-------- Original Message --------
Subject: [FreeBSD-Announce] FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE Now Available
Date: Mon, 20 Jan 2014 11:29:53 -0500
From: Glen Barber <gjb@FreeBSD.org>
To: freebsd-announce@FreeBSD.org
CC: FreeBSD Release Engineering Team <re@FreeBSD.org>

The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the availability
of FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE.  This is the first release of the stable/10 branch.

Some of the highlights:

    * GCC is no longer installed by default on architectures where
      clang(1) is the default compiler.

    * Unbound has been imported to the base system as the local caching
      DNS resolver.

    * BIND has been removed from the base system.
    * make(1) has been replaced with bmake(1), obtained from the NetBSD

    * pkg(7) is now the default package management utility.

    * pkg_add(1), pkg_delete(1), and related tools have been removed.

    * Major enhancements in virtualization, including the addition of
      bhyve(8), virtio(4), and native paravirtualized drivers providing
      support for FreeBSD as a guest operating system on Microsoft

    * TRIM support for Solid State Drive has been added to ZFS.

    * Support for the high-performance LZ4 compression algorithm has
      been added to ZFS.

For a complete list of new features and known problems, please see the
online release notes and errata list, available at:

FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE is now available for the amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc,
powerpc64, and sparc64 architectures.

FreeBSD 10.0 can be installed from bootable ISO images or over the
network.  Some architectures also support installing from a USB memory
stick.  The required files can be downloaded via FTP as described in the
section below.  While some of the smaller FTP mirrors may not carry all
architectures, they will all generally contain the more common ones such
as amd64 and i386.

SHA256 and MD5 hashes for the release ISO and memory stick images are
included at the bottom of this message.

The purpose of the images provided as part of the release are as follows:

  dvd1: This contains everything necessary to install the base FreeBSD
	operating system, the documentation, and a small set of pre-built
	packages aimed at getting a graphical workstation up and running.
	It also supports booting into a "livefs" based rescue mode.  This
	should be all you need if you can burn and use DVD-sized media.

  disc1: This contains the base FreeBSD operating system. It also supports
	booting into a "livefs" based rescue mode.  There are no pre-built

  bootonly: This supports booting a machine using the CDROM drive but
	does not contain the support for installing FreeBSD from the
	CD itself.  You would need to perform a network based install
	(e.g. from an FTP server) after booting from the CD.

  memstick: This can be written to an USB memory stick (flash drive) and
	used to do an install on machines capable of booting off USB
	drives.  It also supports booting into a "livefs" based rescue
	mode.  There are no pre-built packages.

As one example of how to use the memstick image, assuming the USB drive
appears as /dev/da0 on your machine something like this should work:

  # dd if=FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img of=/dev/da0 bs=10240 conv=sync

Be careful to make sure you get the target (of=) correct.

FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE can also be purchased on CD-ROM or DVD from several
vendors.  One of the vendors that will be offering FreeBSD 10.0-based
products is:

~   FreeBSD Mall, Inc.        http://www.freebsdmall.com/


FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE may be downloaded via ftp from the following site:


However before trying this site, please check your regional mirror(s)
first by going to:


Any additional mirror sites will be labeled ftp2, ftp3 and so on.

 Other Projects Based on FreeBSD

There are many "third party" Projects based on FreeBSD.  The Projects
range from re-packaging FreeBSD into a more "novice friendly" distribution
to making FreeBSD available on Amazon's EC2 infrastructure.  For more
information about these Third Party Projects see:



Many companies donated equipment, network access, or man-hours to
support the release engineering activities for FreeBSD 10.0 including
The FreeBSD Foundation, Yahoo!, NetApp, Internet Systems Consortium,
ByteMark Hosting, Sentex Communications, New York Internet, Juniper
Networks, NLNet, and iXsystems.
