Not directly DragonFly related, but still good to know of: One of Apple’s lawsuits was tossed.  The right to post early details about consumer products is not that important, but the ability of the press to report truthful details without ‘revenge‘ is important.

Source: 802.11, LWKT changes

There were a number of interesting commits today: Sepherosa Ziehau’s new 802.11 framework, taken in part from FreeBSD 6, is now committed, and he’s also updated the man pages to match. (minor yet very important!) His ath(4) driver will be following soon. Also, Matthew Dillon has moved the LWKT from a token system to spinlocks – see the commit message for details. Finally, there are some side benefits for DragonFly from the Coverity scan of FreeBSD.
