[20090416] NetBSD 5.0 Release Candidate 4 available
Soren Jacobsen writes: ``Today, we have two things to be happy about. First, the fourth release candidate of NetBSD 5.0 is available for download. Second, this announcement, like RC3's, coincides with an important birthday: that of Billy West.

Below are some highlighted changes since RC3:

  • Added the RLIMIT_AS resource, which limits the total address space available to processes.
  • Improved NFS server stability
  • FFS improvements
  • A fix for a pf(4) DoS
  • re(4) now works with the RealTek 8111C, which is found on many current motherboards with Intel chipsets
As usual, src/doc/CHANGES-5.0 has the full details.

Binaries of 5.0_RC4 are available for download at

Those of you tracking by source can either continue following the netbsd-5 branch or use the netbsd-5-0-RC4 tag.

As always, we want your feedback. This time, we are especially interested in hearing from people who are using NFS.''
