FreeBSD 5.2-delphij to release third iso
I will release third (more or less unstable) release ISO if nothing will prevent me from doing that :-) The latest delphijfork includes several new features, which is tend to exhibit new technologies and possiblities of FreeBSD:
- An implementation of RFC 3522 ported from DragonFlyBSD
- An implementation of Early Retransmission ported from DragonFlyBSD
Also, FreeBSD-CURRENT has several new features, including:
- In progress import of binutils 2.15
- pf 3.5. Including several new features and works better with spamd.
- better ACPI support
While this snapshot is claimed to be “unstable”, it should be quite stable. If you have found any problem, please let me know, or send-pr directly if you are sure that it’s not my fault :-P
This release would be built with -O2 optimized world, as long as some of my usual optimizes. It should run faster than FreeBSD-CURRENT because I have turned off several debug options.
I will upload the release after the release build is completed. You are encouraged to deploy this release on non-critical servers having heavy load. The current snapshot is quite stable by this time, and if you have some unlucky findings, you will guarantee that you will receive a much more stable 5.3-RELEASE.
