FreeBSD Some people already submitted this news last week, but it wasn't until today that it became official: the FreeBSD team has announced the release of FreeBSD version 9.0. As you may expect from the major version number change, this is releas eis packed with new stuff.

You need to watch the LLVM video regarding FreeBSD - it has nothing to do with 'loving' or 'hating' anything but the reality that there are some companies that use FreeBSD which have a no GPL3 or GPL policy and thus it is one area that needs to be addressed.


The project needs an up to date and maintainable compiler/toolchain that meets the projects requirements and with GCC past 4.2.1/binutils past 2.17 that is no longer possible. It's a much bigger issue than just some companies having an issue with GPL'd code.
