Matthias Schmidt has created a page for DragonFly project ideas, for Google’s Summer of Code 2009. (Nobody’s accepted yet, but we were last year and I’m optimistic we can be again) If you would be available to mentor, add projects you’d enjoy mentoring. If you’ll be an eligible student, give it a read.
Dru Lavigne was at DCBSDCon, and her initial notes mention Robert Luciani’s talk on threading in DragonFly.
One last build of pkgsrc 2008Q4 is complete on pkgbox.dragonflybsd.org; 2008Q4 packages for 2.2 will be available at time of release.
Thanks to Matthias Schmidt donating some machine time, I have pkgsrc 2008Q4 packages built for a recent DragonFly 2.1 system but labeled 2.2 already built. They’re uploaded to pkgbox.dragonflybsd.org and should be available on a mirror by the time of the 2.2 release.
As Simon ‘corecode’ Schubert notes, DragonFly is now in a ‘Feature Freeze’ for two weeks. Please work on bug fixes in the intervening timeframe, and push them to the ‘master’ branch. Changes for the release will be pushed to the 2.2 release branch. Matthew Dillon has more details.
A post from Matthew Dillon notes that development will go into a ‘mini-freeze’ for two weeks while the 2.2 release is put together, along with news of a DVD release for 2.2 that includes many prebuilt packages, and some Hammer details.
