You Can Now Download The New Final Releases of FreeBSD 11.0


It was a sad thing for the BSD fans when the FreeBSD 11.0 final release wasn’t available on September 12, 2016, as expected – it was most likely due to a few issues. Not too long after the FreeBSD development team instead released a different Release Candidate to look for the bugs.

Well, the official announcement of FreeBSD has come through and the version 11.0 release has been scheduled to arrive on the 28th of September, 2016. The Release builds started on the 22nd of September, 2016 and since then, mirrors have started to appear on FTP.

If you are interested in checking out any of these FreeBSD 11.0 Final Release ISOs feel free to visit this link and download any of the builds with respect to the different architecture options available.

The FreeBSD 11.0 Release Notes weren’t initially available at first with only a list of informal changes which were considered important and interesting enough for the users to knnow about, but now you can get the full list of changes and improvements from their wiki page. You can still head over to the FreeBSD website to see . In the list, you will find information on various architecture changes, networking improvements, new hardware support, better kernel support etc.

Mind you, these mirrors might not work if you try running a freebsd-update command to upgrade your system.
