MidnightBSD

MidnightBSD

MidnightBSD è un sistema operativo che deriva da FreeBSD (in origine è stato un fork di FreeBSD 6.1 beta). L’obiettivo principale del progetto è di creare un sistema desktop semplice da usare.

Versione 1.0

Questa versione contiene (in Inglese):

I’m happy to announce the availability of MidnightBSD 1.0 for amd64 and i386. Over the years, many ambitious goals were set for our 1.0 release. As it approached, it was clear we wouldn’t be able to accomplish all of them. This release is more of a natural progression rather than a groundbreaking event. It includes many updates to the base system, improvements to the package manager, an updated compiler, and tools.

Of particular note, you can now boot off of ZFS and use NVME SSDs and some AMD Radeon graphics cards support acceleration. AMD Ryzen support has greatly improved in this release. We also have added bhyve from FreeBSD.

Removal of features

The single largest removal of functionality was the sensors framework. We found that there were some locking issues that couldn’t easily be addressed without some major work. It may reappear in a new form in the future. That said, many of the features provided by the framework are still available.

Sudo was removed from the base system and replaced with doas(1) from OpenBSD. You can still install sudo from mports.

Lindev was removed as a device as /dev/full has replaced it.

3rd party software

Many software packages were updated for this release in the base system.

Hardware

Ryzen support was added including a fix for moving the shared page down by one to prevent hanging as well as new chipset support for AMD B350, X370, and X399 chipsets.

New hardware features include support for Intel 8th generation chipsets, Corsair K70 LUX keyboards, several wifi devices such as Realtek USB 802.11n devices.
