Submission + - FreeBSD 7.1 released->

Sol-Invictus writes: The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the availability of FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE. This is the second release from the 7-STABLE branch which improves on the functionality of FreeBSD 7.0 and introduces some new features. Some of the highlights: * The ULE scheduler is now the default in GENERIC kernels for amd64 and i386 architectures. The ULE scheduler significantly improves performance on multicore systems for many workloads. * Support for using DTrace inside the kernel has been imported from OpenSolaris. DTrace is a comprehensive dynamic tracing framework. * A new and much-improved NFS Lock Manager (NLM) client. * Boot loader changes allow, among other things, booting from USB devices and booting from GPT-labeled devices. * The cpuset(2) system call and cpuset(1) command have been added, providing an API for thread to CPU binding and CPU resource grouping and assignment. * KDE updated to 3.5.10, GNOME updated to 2.22.3. * DVD-sized media for the amd64 and i386 architectures
