Obtaining DragonFly BSD assets

Versions available

DragonFly BSD has two versions available:

  • RELEASE: Typically this is the recommended version to run for regular users. It is supposed to be stable and receives fixes when needed, i.e. patches for security, stability and sometimes, although less often, features.

  • Bleeding-edge: This version receives all the ongoing development thus, at times, it is less stable and can produce more crashes. This version is recommended for developers.

Type of content

Every mirror may have the following content:

  • DPorts binary packages.
  • Release ISOs and images.
