The third release of DragonFly was made available on January 7, 2006. Many new drivers and bug fixes were integrated into the system. GCC version 3.4 was now required to build the system, because the older compiler suite would no longer work, due to the increasing use of TLS support. NetBSD's pkgsrc was made the default packaging system, although the buildtools were not yet included in DragonFly's CVS repository. An official set of prebuilt packages made specifically for this release was not available, and many packages (KDE and GNOME most notably) in the pkgsrc snapshot did not build cleanly on the system. Citrus from the NetBSD project was also imported.
