Note: Problems for which patches exist are marked in red.
Accommodate newer i386/amd64 CPUs with physical address size greater than 36 bit. Fixes major performance hit seen on newer servers where an incorrectly programmed memory region length affects PCI device mappings.
Make dhclient(8) interface_status() assume that a link is up when IFM_AVALID is not set. Allows drivers to get dhcp leases even when they cannot tell what the link state is.
Fix for VU#624931 CVE-2012-2978: nsd(8) denial of service vulnerability from non-standard DNS packet from any host on the internet.
Make the smtpd(8) scheduler less verbose by default.
Further simplify cwm(1) Xinerama init, and re-init on XRR events.
On gio, correctly recognise boards with a 8-bit only ID register, which are not frame buffers.
The 8254 timer does not interrupt on Indy; no longer try it. R4000 and R4400 based Indy may experience the lost clock interrupt processor errata again, until better fix is found.
Drop .sp and .br right after .SH and .SS.; and drop empty .IP so they do not cause additional vertical spacing with mandoc(1).
Let a trailing .Ns macro take effect, even on an input line containing a partial implicit macro. Fixes some mandoc(1) horizontal spacing.
Print messages about ifconfig(8) ieee80211 nodes purged from the node cache if hostap/ibss modes are compiled in and the interface is in debug mode.
Fix handling of mandoc(1) paragraph macros inside lists: when they are trailing the last item, move them outside the list; when they are trailing any other none-compact item, drop them.
mandoc(1) will now never use "\*(Ba" and just use "|". Stops breaking of enclosing font changes.
Put p_prof_ticks and p_prof_addr back in a "copy-on-fork" area, to correct process accounting.
Add recognition of the Huawei Mobile E303 to umsm(4).
Use ipsec(4) flowinfo on pipex to select the ipsec(4) tunnel for sending L2TP packets.
In flush-left mode mandoc(1), when an output line is broken at the position of a literal tab, the tab now indents the following line.
Added IP_IPSECFLOWINFO option to sendmsg(2) and recvmsg(2), so npppd(4) can use this to select the ipsec(4) tunnel for L2TP packets. Fixes Windows (always binding to 1701) and Android clients (negotiating wildcard flows).
Fixed two possible node leaks in ieee80211_input().
Make sure we have a swap partition before trying to read or write hibernate info to it.
mandoc(1) -Tman .sp fixes: keep height argument on the same line (it got printed to the output); for .El .sp, avoid the .sp -1v .PP .sp output sequence.
mandoc(1) -mdoc parser improvements related to vertical spacing: remove .br before paragraph type blocks; treat .Lp as a paragraph like .Pp (so remove .Pp, .Lp, .br before it); do not treat .sp as a paragraph (don't remove anything before it); after .Sh, .Ss, .Pp, and .Lp, remove .Pp, .Lp, .sp, .br, and blank lines; after .sp and .br, remove .br.
Unify cwm(1) max routines, to match client placement and some menu ones when calculating screen dimensions.
Don't panic in hibernate resume if no swap partition exists on the root disk.
Add cu(1) command ~D to drop the DTR line for a second (similar to using ~# for a BREAK). This makes some microcontroller boards reset.
Fixed mandoc(1) vertical spacing for blank lines after .PP, and for .sp after .PP; adjust -Tman SYNOPSIS .Nm indentation using .HP; do not pass font escapes and such through print_word(), to correctly count characters.
In mandoc(1) -Tman .Bl -compact, skip blank line only before first item of first list in a section, not before every item of the first list.
Label node allocation failures as such in netstat(1) -W output.
Changed ipsec.conf(5) configuration format fed to the isakmpd FIFO to be able to specify extended options (eg SA Lifetime).
Added sysctl.conf(5) file for beagleboard architecture (required by the cross compiler).
Refined bgpd(8) knexthop calculations. Fixes massive memory consumption crashes when used with ospfd(8).
Disable acpivideo(4) on ASUS laptops, as some models panic whenever an event is received.
Fix wireless scanning on slow systems with high RX rate and interface in debug mode. Allows association points to recover from ifconfig(8) "ral0 debug down up" in noisy RF environments. Also fixed some association failures.
Allow route(8) destination/prefixlen syntax for ipv6 routes.
After connect() returns EINPROGRESS the connection can still fail, relayd(8) will now check with getsockopt if the socket is still open.
Use S_ISFIFO and S_ISSOCK instead of lseek() to determine whether a fd is a socket, pipe or named pipe.
When cp(1) copies a file using sparse mode, truncate the file based on current seek offset instead of the reported original length.
USB HID parser now supports multiple report IDs. Added hid_get_report_id(3) to get an id of a descriptor.
New event-driven tftp-proxy(8) replaces the old one run out of inetd(8).
Disabled SSLv2 in the OpenSSL code base.
Better fdisk(8) bounds checks and less unuseful help texts.
In bgpd(8), limit the setsockopt(2) while loops to prevent them from running away if the call fails when a peer bounces at the wrong time.
Fix libtool(1) handling of ldconfig library directory searches.
Make tmux(1) command exec functions return an enum rather than -1/0/1 values and add new value to mean "leave client running but don't attach". Fixes problems with using some commands in a command sequence.
Make sure processes don't get scheduled on CPUs which have been taken out of the scheduler.
Fix packet length issue in pf(4) address translation for icmp error packets.
Reduce the number of unnecessary IPIs sent on amd64 smp machines by calling need_resched() only if the priority is lower than the current running process.
Make smtpd(8) accept address literals for the recipient domain.
libtool(1) changes: added LT::OSConfig for config values, and walk the object to print the config (instead of printing the values manually); made $mode into an actual object; added a dump method (simplifying the --config call).
Added the Chicony x200 camera to usbdevs.
Fixed a mandoc(1) assert() raised by "RS" when following "TP" without a tag.
Allow httpd(8) to build even if sslv2 is disabled.
Updated to freetype-2.4.10.
Updated nginx(8) to 1.2.2; start using /var/www/cache instead of /var/www/tmp.
mandoc(1) basic support for "-Tman .In" and "-Tman .Ft and .Fn"; implemented "-Tman .Bd" -offset and -compact, "-Tman .Sm", "-Tman .Bk"; after .Lb in library section, break the line in the final output.
Check for valid partition when fdisk(8) "select"ing a partition.
mandoc(1) "-mdoc -Tman" fixes: right after .Ns, avoid breaking the line in man code; after .Fl without arguments, do not insert a blank into man code; before each .Nm in .Sh SYNOPSIS, insert a .br into man code; skip .Pp arguments, don't copy them to man code.
Fixed an ehci(4) abort loop problem when aborting a transfer.
Unbreak Mesa GLX1.3 constructors with software dri. Makes clutter/cogl works with software acceleration.
Don't enable Mesa INTEL_swap_event unconditionally. Unbreaks clutter/cogl and other toolkits.

Support for gaming-style USB keyboards (that use a variable for each separate key in the HID report).
cwm(1) querying for Xinerama now done per display, not per screen.
pkg_add(1) sets -i on automatically for ttys; uses -i/-I to force interactive/non interactive mode.
ssh(1) setting of tty_flag moved to after config parsing, so RequestTTY options are correctly picked up (bz#1995).
Fixed ssh(1) memory leak of passed-in environment variables and connection context when new session message is malformed (bz#2003).
Added ssh-keygen(1) options to specify starting line number and number of lines to process when screening moduli candidates. Allows processing of different parts of a candidate moduli file in parallel.

Support added for external L2 cache controller on Indy/Indigo2 R4600SC and Indy R5000SC processor modules.
Get mips64 L2 line size from configuration register instead of hardcoding smallest possible size; and on kernels with 16KB pages, SyncDCachePage on physical (not virtual) addresses where possible.
Change arc4random(3) arc4random_uniform() calculations to simplify code and make slightly faster.
Replace mips64 R5000 and R10000 family assembly cache routines with C equivalents (rm cache_r*.d in kernel compile directories after updating).
adb(4/macppc) improvements brought back that were lost in reversion: fixed backspace key under X11; use the command key (58) as modifier in console for all European keyboards; don't use small enter key (52) as modifier in console for the fr, sg, and sv_nodead layouts; don't redefine keys that are inherited from the default layout (de, uk).
Improved config(8) error messages when removing/recreating symlinks in the build dir.
Changes to compat_linux(8): pool_get() flags changed from WAITOK to NOWAIT to avoid a potential lost-wakeup; linux_futex.c now sleeps on the actual data address (not on the stack address of the pointer to the data); implemented linux_sys_tgkill and added extra argument validation.
Added "control mode" that lets tmux(1) commands be sent and output received on stdout(4).
When using mg(1) M->, place cursor near bottom of window like emacs, instead of middle of page.
Do not crash when the current tmux(1) session has no window.

In the smtpd(8) code a "struct scheduler_info" abstraction is introduced and used as a value carrier instead of "struct envelope".
IP30.MP kernels will store the CURCPU pointer in a slower way but which works in memory areas above 2 GB (physical); the mips64 port no longer restricts continuous-page allocations to memory in the low 4 GB.
On the octeon port the TLB size is now dynamically calculated.
bsd.port.arch.mk(5) learns to distinguish in between big and little endian machines via BE_ARCHS and LE_ARCHS (to be tested against NOT_FOR_ARCHS and ONLY_FOR_ARCHS).

tmux(1) uses the set "default-shell" not _PATH_BSHELL to spawn commands.
Network code now allows attributes to be passed with prefixes (eg MRT dumps with prefixes for bgpctl(8)).
Replaced Loongson2F assembly cache routines with C code (remove cache_loongson2.d in your kernel build directories).
Proper support for the so-called "fast mode" of the Indigo2 ECC memory controller on sgi.
Add tcpcib(4) to support the Intel Atom E600 watchdog.
Teach rain(6) to calculate terminal delays like worms(6), avoids network saturation if run over ssh.
RFC 2461 Router Solicitation flushing will remove all IPv6 routes on a specified gateway, not only CONNECTED ones; clear routes when RA with RouterLifetime of 0 is sent; and use correct priorities when installing routes acquired via redirects.

smtpd(8) allows checking a partial key in a key set (eg comparing address to netmask).
Fixed twin-channel ahc(4) device support. Only affects ahc at eisa(4) since no ahc at pci(4) are twin-channel.
Changed smtpd.conf(5) syntax for makemap(8) virtual domains configuration: "accept for virtual vmap [...]" becomes "accept for virtual map vmap [...]" to keep syntax consistent with to-be-implemented relay rules through maps.
smtpd.conf(5) map declarations extended to allow the following to work: map "foobar" source plain "/etc/mail/foobar".
