FreeBSD developers continue to improve the FreeBSD 6.X operating system branch with the release of version 6.1 this week.
The new release boasts a few new features, some performance enhancements and lots of bug fixes, which will improve the overall stability of the open source operating system.
Though it doesn't receive the same level of attention as its open source cousin Linux, FreeBSD's roots go back somewhat deeper. FreeBSD is in fact one of the earliest open source operating system projects and is a direct descendant of the original open source BSD work performed at the University of California, Berkeley.
Scott Long, FreeBSD release engineer, explained that the 6.1 release is largely about stability.
