Default FreeBSD 7.3-RELEASE Available


The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the availability
of FreeBSD 7.3-RELEASE. This is the fourth release from the 7-STABLE branch
which improves on the functionality of FreeBSD 7.2 and introduces a few
new features. There will be one more release from this branch to allow
future improvements to be made available in the 7-STABLE branch but at this
point most developers are focused on 8-STABLE.

Some of the highlights:

- ZFS updated to version 13
- new boot loader gptzfsboot supports GPT and ZFS
- hwpmc(4) enhancements including support for core2/i7 processor
and pmcannotate(8)
- new mfiutil and mptutil tools for widely used RAID controllers
- NULL pointer vulnerability mitigation
- bind updated to 9.4-ESV
- Gnome updated to 2.28.2
- KDE updated to 4.3.5
- Perl updated to 5.10
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
