.<your adapter> and set your gateway in /etc/mygate.

Just grabbing mine now - good timing.

I was about to install 7.1 onto a couple of old computers, now it can be 7.2.

I noticed that pkg_add -u is amazingly fast now!

What changed? Or should I dig through CVS?

Basically, they enabled caching for pkg_add, including quirks.
