FreeBSD

FreeBSD 11.1 has been released, and as you can tell by the version number, it's a point release. The release announcement, release notes, and errata are available for your perusal. FreeBSD users already know full well how to upgrade - they're probably already running it - and newcomers can go to the download page to download the proper ISO.

I have run FreeBSD 11.0 on the Raspberry Pi 2. It's stable, it works. One of my few issues with SD card access is a lot slower on FreeBSD than under Raspbian. In the range of five times slower. USB drive access is comparable though.

Basically FreeBSD is a good OS for the Pi, so long as you don't need to do a lot of SD disk access, like you would with, say, compiling.
