Having just returned to have another go with OpenBSD, I have ordered the 2nd edition, the one I have is from 2003.

I am hoping not too much change has happened since its publication, 2013, as I believe it was written for 5.4. (5.7 to be released in May, I read somewhere.)
Linux since 1999, & also a BSD user.

Thank you!
He seems to be busy with FreeBSD.... Ah, well....I was looking for a more recent
compendium; until now I got only hold of an outdated german book about OpenBSD and
Negus/Caen BSD Unix Toolbox.
