FreeBSD 11 - another great release

I am using FreeBSD since it came on AWS and never had any issues with any of the ports and updates.
With FreeBSD 11 Colin Percival continues his excellent job of porting FreeBSD on AWS. I am not sure if it is possible to do future release upgrades (e.g 10->11 was not possible), but I am sure that this will be fixed in any of the upcoming releases knowing the team behind FreeBSD.

Same BSD I expect on hardware, but in EC2. Everything works as expected...including buildworlds, etc. As always, since we don't have access to the console in EC2, be careful with fstab and things that might interrupt the boot process.
