Panther will deliver improved performance for key network services. Darwin 7, the latest version of Apple's open source UNIX-based core operating system, incorporates numerous bug-fixes and enhancements to the FreeBSD 4.8 kernel, as well as some of the latest advances from FreeBSD 5, such as improved reentrancy for improved scalability and the kqueue/kevent mechanism for monitoring kernel events. For improved file and networking system performance Panther Server now supports asynchronous I/O, up to 16TB file systems and Jumbo Frames for large Ethernet packets.
