Here's the tag commit, for what has changed from 5.4.1 to 5.4.2:


The normal ISO and IMG files are available for download and install,
plus an uncompressed ISO image for those installing remotely.  I
uploaded them to mirror-master.dragonflybsd.org last night so they
should be at your local mirror or will be soon.  This version includes
Matt's fix for the HAMMER2 corruption bug he identified recently.

If you have an existing 5.4 system and are running a generic kernel,
the normal upgrade process will work.

> cd /usr/src
> git pull

And then rebuild: (in /usr/src )

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

After your next reboot, you can optionally update your rescue system:

> cd /usr/src
> make initrd

As always, make sure your packages are up to date:

> pkg update
> pkg upgrade
