I've installed some years ago OpenBSD 5.8 on apu with 3 nics.
I've tried to search but no look. What is the EOL for OpenBSD 5.8?
Thanks in advance.
AFAIK Once 6.0 is out, 5.8 becomes unsupported (EOS). But it by no means
its life ends (EOL). I have just upgraded 2 boxes that were at 5.5,
but were quite alive and kicking :)
Before enlightenment - chop wood, draw water.
After enlightenment - chop wood, draw water.
Then, when 6.1 will be released,
5.9 will become unsupported.
Yep, it won't be getting patches anymore.
We don't. Supporting a release that old would require quite a lot more
volunteers to back-port and test every patch that would apply and we'd
rather not waste resources on supporting the old stuff and use our time
to move the project forward. Upgrading is painless and major changes
are very rare, so I can't think of any compelling reasons to stay on an
old version (well, unless it is the last version your platform supports)
How do you provide to security patch for 5.5?
