The FreeBSD project has published a Quarterly Status Report which outlines work being done on FreeBSD over the past three months. Some of the highlights includes updated video drivers, encrypted NFS connections, and improvements to the Linux compatibility layer. Efforts have also been made to allow storage to be forcibly unmounted when a device is no longer accessible. "Commit -r361491 on May 25, 2020 enables a UFS file system to do a forcible unmount when the underlying media fails or becomes inaccessible. For example when a USB flash memory card hosting a UFS file system is unplugged. The rest of this report describes in more detail how forcible unmounts are done. Suprisingly, less than 500 lines of file system code were added or changed."
