FreeBSD 10R

Friday, January 24th, 2014

I faied to mention that FreeBSD 10 was out since 31 January. Here’s the release notes. It includes many new changes, for example unbound, clang and pkg being the default resolver, compiler and package manager, respectively, or other more subtile goodies such as filename completion in sh(1). Yay! BIND, GCC and the old package manager are out. Reasons for this include BIND10 being rewritten in C++ and Python, new versions of GCC being distributed under the more restrictive GPLv3 and the old package manager being old.
