- A workaround has been implemented to fix serial ports on certain motherboards, in particular the Intel D2500CCE board.
- A bug in bsdgrep(1) that would prevent certain pattern matching has been fixed.
- The bsdconfig(8) utility has been updated to support pkg(8)-format packages.
- Firmware for the cxgbe(4) Chelsio T4 and T5 cards has been updated to version 188.8.131.52.
