The fourth ALPHA build of the 10.0-RELEASE release cycle is now available
on the FTP servers for the amd64, i386, ia64, powerpc, powerpc64 and
sparc64 architectures.

Note:  Due to build issues within the head/ branch, ALPHA3 ISO builds
were skipped.

The 10.0-ALPHA4 builds correlate to svn revision r255933 of the head/

The image checksums follow at the end of this email.

ISO images and, for architectures that support it, the memory stick images
are available here:

(or any of the FreeBSD mirror sites).

If you notice problems you can report them through the normal GNATS PR
system or here on the -current mailing list.

If you would like to use SVN to do a source based update of an existing
system, use the "head/" branch.

Please be aware that cvsup and CVS are not supported methods of updating
the src/ tree.

Important note to freebsd-update(8) users: freebsd-update(8) is not
a supported upgrade path for the 10.0-ALPHA builds.

Changes between -ALPHA2 and -ALPHA4 include:

    - Update OFED to Linux 3.7 and update Mellanox drivers.
    - Add driver for the PAPR VSCSI virtual SCSI controller.
    - Disable ISC BIND build by default, and enable LDNS/unbound.
    - Correct a NULL pointer deference in nslookup and nsupdate.
    - Update the CAM version to 18.  This includes compatibility shims
      to the previous version.
    - Introduce a kern.geom.notaste sysctl that can be used to
      temporarily disable GEOM tasting to avoid the "bouncing GEOM"
      problem where, when you shut down the consumer of a provider which
      can be viewed in multiple ways, GEOM will immediately taste that
      provider's alter ego and reattach the consumer.
    - Update dialog to 1.2-20130923.
    - Import a new libcxxrt.
    - Remove the armv6eb architecture.
    - Update OpenSSH to 6.3p1.
    - Merge Xen PVHVM support into the GENERIC kernel config for both
      amd64 and i386.
    - Substantial rewrite of bxe(4) to add support for the BCM57712 and
      BCM578XX controllers.
    - Connect LLDB to the build (disabled by default).
    - Update arcmsr(4) driver to
    - Implement epoll support in Linuxulator.
    - Add vmx(4) to i386 and amd64 GENERIC.
