Catching up on some items I missed last week.



DragonFly 6.2.1 released!

But wait, you say, what about 6.2.0?  I performed my biyearly tagging error and screwed up the 6.2.0 tag, so we’re releasing with 6.2.1.  On the plus side, this last minute redo let two bug fixes creep in that would have been in a later 6.2.1 anyway.  This will be your first chance to try NVMM/Qemu support if you follow releases and not bleeding edge.

The release notes have the details, including the new, improved build process, and a link to the surprisingly-large list of all the changes and closed bugs.
