freebsd_codeIn this post I am linking to a some interesting updates, additions or changes that were made last week in the FreeBSD code or in the source code of the following FreeBSD-based flavours: PC-BSDFreeNASGhostBSDm0n0wall or pfSense.

If I have missed out any updates that you are excited about, please share with us all in the comments below.

Some device controller detection updates

FreeNAS

Many of the changes and updates are around user creation, login and authentication

New user model implemented, with changes to login and authentication

No more automatic logins; password now required

Ask for new password on login screen for the first time

Add the ability to manage sudo users and groups from GUI

Reset root password for security reasons. root is the new login for the WebGUI (as opposed to admin) and will be reset in the first login.

Updates to kernel modules (jails)

 

PC-BSD

Themes and wallpapers updated for 10.0, which will be called Joule

800x600

9.x first-boot movie removed
