Reduce, the “second oldest computer algebra system”, has been ported to DragonFly (and there’s work on other BSDs). The post about this has lots of links to more information; if you’re a Maple or Mathematica user, this will definitely interest you.
I like code that travels through multiple BSDs.
I haven’t been able to say this in a while, but: I like cross-pollination.
Losing power at home this week put a dent in my reading throughput, so to speak, but this will do.

- TrueNAS 11.1 – What’s New.
Shutdowns are a bit faster in DragonFly, thanks to the addition of a QUICKHALT shortcut. How much faster? It depends on what devices you have mounted, I suspect. I haven’t yet updated and tried.
Happy Almost Fool’s Easter Day! I have to be at work in a few hours, at 3 AM, so this is all I was able to find in the time I have.

Aaron LI wrote a tool to update a running DragonFly system from an existing image – release or snapshot. I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s very promising. It’s up on Github so if this gets you excited, you know what to do.
This is a sort of nice non-report report, cause EFI booting just works fine, as you’d hope/expect.
