FreeBSD 13.1-RELEASE available

Software

Congratulations and a big thank you to the release engineering team. FreeBSD 13.1-RELEASE includes some newer Wi-Fi driver support (awesome!), OpenZFS has been updated to 2.1.4, and plenty more.

The release is dedicated to American software engineer Bill Jolitz, who left us in March this year:

The FreeBSD Project dedicates the FreeBSD 13.1-RELEASE to the memory of Bill Jolitz, co-creator of 386BSD, which formed the basis of FreeBSD 1.0. We stand on the shoulders of giants.

I poured out one for him earlier this year, but I might do again while upgrading my homelab this weekend. ♡

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
