Thread: FreeBSD 4.5 Out

    FreeBSD 4.5 Out

    If you like FreeBSD they now have 4.5 out on ftp. They have (as of now) all CD's except the installer CD (but the mini-installer CD is up).

    ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/i386/ISO-IMAGES/4.5

    Re: FreeBSD 4.5 Out

    One of my question was asked in the JKH interview btw! T'was really cool. Here's the log of my question:

    [23:37] <SolarfluX> _jkh: from 'TheVince': I would like to know how many people work full-time on the FreeBSD project.
    Also, I read recently that you were considering improving the startup scripts
    by following a paper from the NetBSD project. What other things have NetBSD
    and OpenBSD done that influenced you to implement them as well?
    [23:38] <_jkh> it's hard to give a real number for "full time"

    [23:38] <_jkh> but I would estimate perhaps 20 on average
    [23:38] <_jkh> and at least a couple of hundred unique contributions
    each month
    [23:39] <_jkh> and we take all kinds of stuff from NetBSD and
    OpenBSD
    [23:39] <_jkh> that's what open source is about.
    [23:39] <_jkh> I think the NetBSD startup stuff, for example,
    is pretty cool
    [23:39] <_jkh> we're just trying to find enough bodies to finish
    that
    [23:39] <_jkh> (the merge)
    [23:39] <_jkh> I'm sure the NetBSD folks would like over 6000
    ports in their ports collection too
    [23:39] <_jkh> but they have the same problem.
    [23:40] <_jkh> so we all share as much code as we have time to
    integrate
    [23:40] <_jkh> next q.
