BSD and Darwin derivatives DragonFly 1.8.0 has been released. The biggest kernel change in this release is the addition of virtual kernel support and a virtual kernel build target. The biggest user-visible changes include updates to third party applications included in the base system, a major rewrite of NULLFS which removes all directory recursion restrictions from mount_null and removes nearly all the kernel resource overhead when using such mounts, and a multi-ip feature for jails.

DragonFlyBSD is creating an amazing infrastructure to support SMP, clustering and kernel virtualization from the scratch. This project is the most vanguardist BSD project currently been developed and in the future will be a competition for very large and scalable Operating Systems (let's say Solaris, HPUX or QNX).

Good work Matt Dillon and team!

Congratulations.
