FreeBSD, Release Engineering, Future Goals
FreeBSD has undergone several significant transformations since the decision was made 5 years ago to pursue fine-grained locking and threading in the kernel. The result is a network and storage stack that runs multi-threaded and takes advantage of multiple CPUs, along with many other kernel services that now run in parallel. There have also been many changes in the development aspects of FreeBSD, including the introduction of Perforce to augment source control, more active Release Engineering participation, and a switch to a more focused release cycle. This presentation will describe the technical and developmental transitions from FreeBSD 4 to FreeBSD 5 and on to FreeBSD 6, the role that the Release Engineering team plays in development, the lessons learned from the FreeBSD 5 development cycle, and what to look forward to in FreeBSD 6 and beyond.
