BSD and Darwin derivatives The first BETA build of the 9.0-RELEASE release cycle is now available. One of the many new features in 9.0 that needs thorough testing is the new installer, so fresh installs on test systems are being encouraged. Ivan Voras has taken the time to thoroughly document all the 9.0 changes at his web site.

Fix for Mixed Controllers?

I'd REALLY REALLY like to run PC-BSD 9. I couldn't get version 8.x to work because my pc has mixed controllers and there was apparently a bug that prevented the product from booting in this scenario. I sure hope they fixed that in version 9.

Ivan's recollection is good but far from complete. The main updates that are attractive for me are:

- The new ZFS v28: actually the last that SUN/oracle made available under the previous community model.
- The gcc (4.2.2-pre) and binutils(2.17.5o) updates: the last toolchain version available under the GPLv2.

There's also a new BSD-licensed ext2fs implementation, but a complete summary will only be available with the Release notes when 9.0 is released.

The ZFS v28 is actually listed under Other changes: ZFS updated to version 28 (pjd)
