BSD --
If all goes well FreeBSD 10.1 will be officially released before month's end but available this weekend is the first release candidate.

FreeBSD 10.1 offers many new features and improvements across the board affecting the vast majority of users. For those wishing to test out this latest development build, Glen Barber announced FreeBSD 10.1 RC1 on Saturday night.

The 10.1 RC1 release is available for download per the mailing list announcement. Some of the changes over the 10.1-BETA3 release include a bug fix for an issue that caused all processes to appear to have the parent PID of 1, updates to the bsdinstall and bsdconfig utilities, and a new Hyper-V Key-Value Pair (KVP) driver was added for x86/x86_64.

Planned for the next two weeks are more release candidates while if all goes well the official FreeBSD 10.1 announcement will take place on 29 October.
