Major new features in this release include:

  • Continued support for Apple Silicon, though not to a production-ready level yet.
  • Improved handling for kernel config and kernel tracing on some platforms.
  • Increased vmd (OpenBSD’s virtualization hypervisor) features, including support for up to 512 allocated vcpus.
  • Support for new hardware periphrials.
  • Many bug fixes.
