Software Update: NetBSD 3.0 RC1

NetBSD is a Unix-like operating system with its roots in the 386BSD 0.1 branch. The first version, NetBSD 0.8, was available on April 21, 1993 and has been evolving ever since. Of the three known BSD variants, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD, the latter supports most different platforms. The first release candidate of version 3.0 has been released with the following announcement:


on behalf of the NetBSD Release Engineering team, I’m happy to announce that the release process for NetBSD 3.0 has officially begun. The list of significant source changes from NetBSD 2.0 to 3.0 is available here. The first release candidate is available for download here

We expect to have RC2 available on the FTP server in about a week, and we hope this will be the final release candidate. So if all goes well the release of 3.0 is approximately three weeks away. We appreciate your patience and support which we hope will make this the best NetBSD release to date!

Kind regards
