Here's the tag commit, for what has changed from 5.4.2 to 5.4.3:


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 yesterday so mirrors
should have them now.  This version has a fix for the Intel
floating-point bug, noted in this commit:


There's also brand new packages built for DragonFly, and update steps
are noted for that, below.  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,
which I mention for completeness rather than real need in a bugfix

> cd /usr/src
> make initrd

And here's the update steps for installed packages:

> pkg update
> pkg upgrade
