FreeBSD 10.1 Has The New VT Driver, Hardware Improvements

Released this past week was the first beta of FreeBSD 10.1. If you haven't yet had time to explore this development release, there's a lot of improvements over FreeBSD 10.0. Here's some of the features that interest us the most about this forthcoming FreeBSD 10 update: - The driver for FreeBSD's new VT console has been added. The new VT hasn't been enabled by default but for now still requires setting a special parameter. - The ported-from-Linux Radeon DRM/KMS driver now has support for 32-bit ioctls so 32-bit OpenGL applications are able to run on a 64-bit FreeBSD system. - Various hardware-related improvements from Turbo Boost enabled Intel CPUs to PowerPC 970 CPUs to Atom Silvermont to Apple books saw different changes. - Bhyve virtualization improvements. Find out more about the recent FreeBSD 10 changes via the stable release notes. FreeBSD 10.1 is expected for an official unveiling on 29 October. Read more
