the support for that feature was added, and a '*' means that the behavior
was changed.

 - sparc support

   support, parts of libdns_sd
 - Sun Studio and lint build support
 - getpwent_r(3c), fgetpwent_r(3c), which are non-standard and were different
   from other OSes
 - getpw(3c)

   Applications using the draft versions have to be modified; users of the
   standard versions are unaffected.
    - readdir_r
    - getpwuid_r
    - getpwnam_r
 - c_synonyms.so
 - drop support for Riyadh87, Riyadh88, and Riyadh89 timezones
 - routeadm(1m), svc:/network/routing/legacy-routing,
   svc:/network/ipv[46]-forwarding removed. use ipadm to manage forwarding and
   smf to manage the routing-related daemons.

 - troff(1), nroff(1), addbib(1), checknr(1), deroff(1), diffmk(1), eqn(1),
   indxbib(1), lookbib(1), refer(1), roffbib(1), soelim(1), tbl(1), ul(1),
   vgrind(1), /usr/bin/makedev /usr/bin/ta removed -- made obsolete by mandoc
 - pre-XPG5 behavior: ungetwc(3c), putwchar(3c), putwc(3c), fputwc(3c),
   fputws(3c), fgetwc(3c), getwc(3c), getwchar(3c), fgetws(3c)
 - C89 behavior: fprintf(3c), fscanf(3c), fwprintf(3c), fwscanf(3c),
   printf(3c), scanf(3c), snprintf(3c), sprintf(3c), sscanf(3c),
   swprintf(3c), swscanf(3c), vfprintf(3c), vfscanf(3c), vfwprintf(3c),
   vfwscanf(3c), vprintf(3c), vscanf(3c), vsnprintf(3c), vsprintf(3c),
   vsscanf(3c), vswprintf(3c), vswscanf(3c), vwprintf(3c), vwscanf(3c),
   wprintf(3c), wscanf(3c)

 + LibreSSL (libcrypto, libssl, libtls, openssl(1), nc(1)) added
 + cpio-formatted boot archives
 * man(1) is mandoc. mandoc.db support added, eliminating the need for
   manpage symlinks.
 * socket interfaces are now in libc. libsocket, libxnet and libnsl remain as
   filter libraries.
 * socket implementation was modified to be more reasonable by default, and it
   is no longer possible to choose an alternate socket implementation.
   msg_accrights was removed and msg_control members are now always visible in
   struct msghdr.
   Documentation was updated and moved to section 2: accept(2), bind(2),
   connect(2), getpeername(2), getsockname(2), getsockopt(2), listen(2),
   recv(2), send(2), shutdown(2), socket(2), socketpair(2), and the new
   sockatmark(2) and CMSG_DATA(3)
 * make(1) is bmake(1) instead of dmake(1)
 * sed(1) replaced with a version imported from FreeBSD
 * locale data has been updated to CLDR v28; tools to generate it were imported
   from FreeBSD. This fixes many character classification errors.
 * install(1m) was replaced by install(1) from OpenBSD.
 * all process security flags are on by default
 * putwchar(3c), putwc(3c), fputwc(3c), and fputws(3c) have only XPG5 behavior
 * man pages from section 1M have been moved to section 8; third party code
   (libncurses, namely) is not affected

Unleashed 1.2 has just been released; noticeable the LibreSSL, OpenSSH and GCC updates, and the deprecation of Solaris BSM audit subsystem (which can still be found inside FreeBSD base), as well as the libxnet and libsocket filter libraries
