BSD and Darwin derivatives

The new release includes new USB stack (USB4BSD), which supports USB3; updated video drivers for Intel and AMD cards (although latter are still disabled by default); binaries in /bin and /sbin are now dynamic, allowing for PAM and NSS. The HAMMER2 filesystem is also included, but not ready for general use just yet.

The 32bit edition is now deprecated. Reflects that they are targeting newer server roles.


Reflect that is extra work to maintain x86 that a few cares of. I'm personally still working on x86 OS-es, but lets face it: it's nearly over.

Sadly this is making all of my old PC servers slowly obsolete.

Why? There's tons of stable software that will run on them, surely. Just because the latest-greatest tech doesn't run on your servers any more, it does not mean they are obselete.

Well OpenBSD still supports freaking VAXen from the 1970s, so your 32-bit x86 servers will have a nice Free *nix for many years to come.

Well, 32 bit has been obsolete in my line of work for a good 7 years or so. That 4 GB memory limit is killer. PAX or no PAX.
