What's New

This is a partial list of new features and systems included in OpenBSD 4.6. For a comprehensive list, see the changelog leading to 4.6.

    * New/extended platforms:
          o mvme68k
                + Added support for the MVME141 and MVME165 boards.
          o sparc
                + The bootblock load address was moved so that larger kernels can be loaded.
          o sparc64
                + Added acceleration support for many of the PCI frame buffer drivers, such as Sun PGX, PGX64 and XVR-100, and Tech Source Raptor GFX graphics cards.
          o sgi
                + Added support for the SGI Octane, SGI Origin 200 and SGI Fuel families of systems.
                + Several bugs in interrupt handling have been fixed, resulting in much snappier system response.

    * Improved hardware support, including:
          o Several new/improved drivers for sensors, including:
                + The ips(4) driver now has sensor support, complementing the bio support.
                + The acpithinkpad(4) driver now has temperature and fan sensor support.
                + New endrun(4) driver for the EndRun Technologies timedelta sensor.

          o Added support for 82574L based devices in the em(4) driver.
          o A number of network drivers including ix(4), sis(4), msk(4), bnx(4), and vr(4) now use MCLGETI(9) to reduce memory usage and increase performance under load and attack.
          o Added support for VIA CX800 south bridge to the viapm(4) driver.
          o Added support in em(4) for the newer 82575 (and maybe 82576) chips.
          o zyd(4) now supports devices with Airoha AL2230S radios.
          o zyd(4) now works on big-endian machines
          o urtw(4) now supports RTL8187B based devices.
          o New otus(4) driver for Atheros AR9001U USB 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N wireless devices.

          o New udl(4) driver for USB video devices.
          o Support for a variety of newer models in bge(4).
          o Initial version of vsw(4), a driver for the virtual network switch on sun4v sparc64s.
          o Implemented machfb(4), an accelerated driver for the sparc64 PGX/PGX64 framebuffers.
          o Added a vcc(4) and vcctty(4) driver for the "Virtual Console Concentrator" found on the control domain of sun4v systems.
          o Implemented 64-bit FIFO modes for ciss(4) devices.
          o Enable hardware VLAN tagging/stripping on ix(4).
          o Added basic support for Envy24HT chips in the envy(4) driver.
          o Many improvements and updates to the isp(4) driver.
          o Added support for 88E8057-based Yukon 2 Ultra 2-devices in msk(4).
          o The ips(4) driver now works reliably.
          o Added raptor(4), an accelerated framebuffer driver for the Tech Source Raptor GFX cards on the sparc64 platform.
          o Enabled schsio(4) on i386 and amd64 and added watchdog timer support.
          o New acpivideo(4) driver for ACPI display switching and brightness control.

    * New tools:
          o Added smtpd(8), a new privilege-separated SMTP daemon.
          o Imported the tmux(1) terminal multiplexer, replacing window(1).

    * pf(4) improvements:
          o Enabled pf(4) by default in the rc.conf(8).
          o Removed pf(4) scrub rules, and only do one kind of packet reassembly. Rulesets with scrub rules need to be modified because of this.
          o Regular rules can now have per-rule scrub options.
          o Added new "match" keyword which only applies rule options but does not change the current pass/block state.
          o Make all pf(4) operations transactional to improve atomicity of reloads.
          o Stricter pf(4) checking for ICMP and ICMPv6 packets.
          o Various improvements to pfsync(4) to lower sync traffic bandwidth and optionally allow active-active firewall setups.
          o Fix pf(4) scrub max-mss for IPv6 traffic.

    * OpenBGPD, OpenOSPFD and other routing daemon improvements:
          o In bgpd(8), rework most of the RDE to allow multiple RIBs. It is possible to filter per-RIB and attach neighbors to a specific RIB.
          o Added an option to bgpd(8) to change the "connect-retry" timer.
          o Allow bgpd.conf(5) and bgpctl(8) to contain 32-bit ASN numbers written in ASPLAIN format.
          o Fix bgpd(8) to correctly encode MP unreachable NLRI so IPv6 prefixes get removed correctly.
          o Changed the behaviour of "redistribute default" for ospfd(8) and ripd(8). A default route has to be present in the FIB to be correctly advertised.
          o Make ospfd(8) and ripd(8) track reject and blackhole routes and allow them to be redistributed even if pointing to
          o Allow to specify an alternate control socket for ospfd(8).
          o ospfd(8) can now be bound into an alternate routing domain.
          o Fix ospfd(8) route metric for "redistribute default".
          o Initial version of ldpctl(8) and ldpd(8), a label distribution protocol daemon for mpls.
          o Make dvmrp(8) RDE aware of multicast group members per interface.
          o Support for pruning in dvmrp(8).

    * Generic Network-Stack improvements:
          o Support for virtual routing and firewalling with the addition of routing domains.
          o Add code in ifconfig(8) to bind an interface to a routing domain.
          o Add support to ping(8), traceroute(8), arp(8), nc(1) and telnet(1) to specify which routing domain to use.
          o Allow ifconfig(8) to turn off IPv6 completely for an interface and make rtsold(8) turn on inet6 on the interface.
          o Routes track the interface link state.
          o route(8) flush accepts "-iface" or "-priority" to only flush routes matching these conditions.
          o Multiple dhclients can now coexist without causing mayhem.
          o Make wireless interfaces have an interface priority of 4 by default. Makes them less preferred then wired interfaces.
          o Do not accept IPv4 ICMP redirects by default.
          o Added the MAC address to the log entries in dhclient(8).
          o Make systat(1) show interface description names in the interface view, and add new NFS server and client views.
          o Make tun(4) emulate link state depending on the open and close of the device fd.
          o Use pf state-table information to speed up decision on whether a packet is to be delivered locally or forwarded.
          o More routing socket checks added to make userland applications more resilient to kernel changes.

    * Install/Upgrade process changes:
          o New disklabel(8) automatic partition allocator with a variety of smart heuristics.
          o The installer has been nearly rewritten mostly with a focus on simplifying installation.

    * OpenSSH 5.3:
          o Do not limit home directory paths to 256 characters. (bz #1615)
          o Several minor documentation and correctness fixes.

    * Over 5,800 ports, minor robustness improvements in package tools.
