I've uploaded DragonFly 3.0.3 disk images, both ISO and IMG.  They should start appearing on a mirror site near you in the next 24 hours.  This took a while after the tagging, I know, but I wanted to make sure every one of them booted.  I didn't on a previous release, and regretted it.
Francois Tigeot benchmarked several different operating systems using Postgres 9.2b3, including DragonFly, and published the results.  I have a local copy of the PDF since the attachment didn't really survive the archiving.  Follow the thread for discussion.  The Linux results look abnormally high, so it is possible that something different is happening on that platform...
There's certainly no theme to this week's links.  I even manage to avoid my usual git and vim links, strangely. Your unrelated comic link of the week: Cul De Sac.   The strip is ending due to the creator's health issues, but what he has done is marvelous.  This is one of the few newspaper strips that is both visually interesting and often abruptly laugh out loud funny, without being patronizing.
Do you happen to have the saved messages for one or more @dragonflybsd.org mailing lists sitting around?  Hopefully in mbox format?  I'm working on getting Mailman installed to replace bestserv, and being able to bring in the old messages would be nice.
DragonFly had a successful Google Summer of Code even this year.  It marks our 5th time participating, 7th if you count  Google Code-In events. Mihai Carabas worked on adding SMT/HT awareness to the DragonFly scheduler.   This project was very successful.  The original goal was just to take advantage of threading with the scheduler, but the benchmarks published by Mihai show in general a 5% speedup from these scheduler changes.  His work has already been committed. Vishesh Yadav implemented an inotify interface in DragonFly.  inotify is an originally Linux-based system for monitoring files and directories for changes.  A specific use for this is an inotify-aware locate program, so that a list of file locations can be kept 'live'.  His code for the inotify interface should be committed to DragonFly very soon. (This was written in part for Google to use on their Open Source Blog.)
I'm working on building new images, but: DragonFly 3.0.3 has been tagged.  If you're running 3.0, you can update and get some of the recent bug fixes.
I noticed that this recent commit from Sepherosa Ziehau is a bug fix for jme(4).  The commit thanks a JMicron employee for help.  It's always appreciated when a vendor is helpful to an open-source project for hardware support.  It's also something you should consider the next time you are shopping for computer parts.
Antonio Huete has updated dhclient(8) to match the OpenBSD version from whence it comes.  I think all (most?) the BSDs use the OpenBSD dhcp client as a base now.  The only user-facing change I see in a quick reading of the changes is a new 'egress' command line option.
I think I've made it through my backlog of things to post.  For no apparent reason, I ended up with a whole bunch of 'this vs. that' links this week. Your unrelated link of the week: Taipan!  I played this on the Apple ][ and loved it.  The buy-low-sell-high game is an old genre that hasn't been used in newer games in the same fashion as roguelikes or sidescrollers.  The only recent equivalents I can think of are Drug Wars and maaaaybe Eve Online.
John Marino has been on a tear fixing pkgsrc packages, and he posted a list of what he considers the most necessary packages to get working on DragonFly.  Several people have already stepped up and fixed them if you follow the thread.  If one of these packages is something you use, it's worth looking at.
If you wanted to try Hammer 2 and you have several DragonFly-current systems around (virtual or not), Matthew Dillon has the instructions.  Keep in mind that this is not something ready for use; it can't actually free up space, for instance.  It's neat that you can have multiple systems passing data back and forth already, though!
Seen on Ycombinator News, the Vim and Vi Tips e-book on Amazon is _free_ today, and possibly just today.  It's a Kindle book, but there's software Kindle readers from Amazon if you don't have one.
John Marino finished another bulk build of pkgsrc, and reports a 96.4% package success rate, using DragonFly and pkgsrc-current.   We're just a week or so from the next quarterly pkgsrc freeze, come to think of it...
3.2 is the next major release of DragonFly, which will be relatively soon by the every-6-months release schedule.  John Marino's put together another catch-all bug report for that release.
I was on the road and missed last week's summaries for Summer of Code, and we're almost at the end of the session, so I'll just link to the most recent items from Mihai Carabas (there's a lot there!), Vishesh Yadav,  and Ivan Freitas.
