DragonFly, a distribution that belongs to the same class of operating systems as other BSD-derived systems and UNIX, is now at version 3.4.1.

DragonFly 3.4.1 is a major release and it comes with an impressive number of changes and improvements.

Highlights of DragonFly BSD 3.4.1:

• An experimental packaging system called dports has been added;
• Various performance improvements under extreme load have been implemented;
• A new default compiler, GCC 4.7, has been added. GCC 4.7 brings OpenMP (parallel programming) support to DragonFly via libgomp, as well as stack smashing protection via libssp;
• More USB devices are now compatible with DragonFly;
• Better MSI/MSI-X support is now available;
• The stability of swapoff has been improved.
