Linux Updates

MidnightBSD 1.0 for amd64 and i386. Over the years, many ambitious goals were set for our 1.0 release. As it approached, it was clear we wouldn’t be able to accomplish all of them. This release is more of a natural progression rather than a groundbreaking event. It includes many updates to the base system, improvements to the package manager, an updated compiler, and tools.

Removal of features

The single largest removal of functionality was the sensors framework. We found that there were some locking issues that couldn’t easily be addressed without some major work. It may reappear in a new form in the future. That said, many of the features provided by the framework are still available.

Sudo was removed from the base system and replaced with doas(1) from OpenBSD. You can still install sudo from 
mports.
