FreeBSD 6.0 Released

FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE Release Notes

FreeBSD 6.0 has been released! This is quite exciting, as they have been doing a lot of hard work on this release.

From Scott Long's email to the mailinglist:
"It is my great pleasure and privilege to announce the availability of
FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE. This release is the next step in delivering the
high performance and enterprise features that have been under
development in the FreeBSD 5.x series for that last several years.
Some of the many changes since 5.4 include:

~ Significant performance improvements to the filesystem and direct disk
access layers of the OS. The filesystem is now multithreaded and can
take full advantage of multiple CPU systems.
~ Expanded support for wireless networking adapters and new support for
the WPA wireless security protocol.
~ Experimental support for the PowerPC platform."
