Much of the development work done this quarter was not particularly visible, especially the effort needed to ensure the upcoming 11.1 release has as few regressions as possible. Planning is also well under way for the 10.4 maintenance release which will quickly follow it.

Further work focused on moving the arm architectures' support closer to tier-1 status and improving documentation. In addition, large changes were made to the src and ports trees.

Their past couple of releases have been pretty solid. I can’t wait for their newest, although I hope the installation gets some love as well, sometimes it’s hairpulling on some hardware that’s been supported for a while, but I do get that their community is smaller on QA than that of Linux.

I'm hoping for more work being completed on Power8 systems. Currently it runs decently enough under virtualization, but it doesn't run on bare metal just yet.
