Second FreeBSD 11.0 Release Candidate Restores Support for ‘nat global’ in IPFW

The development of FreeBSD 11.0 continues at a fast pace, and it looks like some improvements have been made since last week’s first Release Candidate build, such as the re-implementation of support for ‘nat global’ in IPFW, FreeBSD’s IPv6 and IPv4 stateful firewall. The list of changes continues with improved detection of network bridges that aren’t HotPlug capable, additional fixes to the LLVM/Clang compiler support, more build enhancements, as well as disablement of L2 caching for the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) over IPv6 protocol.
