The second beta of FreeBSD 9.0 has finally arrived after just under a month of delays from the developer team. For future updates, the development team has announced a revamp of their schedule in accordance to the current state of updates. There were a handful of significant improvements that came with the first beta such as USB 3.0, TCP/IP, Clang/LLVM based compilation system, and support for more than thirty two CPUs.
In addition to commenting on the improvements from the FreeBSD 9.0 Beta 1, the development team has urged testers to allocate more testing time towards the new installer system, asking for more frequent new installs. As a result, the updates to beta 2 are not made available to the public yet. The FreeBSD 9.0 beta 2 can be found at their websites download section. Those running a FreeBSD dedicated server should look into the second beta for the new additions.
