No, .99 kernels are -current. See:
I read that, and I don't understand why the current snapshot gives me
a kernel with 3.0_BETA. Why is there a 3.0_x at all if 2.99 is
current? What does 3.0_BETA represent?
Anyway, question for the developers, which one should I install to get
the latest and greatest that works and has the most recent hardware
support, even if it is not stable? I can't seem to find anything that
would get me a 3.99.x anymore. In fact, I got this from Nikos after my
previous attempt came up with a kernel which wouldn't detect wd0.
Anyway, if someone can just give me the URL on the NetBSD server where
I should go to get the kernel and sets.
