The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce the release of NetBSD 1.4.2.

This release fixes problems found in the earlier 1.4.x family of releases, including some security issues. We urge users to upgrade their systems. NetBSD 1.4.2 includes important changes on many architectures.

The release binaries and source are available now, and can be found on mirror sites across the world. Please use a mirror close to you. A gzipped patch is available, containing all of the changes to the main system sources since 1.4.1 (just 'src'; not including X or package source changes).

NetBSD 1.4.2 contains a number of new features, which have been imported from the main NetBSD development branch since NetBSD 1.4.1 was released, including:

Additionally, more than 120 formally reported problems have been fixed since NetBSD 1.4.1, and NetBSD 1.4.2 also contains fixes for a lot of non-reported problems discovered by developers and others during the NetBSD 1.4.2 release cycle.

A full list of all the changes applied between NetBSD 1.4.1 and NetBSD 1.4.2 can be found in

Please see the INSTALL note for your architecture(s) for further information, especially for the known caveats with this release.

Please also note that the LAST_MINUTE file in the main release directory contains pointers to last minute changes which did not make the source cutoff date.
