Other major changes included an M: N native threading implementation called Kernel Scheduled Entities (KSE).

BSDi lawsuit settlement), new installer, new boot manager, support for more filesystems (MS-DOS, unionfs, kernfs), 64-bit offsets for large filesystems, loadable filesystems, imported loadable kernel modules from Net BSDrevamped VM system, full NIS client and server support, transaction TCP support, ISDN support, support for FDDI and Fast Ethernet (100Mbit) adapters, multi-lingual documentation, Free BSD Ports bundled with installation mediasymmetric multiprocessing (SMP), CAM (Common Access Method) SCSI system, ELF executables, secure RPC, ATAPI/IDE CD burner and tape drive support, VESA video modes, Perl 5 replaced Perl 4 in base system, Kerberos IVaddition of jails, IPv6 support and IPsec with KAME (applications were also updated to support IPv6), Open SSH integrated into the base system, new ATA/ATAPI driver (for all ATA compliant disks and ATAPI CDROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, LS120, ZIP and tape drives), emulator for SVR4 binary files, burncd, USB ethernet adapter support, accept() filters, telnet encryption TCP improvements (throughput, performance, and Denial-of-service mitigation), Soft updates enabled by default, improved Linux emulation, boot loader updated to boot from filesystems with 16K disk blocks (from 8K)support for Ultra SPARC and IA-64 processors, SMP support via changes to kernel locking (release most of kernel from the Giant lock), GEOM, Kernel Scheduled Entities, Mandatory Access Control imported from Trusted BSD, background fsck, Bluetooth, ACPI, Card Bus, devfs, UFS2 support, support for Universal Disk Format, drivers for Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI), Pluggable Authentication Modules, remove support for 80386 in default kernel, removal of kernfs and UUCP, traditional BSD games moved from base to Free BSD Ports, Perl removed from base system, imported rc.d framework from Net BSD, addition of BSDPAN, cdboot boot loader used by defaultexperimental support for AMD64, experimental 1:1 and M: N thread libraries for multithreaded processing, experimental Name Service Switch, Physical Address Extensions, GEOM and devfs mandatory, IPv6 support in Linux emulator, experimental ULE scheduler, removed support for Xerox Network Systems, CAM layer support for devices with more than 2AMD64 a Tier1 supported architecture, updated swap pager, Protocol Independent Multicast, updates to IPv6, IPSec and Bluetooth, major changes to ata driver (removed from Giant lock), NFSv4 client support, start of Turkish document translation, ALTQ, multi-threaded and reentrant network and socket subsystems, addition of new debugging framework KDB, dynamic and static linker support for Thread Local Storage, import pf from Open BSD, binary compatibility interface for native execution of NDIS drivers, replace XFree86 with 6.7, sound card driver reorganization, cryptography enabled by default in baseexperimental support for Power PC, WPA wireless security, more wireless networking adapter drivers, complete support for 802.11g, 802.11i, 802.1x and WME/WMM, filesystem and direct disk access performance improvementssupport for Xbox architecture, Open BSM, security event auditing, IPFW packet tagging, freebsd-update (binary updates for security fixes and errata patches), Open IPMI (see Intelligent Platform Management Interface)support for Camellia cipher, boot loader changes (enabling booting from USB devices, and GPT-labeled devices with GPT-enabled BIOSes), malloc buffer corruption protection, DVD install ISO images for AMD64 and i386Userland DTrace, substitute GCC with Clang and LLVM for base system, USB 3.0 support, UFS Soft Updates Journal, moving ATA disk drivers to the CAM system, update ZFS to version 28, replaced sysinstall with bsdinstall.This released much of the kernel from the MP lock, which is sometimes called the Giant lock.More than one process could now execute in kernel mode at the same time.Virtualization improvements (bhyve, virtio); USB upgrades; use clang and LLVM by default; capsicum; pkgng; remove BIND; add LDNS and Unbound to base system; update ipfilter to 5.1.2; add support for Raspberry Pi, IEEE 802.11s, and FUSE; ZFS on root filesystem; replaced GNU tools with BSD-licensed versions The timeline shows that the span of a single release generation of Free BSD lasts around 5 years.Free BSD is constantly evolving; the team is adding new features and patching security vulnerabilities.
