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.

There are lots of smaller features that are not mentioned there and that are really nice: improved DTrace, read-only support fot ext4 extents, ipfilter update. Also the read-only support for XFS is gone.

The picture will only be complete when the Release Notes are out.

read-only support fot ext4 extents

Ext4 write support is already possible with sysutils/fusefs-ex4fuse port using FUSE.

If you mean ext4fuse, it is read-only.

The FreeBSD kernel driver has received many improvements for this release and should be much faster than the fuse version.
