The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team has announced the release of FreeBSD 4.11. This latest release of the FreeBSD Legacy development branch includes conservative updates to a number of software programs in the base system, dealt with known security issues, and has many bugfixes.

It includes fixes for the Linux binary compatibility kernel memory issue, CVS exploits, fetch(1) issue, and procfs (and linprocfs) issues.

It now supports the IBM/Adaptec ServeRAID controller, Cronyx Tau-PCI synchronous serial adapters, ASIX Electronics AX88172 USB 2.0 Ethernet chipset, Intel 82597EX PCI Gigabit Ethernet, and some Intel 8255A programmable peripheral interface (PPI) chip support.
