FreeBSD Advances For ARM, Bhyve, Clang
Phoronix: FreeBSD Advances For ARM, Bhyve, Clang
For those curious about the state of FreeBSD, the FreeBSD Q1'2014 quarterly status report has been issued...
Total Security Fail
Finally, ASLR support in 2014
20Fucking14. Wonder how many simple exploits have occurred on production servers.

Probably none. ASLR isn't really a big deal. It wouldn't have saved you from Heartbleed.

Apple derived iOS from OS X, which was derived from NextStep, which was derived from FreeBSD?
Now BSD have to implement 64-bit ARM support themselves?
How can they port something from Linux if they want everything to be BSD-licensed and Linux is GPL?
I read they're updating the so called "linuxator" from the current fedora 10 base installation. This was in attempt to try make the linux version of steam work. I wonder how well, if possible, freebsd would be able to run linux games?
Isn't sony using one of the BSD kernel forks for their playstation 4?

Apple released their ARM64 documentation which was picked up by the LLVM community and will be amalgamated with their own AArch64 implementation so on the compiler front it will be covered for the FreeBSD guys. <--- This was actually covered by Phoronix.
