FreeBSD 11.0 Gets One Last Release Candidate Build, Final Version Is Coming Soon

On September 12, 2016, we were expecting to see the announcement for the final release of FreeBSD 11.0, but it didn’t happen. Why? Most probably because of some last minute issues that proved to be a show stopper for the end user. Therefore, we’re now getting yet another Release Candidate development milestone to test and report bugs. As for the changes included in FreeBSD 11.0 RC3, we can mention fixes for boot issues that affect PowerPC (PPC) systems, as well as booting from large disk drivers, a recent update to the libarchive library, along with the latest version of the cron utility. Moreover, there’s a fix for an issue with ipfw’s “set enable/disable” command.
