We are pleased to announce the official release of OpenBSD 5.0.
This is our 30th release on CD-ROM (and 31th via FTP). We remain
proud of OpenBSD's record of more than ten years with only two remote
holes in the default install.

As in our previous releases, 5.0 provides significant improvements,
including new features, in nearly all areas of the system...

Newcomers & long-time users alike should keep in mind the need to purchase the official CD sets as this is the primary means the OpenBSD project uses to support itself. We all need to be reminded that the OpenBSD project receives no corporate sponsorships. Continuance of the projects highly depends upon these sales.

The sticker set coming with the official CD sets are really cool too!

Yay!

Another way of contributing is donating a small amount of money on a monthly basis.

Recurring PayPal Donations

OpenBSD now also supports recurring payments each month. Consistent donations let us worry less about fund-raising and focus more on development. You can become a member by clicking on this button (you will need a PayPal account):

You can cancel your subscription at any time by clicking this button and follow the instructions. [unsubscribe]
I only have a small part-time job (8 hours a week) at the minimum wage.
Instead of buying the delicious apple pastry from C1000 (4 pieces @ euro 0.50) every Saturday, I now only do it twice in the month and donate the saved amount + 1 euro for the paypal costs on a monthly basis. Besides helping OpenBSD, it also helps me to keep my weight down
