The FreeBSD project has released its latest Quarterly Status Report. The report covers developments and progress made in the FreeBSD community during the past three months. Some of the key items in the report mention upgraded ZFS features, progress made toward linking FreeBSD using lld (the LLVM linker) and making FreeBSD run on 64-bit ARM processors. "lld is the linker in the LLVM family of projects. It is a high-performance linker that supports the ELF, COFF, and Mach-O object formats. Where possible, lld maintains command-line and functional compatibility with the existing GNU BFD ld and gold linkers. However, the authors of lld are not constrained by strict compatibility where it would hamper performance or desired functionality." Additional information can be found in the report.
