After multiple delays spanning several months, FreeBSD 9.0 is being officially released today. While it comes late, at least there's many significant improvements.
Per the release announcement, some of the FreeBSD 9.0 highlights include:
- A new installer. It's an improvement over the previous installer, but it's still text-based and not really superior to the Debian installer, Red Hat's Anaconda, Ubuntu's Ubiquity, etc. At least the PC-BSD crew has a nice installer for desktop users.
