Continuing with the “2011? series, let’s have a look today at the development planned for Debian GNU/kFreeBSD. Earlier posts can be found here: PC-BSDpfSenseHeX LiveMaheshaBSD, GhostBSD.

Robert Millan from the Debian GNU/kFreeBSD project emailed an update for his project.

Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is a port that consists of GNU userland using the GNU C library on top of FreeBSD’s kernel, coupled with the regular Debian package set.

Robert writes:

“First and foremost, 2011 will be the year of the first release of Debian GNU/kFreeBSD. It won’t be a stable release, but a “technology preview”. Nevertheless it is quite usable.

This is one of the most significant milestones the project has reached since its inception.”

Thanks for the update Robert. Wishing you and the other devs all the best for 2011.
