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.

The FreeBSD Foundation is funding work on "porting" kernel mode setting (KMS), GEM, and other bits to make newer Intel graphics work. There's beta-quality bits available for testing already, with several users reporting success using them.

And there's even someone working on the KMS stuff for the Radeon driver.


That's really good news. It means that if we will have KMS in FreBSD than Wayland is on his way and then we will say bye to X.
