  From :"Jordan K. Hubbard" <>
  Organization:FreeBSD Project
  It is, as always, my great pleasure to announce the release of FreeBSD
  2.2.8, our latest and final release along the 2.2-stable branch. Those
  folks who are still running 2.1.x and wish to upgrade to 2.2
  technology are definitely encouraged to do so now as the 2.2-stable
  branch has gone into maintainence mode. A number of problems with
  2.2.7 have been fixed and the release notes (appended) should be
  consulted for more information.
  FreeBSD 2.2.8-RELEASE is available on and various FTP
  mirror sites throughout the world. It can also be ordered on CD from
  Walnut Creek CDROM, from where it will be shipping shortly as a 4 CD
  set containing a lot of extra stuff of interest to programmers and
  general users alike.
  IMPORTANT NOTE: All of the profits from the sales of this CD set go to
  support the FreeBSD Project!

                           RELEASE NOTES
                   FreeBSD 2.2.8-RELEASE VERSION
  1. What's new since 2.2.7
  Kernel features:
  o Add support for >8G IDE drives.
  o Add support for 3Com 3c905B ethernet adapters
  o Add support for PCI ThunderLAN-based ethernet adapters (Compaq/Olicom)
  o Significantly improve Linux emulator again.  Things like QuakeII should
    just run out-of-the-box now (given the rest of their requirements).
  o Major changes from -current's pthread implementation merged: This
    file locking based on FILE *, signal fixes, read/write-locks, better
    compliance and better performance.
  o Add a new flexible bandwidth limiter/delay emulator called
    dummynet. See dummynet(4).
  o Add support for bridging on multiple interfaces (10 and 100 Mbit/s).
    See bridge(4).
  o NFS client accelerator added.  See 'nfs_access_cache' in rc.conf(5).
  Userland features:
  o /bin/sh signal and trap handling reworked. Among other things, this
    makes tty-mode emacs work when called from system(2), i.e. by a mail
  o ppp(8) merged from 3.0, adding features like multilink and VPN
    support as well as fixing a number of known bugs.
  Security issues:
  o All open CERT/Bugtraq advisories against 2.2.7 have been dealt with.
  2. Supported Configurations
  FreeBSD currently runs on a wide variety of ISA, VLB, EISA and PCI bus
  based PC's, ranging from 386sx to Pentium class machines (though the
  386sx is not recommended).  Support for generic IDE or ESDI drive
  configurations, various SCSI controller, network and serial cards is
  also provided.
  What follows is a list of all peripherals currently known to work with
  FreeBSD.  Other configurations may also work, we have simply not as yet
  received confirmation of this.
  2.1. Disk Controllers
  WD1003 (any generic MFM/RLL)
  WD1007 (any generic IDE/ESDI)
  Adaptec 1535 ISA SCSI controllers
  Adaptec 154x series ISA SCSI controllers

  Adaptec 274X/284X/2940/3940 (Narrow/Wide/Twin) series ISA/EISA/PCI SCSI
  Adaptec AIC7850 on-board SCSI controllers.
  ** Note: You cannot boot from the SoundBlaster cards as they have no
     on-board BIOS, such being necessary for mapping the boot device into
     system BIOS I/O vectors.  They're perfectly usable for external tapes,
     CDROMs, etc, however.  The same goes for any other AIC-6x60 based card
     without a boot ROM.  Some systems DO have a boot ROM, which is
     indicated by some sort of message when the system is first powered up
     or reset, and in such cases you *will* also be able to boot from them.
     Check your system/board documentation for more details.

  3. Obtaining FreeBSD
  You may obtain FreeBSD in a variety of ways:
  3.1. FTP/Mail
  You can ftp FreeBSD and any or all of its optional packages from
  `' - the official FreeBSD release site.
  For other locations that mirror the FreeBSD software see the file
  MIRROR.SITES.  Please ftp the distribution from the site closest (in
  networking terms) to you.  Additional mirror sites are always welcome!
  Contact for more details if you'd like to 
  become an official mirror site.
  3.2. CDROM
  FreeBSD 3.0-SNAP and 2.2.x-RELEASE CDs may be ordered on CDROM from:
          Walnut Creek CDROM
          4041 Pike Lane, Suite D
          Concord CA  94520
          1-800-786-9907, +1-925-674-0783, +1-925-674-0821 (FAX)
  Or via the Internet from or
  Their current catalog can be obtained via ftp from:

  Cost per -RELEASE CD is $39.95 or $24.95 with a FreeBSD subscription.
  FreeBSD SNAPshot CDs are $39.95 or $14.95 with a FreeBSD-SNAP subscription
  (-RELEASE and -SNAP subscriptions are entirely separate).  With a
  subscription, you will automatically receive updates as they are released.

  your subscription at any time without further obligation.
  Shipping (per order not per disc) is $5 in the US, Canada or Mexico
  and $9.00 overseas.  They accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American
  Express or checks in U.S. Dollars and ship COD within the United
  States.  California residents please add 8.25% sales tax.
  Should you be dissatisfied for any reason, the CD comes with an
  unconditional return policy.
  4. Reporting problems, making suggestions, submitting code.
  Your suggestions, bug reports and contributions of code are always
  valued - please do not hesitate to report any problems you may find
  (preferably with a fix attached, if you can!).
  The preferred method to submit bug reports from a machine with
  Internet mail connectivity is to use the send-pr command or use the CGI
  script at  Bug reports
  will be dutifully filed by our faithful bugfiler program and you can
  be sure that we'll do our best to respond to all reported bugs as soon
  as possible.  Bugs filed in this way are also visible on our WEB site
  in the support section and are therefore valuable both as bug reports
  and as "signposts" for other users concerning potential problems to
  watch out for.
  If, for some reason, you are unable to use the send-pr command to
  submit a bug report, you can try to send it to:
  Note that send-pr itself is a shell script that should be easy to move
  even onto a totally different system.  We much prefer if you could use
  this interface, since it make it easier to keep track of the problem
  reports.  However, before submitting, please try to make sure whether
  the problem might have already been fixed since.
  Otherwise, for any questions or tech support issues, please send mail to:
  Additionally, being a volunteer effort, we are always happy to have
  extra hands willing to help - there are already far more desired
  enhancements than we'll ever be able to manage by ourselves!  To
  contact us on technical matters, or with offers of help, please send
  mail to:
  Please note that these mailing lists can experience *significant*
  amounts of traffic and if you have slow or expensive mail access and
  are only interested in keeping up with significant FreeBSD events, you
  may find it preferable to subscribe instead to:
  All of the mailing lists can be freely joined by anyone wishing
  to do so.  Send mail to and include the keyword
  `help' on a line by itself somewhere in the body of the message.  This
  will give you more information on joining the various lists, accessing
  archives, etc.  There are a number of mailing lists targeted at
  special interest groups not mentioned here, so send mail to majordomo
  and ask about them!
