+      <p>bhyve is a Type-1 hypervisor that runs on the &os; platform.
+	It currently only runs &os; (9.x or later) and Linux guests,
+	current development efforts aim at widening support for other
+	x86 64-bit operating systems.  After a great deal of work by all
+	involved, bhyve was shipped as part of &os; 10.0-RELEASE.
+	Increased interest in bhyve and the first usable versions have
+	provided great feedback and many bug reports.</p>
+
+      <p>A number of important improvements have been made to bhyve this
+	quarter:</p>
+
+      <ul>
+	<li>Optionally ignore accesses to unimplemented MSRs</li>
+
+	<li>Support soft power-off via the ACPI S5 state for bhyve
+	  guests</li>
+
+	<li>Graceful shutdown via ACPI on SIGTERM</li>
+
+	<li>Fix issue with virtio-blk devices on Linux guests with more
+	  than 4GB of ram</li>
+
+	<li>Increase the block-layer backend maximum requests to match
+	  AHCI command queue depth</li>
+
+	<li>Add SMBIOS support</li>
+
+	<li>Improve support for nmdm, opening the tty non-blocking</li>
+
+	<li>Add HPET device emulation</li>
+
+	<li>Implement the <q>Virtual Interrupt Delivery</q> and
+	  <q>Posted Interrupt Processing</q> VT-x features on newer
+	  Intel CPUs</li>
+
+	<li>Add support for booting &os;/i386 guests</li>
+
+	<li>Add virtualized XSAVE support for features like AVX</li>
+
+	<li>Add Support for booting from ZFS with bhyveload</li>
