BSD --
One week after the first FreeBSD 10.3 beta, FreeBSD 10.3 Beta 2 is now available with more fixes.

Over the past week were some fixes/improvements around FreeBSD's UEFI support, "The UEFI ZFS loader has been updated to support the latest ZFS Boot Environment (BE) loader menu features" and "The UEFI boot loader received several improvements: /boot/config and /boot.config files now are adhered to, multi device boot support works and command line argument parsing has been added."

FreeBSD 10.3 beta 2 also has an OpenSSH upgrade, TTY changes, random(9) initialization has changed so it's available earlier in the boot process, the ixgbe Intel FreeBSD Networking Group driver code has been updated, and other fixes.

More details on this weekend's release of FreeBSD 10.3 Beta 2 can be found via this mailing list post.
