Maintenance releases are intended to promptly bring bug fixes to users, while preserving overall stability through the avoidance of both major API or feature changes and major codebase re-factoring.

FreeBSD Support

TDE continues to offer support for FreeBSD, although still partial given some of the new issues that have arisen with the latest versions of FreeBSD. The TDE team will try their best to improve support for FreeBSD but progress will probably be slow. Additional developers or contributors willing to help porting the remaining features and applications are always welcome.
