FreeBSD 12.4-RELEASE available


If you’re on the 12.x branch, get it while it’s hot! From the release announcement page:

The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the availability of FreeBSD 12.4-RELEASE. This is the fifth release of the stable/12 branch.

For a complete list of new features and known problems, please see the online release notes and errata list.

Of note to me is that if_epair(4) can now use multiple threads, which should help in jailed environments.

Thanks to the release engineering team :).
