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.

DragonFly BSD will only be in competition with Solaris, AIX or Tru64 when a company is behind it, at best one can say that if these modifications yeild the sought after results then the system will have comparable performance to major operating systems.

Well I'd love to believe that Matt Dillon is a God, I've seen You Me and Dupree, so I'll just wait to see how well the system turns out after he's gotten most of the itches scratched.
