Default OpenBSD 7.1 has been released

Today, the OpenBSD Project released version 7.1!
There will be no more package updates for release 7.0, and no more patches for 6.9. Users on 6.9 should upgrade. Upgrade Guide for 7.0 to 7.1: http://www.openbsd.org/faq/upgrade71.html. Upgrade Guide for 6.9 to 7.0: http://www.openbsd.org/faq/upgrade70.html.

Smile Delay time during interactive update

After downloading amd64/install71.img, copying it to a usb stick and booting it up for an update, there was a long wait.

Just after the tgz packages were installed and the devices were created the system appeared to just hang....

After a long while a message came back saying that fw_update had just run.

So be patient after the devices are created.

Other than that the whole process was very smooth.
When you see a good move, look for a better one.

Ran a trouble-free sysupgrade from 7.0 to 7.1 arm64 on Raspberry Pi 4 in under 20 minutes, including taking extra time to read a few things in more detail.

Packages took longer: I have xfce4, xfce4-extras and a few other packages installed.

xfce4 screen freezing (not an OpenBSD problem, an Xfce one) still needs action to reimplement a workaround after an OS upgrade followed by pkg_add -u. The way I get around it is:

# chmod -x /usr/local/bin/xfce4-screensaver*
# chmod -x /usr/local/bin/upower
This allows me to manually lock from the Xfce panel, password protected, but no screensaver runs, I just have a blank screen. I haven't found a real fix yet, just this work around, but it works for me.

Next is to get OpenBSD installed on a desktop or laptop again, after the desktop I had it installed on died.
