netbsd-5 tagged and Baudday

Yesterday new version of netbsd was tagged in CVS. NetBSD-current 4.99.73 was tagged as netbsd-5 - next stable version. There are still some bugs to fix, but generally it is stable. One problem, which hits me on NetBSD-current/amd64 is performance of the WAPBL - journal for FFS. There are some patches for that: PR 39564. But I haven't that problem much on NetBSD-current/i386. Speaking of which, I've updated to newest current on laptop to find it is 5.99.01. So, numbers keep rolling... Other than need of accepting EULA of iwi(4) firmware and using "-s" switch in etcupdate and postinstall, there is no user visible changes. One day that 5.99 will be netbsd-6. Probably I won't update my gateway from 4.0_STABLE to 5.0 until it will be released. Which may take a while...

Speaking of numbers, it seems that tomorrow will be my 9600 day of life. :-) In couple of days there should be another post. But I'll keep secret about subject of that post. ;-)
