FreeBSD 9.0 released
Following several delays, the FreeBSD Project has announced the availability of version 9.0 of its open source FreeBSD operating system. The first stable 9.x branch release is a major update that includes a new FreeBSD installer system and a number of infrastructure enhancements.
The FreeBSD developers have dedicated the 9.0 release to the memory of the late Dennis M. Ritchie, the American computer scientist who created the C programming language and was one of the founding fathers of the UNIX operating system. Ritchie passed away in October 2011.
