FreeBSD 9.3 Released

Comments Filter:
  • There is a FreeBSD/arm project []. Whether it will work on your particular hardware — and recognize all of the peripherals you care for, that's another topic...

    It is a "Tier 2" — so there are no official builds for it, for example.

    It is a "Tier 1" for NetBSD [], so you may have better luck there. They even distinguish between "ARM evaluation boards" (evbarm []) and "StrongARM based Windows CE PDA machines" (hpcarm []). I'm sure, OpenBSD is similar in this regard, but I'm tired of copy-pasting links...

    9.2 EOL has been moved to the end of the year allowing a longer migration period for those still running the stable 9 branch.
    I'm running 10 with zfs-on-boot in production. working excellently .. as expected ..thanks BSD.
    For the usual knockers, give it go ! - though i do admit that non-tier-1 such as ARM, could pose challenging.
    like all choices, fit for purpose.

    LibreSSL is not even a mature project. FreeBSD doesn't change things on a whim... well sometimes they do but they warn users like 2 years in advance:
    Dropping GCC for Clang
    putting LZMA into the base system (thereby screwing up everyone upgrading from 8.x to 8.3 and beyond)
    Changing all the version numbers in the source code for no damn reason.
