The developers and contributors of FreeBSD have released their status report for Q2 2017 (April-June 2017). Some of the reports are 64-bit Inode Numbers, Ceph on FreeBSD, Coda revival, FreeBSD on Marvell Armada38x, TensorFlow, FRRouting, and many many more. Check out their page below for the full report.

FreeBSD continues to defy the rumors of its demise.

Much of the development work done this quarter was not particularly visible, especially the effort needed to ensure the upcoming 11.1 release has as few regressions as possible. Planning is also well under way for the 10.4 maintenance release which will quickly follow it.

Further work focused on moving the arm architectures’ support closer to tier-1 status and improving documentation. In addition, large changes were made to the src and ports trees.

These projects and others are further detailed below.
