The latest BSD operating system now supporting the Raspberry Pi 2 is NetBSD.

Raspberry Pi 2's operating system coverage ranges from Windows 10 to numerous Linux distributions to BSDs to RISC-OS on the RPi2. The latest BSD to now enable this new low-cost, ARM development board is NetBSD.

The NetBSD developers have committed Raspberry Pi 2 support including all the original functionality of the Raspberry Pi. This support was just added per this NetBSD blog post and details can be found via the NetBSD Wiki.

The Raspberry Pi 2 sports a quad-core 900MHz Cortex-A7 processor, 1GB of LPDDR2 SDSRAM, and similar graphics capabilities to the original Raspberry Pi. There are Raspberry Pi 2 Linux benchmarks for those interested.
