NetBSD, a free, fast, secure, and highly portable UNIX-like open source OS available for a wide range of platforms, from large-scale servers and desktop systems to handheld and embedded devices, is now at version 6.0.1.

NetBSD 6.0.1 is the first maintenance update in the 6.x branch, and implements quite a few critical fixes, either with regard to security or for stability reasons, plus some new features and enhancements.

Highlights of NetBSD 6.0.1:

• Processes with attributes have been fixed;
• Races between vget() and vrele() resulting in vget() returning dead vnodes, have been fixed;
• A crash which occurred when unsupported fd's were used with kevent has been repaired;
• "Atomic fragments" for IPv6 have bee fixed.

A complete list of the changes can be found in the official announcement.
