Version 3.4 of DragonFly is officially out.

The release ISO/IMG files are all available at the usual mirrors:


The release notes have details on all the changes:


If you are planning to try the new dports system for installing
third-party software, check the DPorts Howto page:


If you have an installed DragonFly 3.2 system and you are looking to
upgrade, these (not directly tested) steps should work, as root:

cd /usr/src
git fetch origin
git branch DragonFly_RELEASE_3_4 origin/DragonFly_RELEASE_3_4
git checkout DragonFly_RELEASE_3_4

... And then go through the normal buildworld/buildkernel process
found in /usr/src/UPDATING.  If you are running a generic kernel, that
can be as simple as

make buildworld && make buildkernel && make installkernel && make
installworld && make upgrade

(and then reboot)

If you encounter problems, please report them at
bugs.dragonflybsd.org.  I get better at testing for each release, but
I also get better at discovering new problems just after release.
