DragonFly 3.0 is out!

See the release page for details.  This release took longer than normal because of a crazy bug hunt, but the payoff is that this version performs better than ever.

Note: The x86_64 GUI ISO image had a problem due to file size (over 2G); redownload if you’ve had trouble booting it.

    Excited to try out the improvements. Especially multiproc and hammer support. I saw TRIM support, any other caching improvements we should know about?

  10. Justin says:

    TRIM is the only disk-specific thing I remember. Disk operations should be better overall because of the removal of the lock, though, and if it’s HAMMER.

    Out of curiosity, did someone contact AMD engineering with the cpu bug?

  12. Dean – yes. Matt Dillon passed it to someone at AMD, as far as I know. There hasn’t been anything directly communicated back that I’ve heard of, but then again the only result may be an errata notice.

    Did we need a code change for GUI ISO/img to work? Saw something on our irc channel about libstand fix, but nothing has been committed.

    Re bug fix for GUI ISO: a fix was comitted today by matt, seems like it is this one, thanks.
