10 Interesting Features For FreeBSD 10
While FreeBSD 9.2 is expected in about one month for release, further out in the pipeline is FreeBSD 10.0 and with it will come many new end-user features.
It's not yet been determined when FreeBSD 10.0 will be released, but given their past release cadence, this next major FreeBSD operating system should arrive in 2014. Among the features so far include:
- The Bhyve hypervisor for FreeBSD virtualization will be present in FreeBSD 10. The Bhyve hypervisor was developed from scratch for BSD and offers a lightweight low-level HVM virtualization means for FreeBSD. Bhyve supports the latest AMD and Intel virtualization extensions and supports VirtIO for para-virtualization.
