After going into beta in March, the second and final beta release of NetBSD 6.0 is now available.

NetBSD 6.0 Beta 2 carries a healthy number of fixes over the original NetBSD 6 beta with these changes being scattered across the board from fixing AMD CPU errata to security fixes and audio bugs.

For those that missed the original NetBSD 6.0 article, features of this new BSD release include an updated X.Org stack, GCC 4.5.3 as the default compiler, Logical Volume Manager (LVM) support, support for 64-bit MIPS, compatibility with new ARM SoCs, and much more.
