LibreSSL update and a reminder

LibreSSL in DragonFly has had a minor update, from 3.2.3 to 3.2.4, thanks to Daniel Fojt.  It’s a bugfix update, but I’m using it as a chance to remind everyone you can use LibreSSL for everything in dports, too.

Lazy Reading for 2021/02/21

XScreenSaver alpha testers sought.  Needs non-Linux testers; …

BSD Now 390: Commercial Unix Killer

The menacing BSD Now for this week covers a bunch of stuff, not just post hoc arguments, but there’s a special request: old retail BSD software.  If you have older commercial disks or images floating around, they want to know.

New dports packages

There’s a new build of DragonFly 5.8 binary packages available.  There’s a sudo fix in there for the recent public cross-platform CVE it had, plus the linked announcement describes how to get around a pkg upgrade bug.
