OpenBSD-current just turned 5.0-beta, providing us a preview of what the upcoming release (slated for November 1st) will look like.

"Before you start getting all worked up about an upcoming dot-zero release, I'll tell you right away: Don't. Or maybe just a little bit. Release numbering in OpenBSD simply does not work the way most people expect. For this upcoming release, slated for general availability via FTP and other download methods on November 1, 2011 (and CD in pre-orderers' hands up to about two weeks earlier), 5.0 was simply the next available version number increment. OpenBSD releases every six months like clockwork, with the version number incremented by exactly 0.1 each time."
