Default 5.5 SHA256.sig message

During the installation of OpenBSD 5.5 amd64 today, I encountered a message which I haven't seen before:

Directory does not contain SHA256.sig. Continue without verification? [no]

You're attempting to install a new release that contains new features. One of those features is cryptographically signed a) releases, b) snapshots, c) patches, and d) packages. All of these use the new signify(1) program and related infrastructure, which for releases, snapshots, and packages, includes a signed checksum file SHA256.sig.

See FAQs 1.9, 3.5, 15.3.11, and the Upgrade Guide: 5.4 to 5.5.
