DragonFly 5.2 is released - here's the release page:


The normal ISO and IMG files are available for download and install,
plus an uncompressed ISO image for those installing remotely.

If you have an existing 5.0.x system and are running a generic kernel,
the normal upgrade process will work.  Change your local /usr/src to

> cd /usr/src
> git fetch origin
> git branch DragonFly_RELEASE_5_2 origin/DragonFly_RELEASE_5_2
> git checkout DragonFly_RELEASE_5_2
> git pull

And then rebuild: (in /usr/src )

> make buildworld
> make buildkernel
> make installkernel
> make installworld
> make upgrade

Don't forget to upgrade your existing packages.

> pkg upgrade
