If you want to build a kernel with no options, stripped down, here you go. I don’t know how useful it would be…
Matthew Dillon has made significant changes to the callout API in DragonFly. Interesting to look at, but I think no changes from a user point of view.
DragonFly has a new version of libressl, noting cause it has a newer TLS1.3 implementation – something that may be necessary for you.
There’s a minor update to dhcpcd in DragonFly, which may be of specific interest if you’re on an IPv4/IPv6 network – there’s a Preferred option added for that.
binutils and ld in DragonFly have been set to binutils234 and ld.bfd temporarily, for what appears to be work with the EFI bootloader. This should not make a difference for normal use; rebuilding binaries will give you different results but they’ll run.
cpdup(1) will now exactly recreate symlinks. That may be helpful for your backup strategy if it already involves cpdup.
Daniel Fojt’s updated libedit in DragonFly; not huge, but I mention it cause I’ve seen the very first bug fixed in the commit listing; garbled history.
Matthew Dillon added “existence locks” to DragonFly, which as usual he committed with a long, descriptive message.
There’s now -K (kernel) and -U (user env) options to uname. Minor, but good to know the change.
I always thought of cross-pollination – sharing of code between BSDs – as a good thing. This seems like the most basic way to do that: same base sh.
Roy Marples helped out with the news drought (for me) by committing dhcpcd 9.3.0 to DragonFly. There’s a few user-affecting changes in there.
I tagged and built 5.8.2 today, and it should be appearing on a mirror near you, momentarily. The tag commit has a list of the changes, and of course there’s a users@ post to match. It’s a bugfix release, so no major changes – but there’s plenty of little updates.
There’s a security update for ftpd(8) in DragonFly, both current and release. As the note about it says, you shouldn’t use it anyway.
You can now add something to run on first boot after install, only, on DragonFly. This is probably of most use to you if you are building a custom image.
If you want to bring in the DragonFly projects repo, the option has been added to /usr/Makefile. (cd /usr; make projects-create)
Aaron LI has rewritten calendar(1) to support Chinese (lunisolar) and Julian calendars, and along the way added support for other calendars, more options, and generally improved the program. His original source archive is available, as is his reference book.
HAMMER2 now has a ‘growfs’ directive, so if there’s room in the partition, you can expand your HAMMER2 volume to fit. Related: gpt(8) and disklabel(8) now have similar options. fdisk(8) does also.
