NetBSD 7.1 New Features and Improvements
NetBSD is a free, fast, secure, and highly portable Unix-like Open Source operating system. It is available for a wide range of platforms, from large-scale servers and powerful desktop systems to handheld and embedded devices. NetBSD 7.1 is the first feature update of the NetBSD 7 release branch. It represents a selected subset of fixes deemed important for security or stability reasons, as well as new features and enhancements. NetBSD 7.1 release include support for the Raspberry Pi Zero single-board computer, better compatibility with Linux binaries so you can use various apps and plugins, such as Adobe Flash Player, better Ethernet support for ODROID-C1 SBCs, and the implementation of the vioscsi driver for Google Compute Engine disks. NetBSD 7.1 also comes with initial DRM/KMS support for Nvidia GPUs by using the Nouveau open-source graphics driver, which appears to be disabled by default. To enable it, you will have to uncomment both nouveaufb and nouveau in the kernel config. Wake-on-LAN (WoL) support has been included as well in the NetBSD 7.1 release, along with support for 2.5G and C2000 KX. It also looks like NetBSD now works on 82575 and newer SERDES-based systems.
