Wording changes and additions. Deprecations were found in git log; seems to be rather out of
date. Not all of the deprecations are necessarily useful.

Looks good for the doc side of things.

emaste added a subscriber: jhb.



One final thought, maybe "has been reintegrated, which..." instead of "has been added".

What's in the tree now is a combination of work sponsored by Netgate, kevans, and Foundation-sponsored contractors. The FF sponsored @jhb to rework the crypto to make use of existing kernel primitives where possible and shepherd the module back into the tree.


Not sure about the markup here (what releaseCurrent is); netlink is enabled in GENERIC in main and stable/13, but is not in GENERIC (is a module only) in 13.2.


This one might bump to 15, also gbde is going in 15.

ISA sound cards are deprecated as of:

commit d7620b6ec941fc6239bb2600495c2978181cfe28
Author: Ed Maste <>

    Add deprecation notices to ISA sound cards
    ISA sound cards (and ISA itself) are long obsolete.  NYCBUG dmesgd has
    no entries for any of these devices after 2005.
    Mail to -current and -stable revealed some nostalgic interest, but
    no offers to test or requests to pospone the deprecation.
    Add deprecation notices to device attach routines and man pages for:
    snd_ad1816  Analog Devices AD1816 SoundPort
    snd_ess     Ensoniq ESS
    snd_gusc    Gravis UltraSound (MAX and newer AFAIK)
    snd_mss     Microsoft Sound System
    snd_sbc     Creative Sound Blaster

I added Netgate along with the Foundation. We don't usually list individuals, or at least I haven't seen it done.


{releaseCurrent} is 13.2. I changed this to use GENERIC explicitly.

Address review comments, other minor wording changes.

Minor nit, fixable on commit.

@bcr (or another doc committer), can you approve again?

grahamperrin added inline comments.

Was it previously in a RELEASE?

karels added inline comments.

It looks like wireguard was on releng/13.1 but removed prior to final release. If I'm reading the log correctly, it was not in BETA1.
