Newcons console driver integration


Project Status: In Progress

FreeBSD Developer: Aleksandr Rybalko, Ed Maste

The Newcons project will deliver an updated FreeBSD console driver with Unicode support and improved support for graphics modes. This will improve interoperability with X11 and Kernel Mode Setting (KMS) graphics drivers.

This project is currently being integrated, with an initial release in FreeBSD 10.1. Additional improvements to the new console infrastructure are ongoing.
