Screen has never been the part of the base OpenBSD installation. Window was the part of the OpenBSD installation from around 4.3. I believe even though it
has been the part of base of NetBSD since probably late 90s. tmux is replacing
window.

Correct. My reference was to paraphrase Reyk's statement in the following:

http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=124421848024070&w=2

...plus, many people (& threads...) here are familiar with screen(1) as a way to maintain connections independent of shell instances.

...& for the record, tmux(1) was previously available as a port as well. It, too, has been moved into the base installation.

There are many changes that'll be in 4.6 that I'm quite happy about, tmux is just icing.

The window program seems to date back to 4.3BSD, but I've never cared much for it. tmux hopefully will be more useful. The feature set of tmux looks much closer to GNU screen but under a BSD style license. Who knows, maybe we can stop installing screen on our OpenBSD boxes ;-). I've always found window somewhat awkward to use compared to a shell with job-control.



(crud, this reminds me my OpenBSD box is still chugging along on 4.4 !)

Give me autumn - not blazing hot as summer and not the bitter cold of Southwestern Ontario winter, and no allergens of spring!

Is screen being - erm, for lack of a better word - "shunned" for being GNU licensed?

Yes, especially where there's the much nicer alternative, BSD-licensed, tmux available.

Snapshots of current branch of OpenBSD for popular architectures are build every couple of days. They are available 24/7/365 for the past 13 years. You can also build OpenBSD from source from the most recent code (something like 5 minutes old) any time day or night.

Hmm I guess my ISP's mirror are just a bit behind then. Still 4.5 here last modified 21 June.

(I prefer to use my ISP's mirror as we unfortunately have internet quotas here, so some ISP provide mirror that does not count towards your quota.)

As of this moment, I have not seen a call for testing on misc@ or tech@. That will probably happen once snaps for all seventeen architectures are available.

Looking at the ur-mirror, ftp.openbsd.org, I can see that at the moment, 4.6-beta snaps are still pending for minor archs: armish, hp300, landisk, mac68k, mvme68k, mvme88k, sgi, socppc, sparc, vax, and zaurus.
