MICROSOFT --
It was back in February that Microsoft open-sourced CoreCLR, the execution engine of the core .NET stack. Besides coming to Linux and other platforms, this MIT-licensed engine has now been ported and is working for FreeBSD.

As of this week the CoreCLR code can now produce a working build on FreeBSD and are setting up FreeBSD as part of their continuous integration infrastructure to ensure the FreeBSD support remains in top condition moving forward.


Details on this feat are mentioned via this GitHub issue report and this milestone comes just one month after they were organizing a FreeBSD port team.
