Subject: NetBSD 1.4.3 Released
The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce the release of NetBSD 1.4.3.
This release fixes problems found in the earlier 1.4.x family of releases, improves stability, and includes support for new hardware. NetBSD 1.4.3 is a patch release of the 1.4 release branch. The 1.5 release branch will have its major release, NetBSD 1.5, shortly.
The release binaries and source for NetBSD 1.4.3 are available now. The pc532 and atari ports will be available in source form only for 1.4.3, but both will have release binaries for 1.5.
This release contains a number of new features which have been imported from the main NetBSD development branch since NetBSD 1.4.2, including:
In addition, many bugs have been fixed -- more than 70 problems reported through our problem tracking system have been fixed, and NetBSD 1.4.3 also contains fixes for other non-reported problems that were found during the 1.4.3 release cycle.
A complete list of changes applied between NetBSD 1.4.2 and 1.4.3 can be found at:
Please see the INSTALL note for your architecture(s) for further information; including supported hardware, how to install, and any known caveats with this release.
The LAST_MINUTE file in the main release directory contains pointers to last minute changes which did not make the source cutoff date.
