New latest version of FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE is out this. FBSD 10 is the latest stable release of 10 branch. The biggest change in FBSD 10 is removal of long time used pkg_add and its substitute with the newer and more advanced pkg. For BSD users who don't know pkg stiill check out handbook on pkgng
Key highlights of FreeBSD 10 as taken from FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE announcement;
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 Project.
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 Hyper-V.
TRIM support for Solid State Drives has been added to ZFS.
Support for the high-performance LZ4 compression algorithm has been added to ZFS.
There is a big news for Raspberry Pi lovers as from FreeBSD 10 there is an official support for Raspberry Pi
Happy new release. Cheers to testers 🙂

Check this out. Mysqlreport is a small script intended to Make easy-to-read MySQL status reports.It has also a nice manual explaining every variable it returns. Check it out here .From yesterday I feel a little sich just like I guess I’ve catched a flu. I’m still looking for a what kind of laptop to buy.
Everybody says a different thing.
A friend of mine who sells laptop says Gigabyte is a good choice, still I’m uncertain about that.I personally like Thinkpads but unfortunately thinkpads comes with OS installed on them and also I don’t like it that IBM Thinkpads (e.g. nowhere days Lenovo Thinkpads) at least the cheaper ones come with Integrated ATI video.
I’m thinking of a Dell as a possibility but still I’min doubt which one to take … For all those who doesn’t know IBM/Lenovo has three major series of Thinkpads the “r” series “t” series from Terminator :), and the “x” series. x series thinkpads are a way smaller than “r” and “t” series. As I’ve heard from friends and other sources online “t” series are rock solid and had a titanium backing. A good thing about Thinkpads to note is that the batter life of “r” and “z” series is 3.5 h 🙂 What I can afford is to spend no more than 1600 lv. (something like 1200 USD) for a laptop. The Dell models I liked were Inspiron 1520 but unfortunately they come with integrated wifi card which is dell and has no support for Linux/BSD (I need the computer to run FBSD/linux).Ofcourse I can always use NDIS and use the windows driver under linux/BSD but this is not the ideaEND—–
