BUG meetings seem to be happening again, which is nice.

DragonFly and 6.x packages

Since DragonFly 6.x is a major number change, there’s no prebuilt packages that match that release number.  As of this writing, the mirror master site shows 5.10 packages, which would work… if that was the next release.  That’s where the number change trips it up.  There should be new 6.x packages in the next few days.  (Thanks to Jan Peter Vogt for the reminder)

6.0 release plans

I’ll be working on branching and releasing DragonFly 6.0 over the next while.  We’re overdue for a release.  Tentatively, I’ll branch tomorrow night, and start working on test images and release notes.  The release will come in about a week, if there’s no surprises.
