The "technology preview" label indicated, among other things, that it had a number of limitations when compared with what users would expect: missing features, incomplete functionality, etc.

But it has seen many noteworthy improvements since then. Here are some that I would like to mention:

Graphical installer support in D-I.
Userland support for FreeBSD Jails has been imported.
Userland support for encrypting disk partitions (geli) has been imported.
FUSE support is now provided by fuse4bsd.
After NFS daemons and utilities has been packaged, it is finally possible to mount NFS file systems.
