OpenBSD 5.2 Released

OpenBSD 5.2 was released yesterday; That means it's time to update the OpenBSD Apache/MySQL/PHP page!

Some changes I noticed right away while updating the walk-through:

  • pkg_add defaults to interactive mode. For example, when trying to resolve ambiguous packages (multiple versions available in the repository), it prompts you for which package you want to install. It will also do this for dependencies, and may ask other questions during installation.
  • The MySQL Server package comes with an optional-use script to help lock down MySQL and remove all test data. 

You can see the detailed changelog for more details. I noticed that nginx ships by default now, and that there have been other improvements all around. This post is even coming from within Chrome on OpenBSD 5.2.
