Creating a bootable USB key using a Un*x-like system:

    The command would likely be, under TrueOS/PCBSD:
        dd if=YourTrueOS.img of=/dev/da0 bs=1m 

where da0 is the device and number.  You can find the correct device number
    by checking dmesg(8) when inserting the media.

freebsd

The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the availability of FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE.

DragonFly BSD 4.4.1 – Released 07 Dec 2015 – Only for 64 bit

DragonFlyBSD

Justin Sherrill has announced the release of DragonFly BSD, the latest stable release from the BSD-derived operating system that features the Hammer file system, virtual kernels and other unique characteristics. This first point release in the stable 4.4 series is provided due to the late inclusion of an important OpenSSL security update: “DragonFly BSD 4.4 has been tagged and built. DragonFly version 4.4 brings further updates to accelerated video for both i915 and Radeon users, a new locale system, and a new default linker. Significant behind-the-scenes work has also been done, with symbol versioning, Hammer1 improvements, and other changes. Version 4.4.1 was the first release due to the late inclusion of OpenSSL update 1.0.1q. … If you have an existing 4.2.x system and are running a generic kernel, the normal upgrade process will work. Change your local /usr/src to 4.4.

DragonFly BSD 4.2.0 – The new release is here

DragonFlyBSD

The DragonFly BSD team has announced the launch of DragonFly BSD 4.2.0. The new release includes a number of important new features and upgrades. DragonFly BSD 4.2.0 includes GNU’s GCC 5 compiler as the default system compiler, offers improved graphics support and Sendmail has been replaced by a home-grown, minimal mail transfer agent. “Sendmail has been replaced by the home-grown DragonFly Mail Agent (DMA) in the base system. DMA is not a full-featured MTA (Mail Transfer Agent), it only accepts mails from local MUA (Mail User Agents) and delivers them immediately, either locally or remotely. DMA doesn’t listen to network connections on port 25. People who still need a full-featured MTA must install it from dports. OpenSMTPD, Postfix and Sendmail itself are available as binary packages.” DragonFly BSD’s audio stack and packet filter have been updated with code ported in from FreeBSD’s development branch.
