4. Open Issues

  • [2019-07-04] An issue which can cause a crash when connecting to a bhyve(4) instance with a VNC client under certain circumstances had been reported. An errata notice is planned post-release.

  • [2019-07-04] An issue booting bhyve(4) virtual machines compiled with clang(1) version 8.0.0 or later had been reported late in the release cycle. An errata notice is planned post-release.

    This issue is believed to only affect OpenBSD virtual machines compiled with clang(1).

  • [2019-07-04] An issue when upgrading from FreeBSD 11.3 to FreeBSD 12.0 (which occurred earlier in time, comparatively), had been reported where the com.delphix:spacemap_v2 zpool(8) feature does not exist on FreeBSD 12.0, will fail to import the ZFS pool.

    At this time, it is advised to defer migrating from FreeBSD 11.3 to FreeBSD 12.x until FreeBSD 12.1 is available.

    Upgrading from earlier FreeBSD 11.x releases to FreeBSD 12.0 are believed to be unaffected.
