FreeBSD 13.0 update Release Download. The FreeBSD project has announced the availability of FreeBSD 13.0. After an extended development cycle, FreeBSD 13.0 has arrived with a number of key improvements and features, in particular ARM64 is now a Tier 1 architecture, meaning it will receive additional support: “Removed the obsolete version of the GNU debugger that was installed to /usr/libexec for use by crashinfo(8). Detailed kernel crash information can be obtained by installing modern GDB from ports or packages. Removed the obsolete binutils 2.17 and gcc(1) 4.2.1 from the tree. All supported architectures now use the LLVM/clang toolchain. The BSD version of grep(1) is now installed by default. The obsolete GNU version that was the previous default has been removed. Removed CU-SeeMe support from libalias(3). The qat(4) driver has been added, supporting some of the cryptographic acceleration functions of the Intel QuickAssist (QAT) device. The qat(4) driver supports the QAT devices integrated with Atom C2000 and C3000 and Xeon C620 and D-1500 platforms, and the Intel QAT Adapter 8950. Several deprecated drivers have been removed. Several drivers have been ported to the PowerPC64 architecture. The kernel now supports in-kernel framing and encryption of Transport Layer Security (TLS) data on TCP sockets for TLS versions 1.0 through 1.3.” Further information can be found in the project’s release announcement and in the release notes.
