FreeBSD 10.3-BETA3 Released

The FreeBSD team announced release of FreeBSD 10.3-BETA3, development release of upcoming stable build of FreeBSD 10.x series of BSD distributions. This release comes two weeks after release of previous development release, FreeBSD 10.3-BETA 2.

As usual FreeBSD 10.3-BETA 3 is also made available for a wide range of platforms including amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerprc64, spac64 and also different arm platforms.

As per release announcement, following are changes made in FreeBSD after previous development release, FreeBSD 10.3 BETA2.
  • The em(4) and igb(4) drivers have been updated to version 7.6.1 and 2.5.3 respectively.  Among others, this brought support for i219/i219(2)/ i219(3) hardware found with Skylake generation and newer chipsets as well as an IPv6 workaround for a silicon erratum of 1G server products driven by igb(4).  Additionally, the DMA and TSO segment handling of these two drivers has been fixed and cleaned up. The firmware for qlxgbe(4) has been updated to version 5.4.56, bringing the driver to version 3.10.26.

  • The filemon(4) device received several corrections and improvements.
  • It is now possible again to use truss(1) with Linux/i386 binaries.
