The FreeBSD status report for the fourth quarter of 2006 has been mailed on January 16. Fortunately, there has been so much activity that a roundup would take almost as long to read as the original, so I’m not going to waste your time. Nevertheless I want to mention some highlights:

  • ZFS is now functional, ACLs are the next item on the ToDO list.
  • The Linux Compatibility Environment is being upgraded to Linux kernel version 2.6 while several improvements have been made for kernel version 2.4
  • 7.2 is coming to FreeBSD! The team estimates the merge into the ports tree with end of January.
  • It is planned to make TrustedBSD Audit a production feature for the FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE
