Subject: Announcing the release of NetBSD 1.1.
Date: Sun, 26 Nov 1995 22:40:07 -0800
I am pleased to announce that the culmination of a over a year of
active development and two months of release engineering has come
together to form the eagerly awaited NetBSD 1.1 Release.
NetBSD 1.1 contains many improvements over the previous release,
including 64 bit clean code thanks to a port to the DEC Alpha; a
disk driver that can concatenate or interleave multiple disks for
high performance disk arrays; a binary emulation facility so that
executables for many commercial (and other free) operating systems
can run on NetBSD; a new generic audio subsystem; and hundreds of
bug fixes and enhancements.
NetBSD 1.1 is available for download via ftp from ftp.netbsd.org in
the directory pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-1.1. The release will be available
from NetBSD ftp mirrors soon.
Many thanks go to the NetBSD developers for making this release
Even more thanks go to the many NetBSD users who have supported
NetBSD with their enthusiasm, evangelism, and contributions.
