The FreeBSD development team is now busy working on the project's next major release, FreeBSD 7. This release is expected to contain a large number of radical new features, including a port of the ZFS file system and DTrace diagnostic tool from Solaris, as well as substantial performance enhancements. Those of you who are interested in learning about the changes in the rapidly evolving FreeBSD 7 branch should bookmark the 'What's cooking for FreeBSD 7?' page, which attempts to summarise the recent commits by the project's developers. FreeBSD 7.0 is scheduled for release in late 2007.
