Greetings, The NetBSD Foundation has initiated a contract with Kamil Rytarowski to complete the following during it: 1. Add missing interfaces in ptrace(2), mostly sync it with the FreeBSD capabilities, add ATF tests, add documentation. 2. Develop process plugin in LLDB based on the FreeBSD code in LLDB and make it functional (start passing at least some tests). 3. Revamp the process plugin in LLDB for new remote debugging capabilities (in order to get it accepted and merged upstream), pass more tests. 4. LLDB x86 support, pass more of the standard LLDB tests and import LLDB to the NetBSD base. Add some ATF LLDB basic functionality tests to the tree. The original tests are unreliable and generate false positives. 5. Develop missing features needed for .NET (POSIX robust mutexes), add ATF tests. 6. Develop missing features for VirtualBox as host, including needing sigevent(2) on par with POSIX and SIGEV_KEVENT, and other real-time AIO related interfaces as needed. 7. Port Apple's Swift programming language. Enhance .NET port to validate new interface and correct more issues as needed. 8. Improve VirtualBox host support. Make it build first by disabling missing features of providing empty facades for them. 9. Implement CDROM, floppy, NIC support for NetBSD in VBox as host. 10. Make VirtualBox runnable at least with a restricted feature set, ship it in pkgsrc, and submit it upstream. The NetBSD Foundation will continue to work diligently with the community to fund projects furthering specific key and quality improvements to the NetBSD projects. We have a list of projects at http://wiki.netbsd.org/projects/ as well as welcome other proposals to move our flag forward to next releases! Thank you to Kamil for committing to it and we all look forward to it! The NetBSD Foundation is a non-profit organization and welcomes any donations to help us continue to fund projects and services to the open-source community.

The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce NetBSD 7.0.2, the second security/bugfix update of the NetBSD 7.0 release branch. It represents a selected subset of fixes deemed important for security or stability reasons. If you are running an earlier release of NetBSD, we strongly suggest updating to 7.0.2.
For more details, please see the release notes.
Complete source and binaries for NetBSD are available for download at many sites around the world. A list of download sites providing FTP, AnonCVS, SUP, and other services may be found at http://www.NetBSD.org/mirrors/.
