OpenBSD 5.6 was released yesterday and it features the LibreSSL fork of OpenSSL, among many other changes.

Last month on Phoronix I featured the major changes coming for OpenBSD 5.6 so if you didn't read that article yet be sure to do so. OpenBSD 5.6 has LibreSSL, many new drivers and improvements to existing drivers, enhancements to the Intel and Radeon DRM/KMS code, networking improvements, better security, and an assortment of other work.
