FreeBSD 10.4-RELEASE Announcement
The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce availability
of FreeBSD 10.4-RELEASE. This is the fifth release of the stable/10
branch, building upon the stability and reliability of 10.3-RELEASE and
introducing new features.
Some of the highlights:
* 10.4-RELEASE is the first FreeBSD release to feature full support for
eMMC storage, including eMMC partitions, TRIM and bus speed modes up
to HS400. Please note, though, that availability of especially the
DDR52, HS200 and HS400 modes requires support in the actual sdhci(4)
front-end as well as by the hardware used. Also note, that the SDHCI
controller part of Intel(R) Apollo Lake chipsets is affected by
several severe silicon bugs. Apparently, it depends on the particular
Apollo Lake platform whether the workarounds in place so far are
sufficient to avoid timeouts on attaching sdhci(4) there.
* Also in case a GPT disk label is used, the fsck_ffs(8) utility now is
able to find alternate superblocks.
* The aesni(4) driver now no longer shares a single FPU context across
multiple sessions in multiple threads, addressing problems seen when
employing aesni(4) for accelerating ipsec(4) …..
