FreeBSD è un avanzato sistema operativo per moderne piattaforme server, desktop, ed embedded. Il codice di FreeBSD ha subito più di trent´anni di continui sviluppi, miglioramenti, e ottimizzazioni.

Note di rilascio

The third RC build of the 10.1-RELEASE release cycle is now available
on the FTP servers for the amd64, armv6, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64
and sparc64 architectures.

The image checksums follow at the end of this email.

Installer images and memory stick images are available here:

If you notice problems you can report them through the Bugzilla PR
system or on the -stable mailing list.

If you would like to use SVN to do a source based update of an existing
system, use the "releng/10.1" branch.

A list of changes since 10.0-RELEASE are available here:

Important note to those upgrading from previous -RC or -BETA builds:
An API incompatibility was discovered between 10.0-RELEASE and 10.1-RC2
which was reverted prior to 10.1-RC3 builds, and the shared
library version was changed from ´8´ back to ´7´ in the releng/10.1
branch. Please be sure to rebuild any third party software that depends
on this shared library before removing the incorrect version with
freebsd-update(8) or source-based upgrades with ´make delete-old-libs´.

Important note to ZFS users on the i386 architecture: A regression has
been discovered that affects multi-disk (mirror, raidz-1, raidz-2, etc.)
installations that may cause a kernel panic on boot. If using
a multi-disk ZFS setup, adding ´options KSTACK_PAGES=4´ to the kernel
configuration is observed to resolve the problem. Please *do* *not*
upgrade your system with freebsd-update(8) if using a multi-disk ZFS
setup, since this will override the kernel configuration with the
GENERIC kernel.

Some of the changes between 10.1-RC2 and 10.1-RC3 include:

o Several fixes to the UDPLite protocol implementation.

o The vt(4) driver has been updated to save and restore keyboard
mode and LED states when switching windows.

o Several fixes to the SCTP protocol implementation.

o A potential race condition in obtaining a file pointer has been

o Fix ZFS ZVOL deadlock and rename issues.

o Restore ABI compatibility with 10.0-RELEASE.

o Removed the last vestige of MD5 password hashes.

o Several rc(8) script updates and fixes.

o bsdinstall(8) has been updated to allow selecting local_unbound in
the default services to enable at first boot.

o Prevent ZFS leaking pool free space.

o Fix rtsold(8) remote buffer overflow vulnerability. [SA-14:20]

o Fix routed(8) remote denial of service vulnerability. [SA-14:21]

o Fix memory leak in sandboxed namei lookup. [SA-14:22]

o OpenSSL has been updated to version 1.0.1j. [SA-14:23]

o Fix an issue where a FreeBSD virtual machine provisioned in the
Microsoft Azure service does not recognize the second attached
disk on the system.

Pre-installed virtual machine images for 10.1-RC2 are also available
for amd64 and i386 architectures.

The images are located here:

The disk images are available in QCOW2, VHD, VMDK, and raw disk image
formats. The image download size is approximately 135 MB, which
decompress to a 20GB sparse image.

The partition layout is:

. 512k - freebsd-boot GPT partition type (bootfs GPT label)
. 1GB - freebsd-swap GPT partition type (swapfs GPT label)
. ~17GB - freebsd-ufs GPT partition type (rootfs GPT label)

Note to consumers of the dvd1.iso image: The packages included on the
dvd will not be recognized by bsdconfig(8), and the cause is being
investigated. The packages, however, can be installed manually.

To install packages from the dvd1.iso installer, create and mount the
/dist directory:

# mkdir -p /dist
# mount -t cd9660 /dev/cd0 /dist

Next, install pkg(8) from the DVD:

# env REPOS_DIR=/dist/packages/repos
pkg bootstrap

At this point, pkg-install(8) can be used to install additional packages
from the DVD. Please note, the REPOS_DIR environment variable should be
used each time using the DVD as the package repository, otherwise
conflicts with packages from the upstream mirrors may occur when they
are fetched. For example, to install Gnome and Xorg, run:

# env REPOS_DIR=/dist/packages/repos
pkg install xorg-server xorg gnome2 [...]

The freebsd-update(8) utility supports binary upgrades of amd64 and i386
systems running earlier FreeBSD releases. Systems running earlier
FreeBSD releases can upgrade as follows:

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 10.1-RC3

During this process, freebsd-update(8) may ask the user to help by
merging some configuration files or by confirming that the automatically
performed merging was done correctly.

# freebsd-update install

The system must be rebooted with the newly installed kernel before

# shutdown -r now

After rebooting, freebsd-update needs to be run again to install the new
userland components:

# freebsd-update install

It is recommended to rebuild and install all applications if possible,
especially if upgrading from an earlier FreeBSD release, for example,
FreeBSD 8.x. Alternatively, the user can install misc/compat9x and
other compatibility libraries, afterwards the system must be rebooted
into the new userland:

# shutdown -r now

Finally, after rebooting, freebsd-update needs to be run again to remove
stale files:

# freebsd-update install
