I’m writing this on the road, so it’s a bit low on links. Sorry! I will have much more next week.
This note from James Cook describes how to get Wireguard functioning on DragonFly; his linked patch is not necessary at this point since it’s been committed to dports – though not in the latest binaries.
Tonight, via Zoom: George Rosamond, “Why Privacy/Security (usually) Needs Anonymity”, for NYCBUG. Go, even if you aren’t near.
Thanks to yrabbit, there’s a full FPGA toolchain possible on DragonFly. It’s preliminary, but it works.

I’m actually some days late in reporting this, but there’s a new full build of packages for DragonFly 6.0; it’s following the quarterly release schedule for ports, so 2021Q2 is the base.
This goes with the recent merges from -current into 6.0. Now is a good time to update your system completely, if you have not already.
