2.11BSD is a release of UNIX for the PDP-11 by a consortium of CSRG and the USENIX Association. It only ran on PDP-11 models with Supervisor mode. It was basically the same as 2.10BSD, with some upgrades.

Some of the things that were added were:

  • Support for full 4.3BSD networking (using Supervisor mode)
  • Support for long filenames
  • 4.3BSD applications that were missing from 2.10BSD
