The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce that version 5.0.2 of the NetBSD operating system is now available. NetBSD 5.0.2 is the second critical/security update of the NetBSD 5.0 release branch. It represents a selected subset of fixes deemed critical for security or stability reasons.
Please note that all fixes in critical/security updates (i.e., NetBSD 5.0.1, 5.0.2, etc.) are cumulative, so the latest update contains all such fixes since the corresponding minor release. These fixes will also appear in future minor releases (i.e., NetBSD 5.1, 5.2, etc.), together with other less-critical fixes and feature enhancements. Your generous donations during the 2007 fund drive allowed us to sponsor much of NetBSD 5.0's development in the areas of SMP performance and scalability. See below to find out how you can help us repeat this success.
Complete source and binaries for NetBSD 5.0.2 are available for download at many sites around the world. A list of download sites providing FTP, HTTP, AnonCVS, SUP, and other services may be found at http://www.netbsd.org/mirrors/. We encourage users who wish to install via ISO images to download via BitTorrent by using the torrent files supplied in the ISO image area. A list of hashes for the NetBSD 5.0.2 distribution has been signed with the well-connected PGP key for the NetBSD Security Officer: http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/security/hashes/NetBSD-5.0.2_hashes.asc
