Dear all,

I read man freebsd-update but it has not answered my questions. That is,
after I have issued freebsd-update fetch/install, where can I find
information about if the installed updates require recompiling the
kernel or system restart?

Thank you in advance!

Maybe I'm confused, but I thought freebsd-update installed precompiled binaries of the generic kernel and world. Therefore, you would need to reboot if the kernel changed. Freebsd-update should tell you what will be changed after it finishes the fetch. I don't recall if it also tells you what it installed.
