DragonFly BSD

DragonFly BSD

DragonFly è un sistema operativo designato per essere la logica continuazione sulla serie FreeBSD-4.x OS. DragonFly è un fork per dare a BSD l’oppurtunità di crescere in una nuova e diversa direzione rispetto alla serie FreeBSD-5.

Versione 5.8.0

Questa versione contiene(in Inglese):

DragonFly version 5.8 brings a new dsynth utility for building your own binary dports packages, plus significant support work to speed up that build – up to and including the entire collection. Additional progress has been made on GPU and signal support.

The details of all commits between the 5.6 and 5.8 branches are available in the associated commit messages for 5.8.0rc1 and 5.8.0. Also see /usr/src/UPDATING for specific file changes in PAM.

Big-ticket items

  • dsynth(1) written and added to base, making it more convenient for users to build their own binary repos for DPorts(7). dsynth is used to build some or all of the DPorts collection, over 25000 third-party packages. It’s also working as an informal performance measure, with many of the changes in this release to speed up DragonFly when building multiple dependent packages.
  • Many ports these days seem to assume a greater degree of signal safety for libc function, particularly for malloc(). We have implemented a low-overhead signal masking feature that now allows us to make malloc*() and other related functions signal-safe.
  • A ton of bug fixes, stability work, and usability work has gone into this release. Many niggling little annoyances, such as Chrome/Chromium stuttering when system memory is low, have been fixed.
  • DRM (GPU) support continues to improve slowly but steadily.
  • Significantly improved paging algorithms reduces or eliminates UI/browser glitches in low-memory situations.
