DragonFly has generally shifted over to dports for 3rd-party software management, away from pkgsrc.  Because of that, I haven't been building binary packages of the quarterly pkgsrc releases.  Pierre Abbat asked why on users@, and here's my explanation of the change.
If you're around New York City on Wednesday, Boris Kochergin will be giving a talk at the NYCBUG meeting about how he and his employer, New York Internet, managed to be in the middle of Hurricane Sandy and survive without interruption. That same announcement lets drop the news that NYCBSDCon will happen next February 1st 8th.
Moved 20 servers to new hardware this week.  Normally my workplace doesn't get very active until snow hits.  Normally.  Anyway, going for the long sentences this week. Your unrelated link of the week: Proper Opossum Massage.  Yes, it's a serious video, but it shouldn't be taken seriously.
This week was relatively quiet, but also had the most cross-BSD work I've seen in a while.  Look at the links and you'll see. Here's more on Unbound, since it seems to be a trend.
If you want to boot from a Hammer 2 /boot volume, you now can.  Hammer 1 never worked well as /boot, though it was technically possible.  Hammer 2 will be just fine. Note that you can't turn on recently-added disk compression since the bootloader doesn't understand it, and Hammer 2 is not ready for anything but being worked on.  Don't try it unless you're ready to be submitting code changes to fix Hammer2.
When Sepherosa Ziehau decides to improve something, he goes all out.  For example, he recently improved the mxge(4) driver for Myricom 10G network cards - which is for relatively older hardware - and improved performance by 150Mbps.
This will not be a surprise to anyone seeing the work being done, but: All 5 DragonFly/Summer of Code students for 2013 passed, as noted today in emails from Google.  It was possibly our best year yet in terms of buckling down and just plain working.  
Francois Tigeot posted his work on the KMS driver for Radeon video cards.  He's looking for help since he's low on time for the immediate future, and this is a project that could benefit everyone.  (Well, everyone with the right video card.)
Joris GIOVANNANGELI and Pawel Dziepak both have published final reports for this year's DragonFly/Summer of Code experience.  Both of them say they want to keep working on DragonFly, which is exactly the result I want.  There may be more if the other students have time.  A final report wasn't required, but it is good feedback. Related: Joris is working on Capsicum for DragonFly and published an API document describing how it has worked/will work.  
Please welcome our newest committers: Joris Giovannangeli and Mihai Carabas.  Joris has already updated bc(1) and dc(1) to match what OpenBSD has.  You may recognize Joris's name from his just-finished Google Summer of Code project for DragonFly, and Mihai Carabas from both this year's and last year's Summer of Code.
This week, the sewer drain for my house clogged.  Fixing that is not fun.  What is fun is reading random semi-technical articles around the Internet.  So get clicking!
Finally, a quieter week.
Antonio Huete Jimenez has added a new rconfig script that automatically mirrors the installed disks with ccd(4).  You don't remember what to do with rconfig(8)?  Automatically (and headlessly) install DragonFly, of course!  There's already other examples - they're just shell scripts.
mxge(4) and ecc(4) have been updated by Sepherosa Ziehau.  Not sure what's new for mxge(4), a 10G network card driver, but ecc(4) now supports the memory controller for new Haswell systems.
I put together a list of what I'm thinking could be in the next DragonFly release.  Going by our regular schedule, that's a bit more than a month off.  Of note: Summer of Code material and defaulting to dports.  Follow the thread for more.  
Something I only just recently found out about: BSDNow.  They're planning weekly videos with BSD news and interviews.  I say 'planning', but as of this writing, both Episode 1 and Episode 2 (which is much better quality) are already available.  Another episode is planned this week.  Episode 3 is out already.  
ZFS was originally created at Sun and open sourced.  Sun was absorbed by Oracle and stopped being open (or even really existing), so ZFS was taken up by several separate groups - FreeBSD and Illumos being two examples.  OpenZFS has been announced, in part to provide common reference for other platforms that might implement it and probably to avoid capability fragmentation.  It's certainly a good idea. (If I have my history wrong, please correct me.)
