+      <p><tt>bhyve</tt> is a hypervisor that runs on the FreeBSD/amd64
+	platform.  At present, it runs FreeBSD (8.x or later), Linux
+	i386/x64, OpenBSD i386/amd64, and NetBSD/amd64 guests.
+	Current development is focused on enabling additional guest
+	operating systems, and implementing features found in other
+	hypervisors.</p>
+
+      <p>A significant amount of progress has been made since the last
+	status report.  Most importantly, all of this work has been
+	MFCed to the 10-STABLE branch and will be included in the 10.1
+	release.</p>
+
+      <p>Support for AMD processors is being developed in the
+	<tt>bhyve_svm</tt> SVN project branch.  The branch is almost
+	at feature-parity with mainline Intel VT-x support, and will
+	be committed into -CURRENT in the near future.</p>
+
+      <p>New features added this quarter:</p>
+
+      <ul>
+	<li>Guest support for recent Linux i386/x64, OpenBSD
+	  i386/amd64, and NetBSD amd64.</li>
+
+	<li>Force guest reset and poweroff with <tt>bhyvectl</tt></li>
+
+	<li>Allow the SMBIOS UUID to be set from the command line</li>
+
+	<li>PCI MMIO extended config space access</li>
+
+	<li>Improved AHCI error handling, legacy interrupt mode</li>
+
+	<li>Additional instruction emulation required by a number of
+	  guests</li>
+
+	<li>Legacy x86 task switching to support double-faults in
+	  FreeBSD/i386</li>
+
+	<li>Legacy PCI interrupts, operation without an APIC (OpenBSD
+	  install)</li>
+
+	<li>Guest memory not included by default in core dumps</li>
+
+	<li>Allow guest vCPUs to be pinned to individual host
+	  CPUs</li>
+
+	<li>Virtio RNG device emulation</li>
+
+	<li>Chapter about <tt>bhyve</tt> added to FreeBSD
+	  Handbook</li>
+      </ul>
