MidnightBSD 2.1 debuted this week as the latest version of one of the few desktop-focused BSD open-source operating system projects.

MidnightBSD 2.1 updates to the (somewhat out of date still) LLVM 10.0.1 compiler stack, moves to mport 2.1.4 for a newer version of its package manager, and has a number of other bug fixes and security updates. The mport package manager update in particular should address a number of problems previously plaguing MidnightBSD users.

MidnightBSD 2.1 also has a number of hardware updates including adding the NetFPGA SUME 4x10Gb Ethernet driver, updated Intel E1000 network driver, BCM54618SE PHY support, NVMe bug fixes, and other updates.
