After knowing it was coming for some time, and nearly two months after the NetBSD 6.0 release, NetBSD 5.2 is now available.

NetBSD 5.2 is intended for NetBSD 5.x users who aren't yet ready to upgrade to NetBSD 6.0 with its more invasive changes and new features. NetBSD 5.2 incorporates bug-fixes deemed critical for security and stability reasons as well as some new features and enhancements. NetBSD 5.2 has several noted security fixes, ext2fs supports larger inodes, support for more networking chipsets, an Apple Magic Mouse device driver, a new driver for USB touch-screens, support for NVIDIA controllers with the hdaudio driver, various storage device improvements, and various architecture-specific enhancements.

More information on NetBSD 5.2 can be learned from the 5.2 release notes.
