Yes we life and that's good :-).

  - Fix build error when compiling in debug mode on FreeBSD HEAD
  - SemEvent?-r0drv/FreeBSD: Don't use tvtohz for an infinite timeout. 
  - Some FreeBSD relate typos
  - Enable shared OpenGL service. Completely untested due to lack of
    appropriate hardware but it compiles at least 
  - Add support for shared clipboards. Requires libXt
  - FreeBSD: Implement preemption API for guest SMP and enable
    it (slightly tested). Add neccessary RTMP* methods in userspace
    for the frontends to detect the number of CPUs
  - Runtime/semevent-r0drv-freebsd: Use a sleeping mutex
    instead of a spinlock to fix the problems users are seeing
    (assertions with debugging enabled) while still being able
    to run on 100Hz hosts. No problems detected so far and Solaris
    doesn't use a spin mutex in this code too so it shouldn't do
    any harm (keeping fingers crossed)space for the frontends to
    detect the number of CPUs
  - Add support for curl
  - Add VBoxSharedClipboard

Ports Changes;
  - Force guestadditions version to 2.2.4
  - Removed Qt3 include replacements (already upstream)
  - Removed cosmetic X11 include path patch

Please make SURE, your world and kernel is in sync and you've read
the pkg-messages. Also please unload the kernel module before
you update the port ;-).

Many thx to all Vbox Devs, All supporters, my nice team! :-)


 Happy Testing!
