Lazy Reading for 2016/08/28

Enjoy!  I am going to have irregular network access over the next week, so this may be the only post for several days.

I don’t know how I ended up with 3 pfSense items to lead with – it just happened.

For once, I’m not working on Saturday, so even though this is last minute, at least I’m not in a race with the clock.

A manageable batch of links this week.

Your unrelated link of the week: Spaceplan.  A clicker game, and very pretty.  (via)

The Lumina release is the highlight of the week.


You probably didn’t use this anyway

The last bits of Linux emulation have been removed from DragonFly.  It’s 32-bit, so it’s been unsupported since DragonFly went to 64-bit only with the 4.0 release.  Also, some other 32-bit only items are gone, including the cs, ep, ex, fe, and vx network drivers.  It’s almost impossible that anyone was using it, but it’s notable because that’s some… 15-20k lines of code gone?  Removal of unused code is also positive.

OpenSSH, OpenSSL updates

Because this always happens just after I create a DragonFly release, there’s a new version of OpenSSL.  However, this is for version 1.0.2.  1.0.1 is what’s in the release, and it’s supported through the end of the year.

OpenSSH has a major version bump in DragonFly, to 7.3p1.  This means some features – specifically patches for High Performance Networking – are no longer there, and you’ll get an error if your config file requires them.  Either remove the options from your config, or install OpenSSH from dports.
