I did all of this in a hour, because I had so many tabs saved from during the week. Don’t get overwhelmed! EuroBSDCon 2016 schedule has been released. OPNsense 16.7 released. 2016Q2 FreeBSD Status Report. SemiBUG has a Twitter. Here’s their last meeting, and the next is 8/23. August 3rd: NYCBUG Installfest. Go just (Read more [...]
Recently published: BSDNow 152, “The Laporte has landed!“, with an interview of Leo Laporte and his move to BSD, and also garbage, with some OpenBSD release conversation scattered in there.
I’m a bit late on this, but: If you are using DragonFly-current, you will need to rebuild world. If you are on 4.4, this won’t matter until you go to 4.6, and you’d be rebuilding world and kernel for that anyway. (4.6 will probably be tagged this weekend.)
The EuroBSDCon 2016 talks and schedule have been released, and oh are we in for a treat! All three major BSD\'s have a \"how we made the network go fast\" talk, nearly every single timeslot has a networking related talk, and most of the non-networking talks look fantastic as well. The OpenBSD related talks are: Embracing the BSD ro [...]

DragonFly 4.6 release candidate 2 has been tagged. You can pull it directly from the master site in img or iso form (check your local mirror instead if possible), or shift to the new tag. “Where is RC1?” you may ask? I tagged the first release candidate some days ago, and this bug was immediately found right after. It was (Rea [...]
Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) has updated the (in-progress) OpenBSD 6.0 release page to indicate that release will occur earlier than is usual: CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: www Changes by: email@example.com 2016/07/23 08:18:28 Modified files: . : 60.html Log message: the 6.0 release date will come as a surprise [...]
The first report from the just-concluded n2k16 hackathon comes from Stefan Sperling, who writes: Because this network hackathon was scheduled very close to the 6.0 release I focused my efforts on fixing bugs. The first bug I encountered was that dhclient no longer works if DHCP return traffic has to pass through a bridge, and the m [...]

The second BETA build for the FreeBSD 11.0 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the amd64, armv6, i386, aarch64, powerpc, powerpc64 and sparc64 architectures are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites.
Adding a new “BUG” category, cause there’s enough ongoing BSD user group activity these days that it’s a reoccurring theme. That makes me happy. OPNsense 16.7-RC2 released. DiscoverBSD for 2016/07/18. Another Release of FreeBSD on the Horizon: My Thoughts. Why we use OpenBSD at VidiGuard. Thinking about switching fro [...]
Matthew Dillon added NVMe support recently, and he also made some changes to DragonFly’s I/O system. His test system was able to reach over a million IOPS. That’s bananas!
Garbage 35 is up, with news about ChiBUG, an OpenBSD hackathon, and the ritual shaming of computer equipment.
HOPE starts today in New York City, and if you are going, there’s at least one BSD presence at the show that could use volunteers.
Fuzzing sounds cute, but it’s about finding security problems, not checking for adorable guinea pigs or llamas or something like that. It’s also episode 151 of BSDNow. It looks like there’s no specific interview this week, but plenty of interesting topics and links listed.
the i915 support in DragonFly now matches the Linux 4.4 kernel, which is good news if you have a Broxton, Skylake, or Cherryview processor, plus it adds a variety of fixes.
