FreeBSD 7.2 Review: Improved Virtualization

Posted on in Categories FreeBSD, Hardware, News, package management last updated May 4, 2009

FreeBSD is just plain old good UNIX with rock solid networking stack. It is quite popular amongst hosting companies, ISPs, portals (such as Yahoo) and a few large financial institutions because of its reliability, robustness and performance.

A new version of the FreeBSD is scheduled for release next week (4-May-2009). A beta 2 was made available for download few weeks ago for final round of testing before the official launch.

From the FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE AnnouncementIt is my great pleasure and privilege to announce the availability of FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE. This release is the next step in the development of the 6.X branch, delivering several performance improvements, many bugfixes, and a few new features as follows“:

  1. Addition of a keyboard multiplexer. This allows USB and PS/2 keyboards to coexist without any special options at boot.
  2. Many fixes for filesystem stability. High load stress tests are now run successfully on a regular basis as part of the normal FreeBSD QA process.
  3. Automatic configuration for man Bluetooth devices, as well as automatic support for running WiFi access points.
  4. Addition of drivers for new ethernet and SAS and SATA RAID controllers.
  5. BIND updated to 9.3.2
  6. sendmail updated to 8.13.6
