Done early, for once! I managed to complete this by Thursday night.
This could be an In Other BSDs item, but it’s worth highlighting: saugns is a “Scriptable AUdio GeNeration System”; a utility for generating sounds – specifically FM modulation, in a way that will make you think “synthesizers!” There’s a whole language behind it, and the program, as the author, Joel K Pettersson, points out, compiles with no trouble on every BSD.
BSD Now 306 is up, with the normal mix of stories about multiple BSDs… Except two separate ones are about DragonFly, so this week is extra good.
Brian Reynolds will be presenting on “Everyday ZFS” at the next NYCBUG meeting, tomorrow, at the usual location. Go, if you are near.
If you are near the Chicago area, go to the ChiBUG meeting happening tomorrow night.
I have a backlog of more BSD links to add, beyond this – it was a busy week!
I’m late posting this because I was on an island in Lake Huron instead of near a computer, but here it is now: BSD Now 304 is titled “Changing face of Unix” – that link is the show notes and will tell you more.
There’s a meeting of the NetBSD Japan user’s group, and an informal users session, tomorrow, in Tokyo. Go, if you are near. (via)
This week’s BSD Now talks about the normal assortment of news, including DragonFly’s release, and an explanation of the Vulkan framework in OpenBSD; something I hadn’t read about yet.
A happy note for the end of the week: I like seeing cross-BSD work. (and POSIX)
This week’s BSD Now talks a whole lot about ZFS, which is no surprise given the OpenZFS events going on. There’s other news, of course.
Matt Parnell is presenting Asterisk and FreePBX on FreeBSD at SEMIBUG’s monthly meeting, tomorrow, in Troy, Michigan. Go, if you are near.
Credit goes to SEMIBUG for creating a Google Calendar which makes it slightly more likely I’ll catch the meeting and post about it. Also, a nostalgia moment about the bad old days: I am so glad specialized hardware is no longer needed just to get on the phone network, since VoIP is widespread these days. I hated dealing with flaky PRI lines.
I linked to some other BSD link roundups, so the joy of clicking can continue.
BSD Now 302 leads with a report on my favorite BSD and the recent VM improvements via an article I didn’t link to, plus other systems.
There’s a BSD User Group meeting in Düsseldorf, tomorrow. Go, if you are near. Speaking/reading German probably helps.
ChiBUG is meeting tomorrow at Giordano’s. RSVP to the mailing list and go, if you are near.
I am a bit late posting the newest BSD Now episode, which leads with interesting news: accelerated video through bhyve.
