Greg Troxel, on the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list, shared a script he wrote for automatic maintenance/update/cleanup of his installed pkgsrc packages, via pkg_rolling-replace.
Alex Hornung has added support for a bunch of hardware to enable a Soekris 5501 to run DragonFly. We now have a watchdog and gpio framework as a side effect.
The October issue of the Open Source Business Resource is out, with Arts and Media as the theme. The article about film production using open-source tools is especially good, as articles like that tend to be a list of application names only, while this article goes into the whys and wherefores.
Sdävtaker has created a new blog, similar in design to this one, at http://dfbsd.trackbsd.org.ar/. It’s in Spanish!
It’s been mentioned before, but it’s moved: Simon ‘corecode’ Schubert has a version of the FreeBSD NVIDIA graphics driver that works on DragonFly.
Mentioned here for completeness: tcsh has been updated, along with libarchive and opencrypto.
DragonFly 2.4.1 has been released; this is recommended for any users of 2.4.0, as there’s a lot of little bugfixes. (Check the tag list to see all the fixes.) Next time, we may make a release candidate first.
A build of pkgsrc packages for DragonFly 2.4 and DragonFly 2.5 has been completed. The 2.5 packages are on avalon.dragonflybsd.org, and the 2.4 packages are about halfway there.
