The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce that NetBSD 1.6.1 has been
branched and the release engineering process has begun.  NetBSD 1.6.1 is
a maintenance (or patch) release for users of NetBSD 1.6, not to be
confused with NetBSD-current (which will become the next major release).
As a patch release, it is not branched off the head of the CVS source
tree, but instead includes all security fixes and patches applied to the
1.6 branch.

A complete list of changes since 1.6 is available in
src/doc/CHANGES-1.6.1 of the branch, which can be checked out by passing
the '-rnetbsd-1-6-PATCH001-RC1' flag to the cvs command:

cvs co -rnetbsd-1-6-PATCH001-RC1 src

Details on the release cycle and status information is available from
