DragonFlyBSD 5.4 is introducing many improvements and new features as the latest six month operating system update for this long ago fork from FreeBSD. There is a lot of work in the Intel/AMD CPU space this release as well as other new hardware support, maturing of their homegrown HAMMER2 file-system, and more.

Available for testing this weekend is DragonFlyBSD 5.4-RC1.

Look for the official DragonFlyBSD 5.4.0 release in the days ahead. Especially with FreeBSD 12.0 also coming out in December, stay tuned for some fresh BSD benchmarks on Phoronix.
