FreeBSD

There has been a lot of maturing technologies in FreeBSD 10, with many new features which make this release, I think, the most exciting one in years. A lot of development has gone into virtualisation support. Virtualisation with FreeBSD Jails has been available for a long time, but not so much "full virtualisation".

Let's have a look at the some of the most talked about, most requested and most interesting features that have found their way into or are planned for 10.0, but may not make the deadline.

The binary repos are back, and have been since May 14th.

I don't think there was ever a pkgng repo planned for 9.x, since such large changes tend to be saved for major releases. Using the regular pkg tools currently works exactly as I described.

Also, like I said, there's always the PC-BSD repos if you want stock software. If you pull KDE from the PC-BSD repo, you won't get the PC-BSD customized version - you'll get stock KDE as if you built it in ports.
