This week’s BSD Now is all FreeBSD and NetBSD news items – go read/listen; I have no special items to pick out but it’s all enjoyable.
DragonFly 5.8.1 is released, a bugfix update for 5.8.0. The release tag commit has the list of changes, or you can go right to the release page. My users@ post has upgrade instructions.
There’s a couple more small test/debug tools in DragonFly; possibly only useful if you like to poke at internals, but who doesn’t, really?
