Changes relative to previous version
  • features ZFS v5000 support, known as 'feature flags'.
  • features ZFS LZ4-compression, which is very fast and offers good compression ratios; a true breakthrough in compression!
  • updated system configuration (loader and rc configuration)
  • updated boot sector (/boot/pmbr) for ZFS v5000 support
  • X-server is available as KMS-only release and has experimental Gallium3D-support enabled


Caution: fewer services available
Be warned that this experimental system image does not support all services offered by the stable 9.2-001 system version. In particular, the following services are missing:
  • X-DirectConnect
  • X-Handbrake
  • X-Virtualbox (the regular 'Virtualbox' without graphical client is available, however)
  • X-XBMC
  • jabber
  • nagios
  • virtualbox-legacy (the regular 'Virtualbox' service is available; version 4.2.20)


Recommendation
Experimental release, update not recommended.
