Default Following OpenBSD -current? Read critical documentation!

It has always been a strong recommendation to read the Following -current FAQ before upgrading to -current, or from and older -current to a new -current.

At this time, you will not be able to successfully upgrade if you do not read and follow this FAQ before taking any action.

This particular change requires you to:
  • Delete all installed packages except firmware prior to upgrading.
  • Update the password database file while running the RAMDISK kernel
  • Reset login records
  • Reinstall all packages, built with the new ABI.
The FAQ doesn't state this, as it is considered obvious: back up your system first.

It is not advised to run an outdated version of -CURRENT.

But isn't by definition, a release an outdated version of -CURRENT?

Does anyone notice the prowess of opera now on 5.4 ? is it because of the updated g++ ?
Now when I customize opera settings , there seem to be no legacy bugs I used to encounter .. (as when turning off history or automatic updates .. )

Your question is off topic, daemonfowl.

Remember:
  • The program you're asking about is a propriety product of Opera Software ASA, available to the public in executable, binary form. It can only be used with OpenBSD under compat_linux(8) on OpenBSD/i386.
I don't follow changes to the ABI compatibility layer in the kernel. A quick look at the most recent patches shows only the time_t changes articulated at the top of this thread, but they came in the month after your last snapshot. There may have been other changes -- you can review the CVS logs if you wish.

You should select another mirror if the one in Spain is not keeping up to date.
