Every OpenBSD release since 3.0 (back in 2001) has had at least one relase song, and OpenBSD 6.1 is no different. Today, Theo de Raadt released the OpenBSD 6.1. The Songs page
has download links, lyrics and a background story, which reads:
OpenBSD was only a few months old when we realized that read-only repository access for everyone was a critical concept.

to sum up the various ways one could run which version of which firefox
on which version of OpenBSD.

A series of commits, culminating in this one, have seen clang(1) added to the base system (as a non-default compiler) on

GhostBSD - April 15, 2017, 5:00 pm UTC
The next major version of GhostBSD will feature our software package repositories instead of continuing to use those from FreeBSD, and it is the primary reason for the delay of the release.
