Package update 7 for 18.12-RELEASE is now available

submited 12 March 2019

Trident system changes of note: The post-install default ZFS block size has been changed to 4KB (ashift=12). This is better for performance, but only impacts new ZFS datasets that are created after this change. No impact for current ZFS system layout. The “Indirect Branch Restricted Speculation” system control has now been enabled for all Project Trident systems. This should ensure a higher level of security.
