BSD and Darwin derivatives The DragonFly 2.4 release was released just today. One can choose from a bare-bones CD ISO, a DVD ISO that includes an X environment, and a bare-bones bootable USB drive image. In addition, this is the first time DragonFlyBSD has had a 64-bit ISO. 64-bit support is stable, but there will only be limited pkgsrc support in the current release. All versions of the release can all be downloaded from one of the many mirrors.

I'm surprised by how much work such a small team is able to get done. I've tried the DF through Virtual Box and it is quite responsive even in a virtual machine.

The only thing that is stopping me from using it is the lack of nvidia drivers. Without the drivers the fan on my card runs full blast 100% of the time.

There is actually project allowing you to run the nvidia freebsd driver on dragonfly. its currently broken due to the devfs change though. ive used it previously and it worked.
