DragonFly BSD 4.8

   
NewsDragonFly BSD version 4.8 brings EFI boot support in the installer, further speed improvements in the kernel, a new NVMe driver, a new eMMC driver, and Intel video driver updates. Version 4.8.0 released 27 March 2017.

  • EFI support - The installer can now create an EFI or legacy installation. Numerous adjustments have been made to userland utilities and the kernel to support EFI as a mainstream boot environment. The /boot filesystem may now be placed either in its own GPT slice, or in a DragonFly disklabel inside a GPT slice.
  • eMMC booting - This kernel release includes support for eMMC storage as the boot device.
  • brand new SMP-friendly, high-performance NVMe SSD driver (PCIe SSD storage).
  • Improved graphics support - The i915 driver has been updated to match the version found with the Linux 4.6 kernel. Broadwell and Skylake processor users will see improvements.
