On OpenBSD 6.3

Hello and welcome to another entry in the Whole Net Digest! Today I’ll be talking about OpenBSD 6.3.

As this is a point release and not a major version increase, what’s changed isn’t anything significant(By user standards, anyway), but there were some nice ssh enhancements and vmm improvements. I plan to test the vmm virtual machine, seeing as last time it didn’t work. In the changelog it said that there was ISO support added, so I can’t wait to try that out! Apparently URI settings were added to ssh, so that’s good. URI’s would be like “ssh://user@host:”, just for those not in the know.

I still need to work on learning PF and I would like learn to how OpenBSD’s httpd works while it’s in a chroot. I don’t know if Absolute OpenBSD covers chroots though, I’ll have to look into it.

This was a short post, but I feel I’ve covered the changes that users would care about mostly.
