Straight open tab dump, again!
A late update: BSDCan 2019 registration, plus an update.
Lots of BUG news this week; thank you all for the leads on groups to watch.
A reminder: tell me about bugs.
Heading towards spring, and I have weekend work, so pasting in everything I’ve got handy:
There’s a number of long-running BSD series out there nowadays, some of which I’m linking to here. That’s a nice change.
If these aren’t enough links, some of them are links to more links.
I didn’t even realize Summer of Code was upon us again.
This week’s BSD Now talks about a number of NetBSD things including rc.d as you might guess, and covers Project Trident. Listen/read in if you are unfamiliar.
Built entirely from open tabs.
This is all backlogged links; I have even more tabs open.
Sascha Wildner has added makefs(8) to DragonFly, with changes of course. This chunk of code has already traveled around two other BSDs.
Inadvertent theme: release news.
- Our Software Dependency Problem. Hard thinking about something many, many people don’t think hard enough about. This talks about software, but it’s directly analogous to ports/dports/pkgsrc. I’m leading with this even though it’s not directly about BSD, cause it affects anyone using a packaging system.
- I mentioned it before, but FOSDEM 2019, happening right now in Brussels, has a BSD Devroom with a lot of things happening in it; you could spend your entire Saturday in there.
- And something that has me quite excited: The Pinebook Pro, among other hardware announcements for FOSDEM. BSD is being mentioned right there as something to install on it, rather than as an aftermarket hack like with Chromebooks – heartwarming, I tell you. (via)
- Unix flowers. Look for birthtoken while you are at it. (via)
- FreeNAS has Plugins? A casual look at it seems to push some features into pfSense territory.
- Next NYC*BUG: 2/6.
- OPNsense 19.1-RC1 released. Wait, 19.1 is out.
- join-ing any open wifi network is now possible.
- FreeBSD Training @ SCaLE 17x (March 8, 2019) (via)
- NetBSD Virtual Machine Monitor. (via)
- ClonOS 19.01-RELEASE (first public release). (via)
- Valuable News – 2019/01/18 and Valuable News – 2019/01/25 and Valuable News – 2019/02/01.
- HardenedBSD 2018Q4 Status Report. (via)
- Florian Obser on unwind(8).
- MightnightBSD Roadmap.
- SoloBSD 19.01-STABLE.
- fnaify 1.2 released.
- At The Gates, 4x strategy game running on BSD. (via)
There’s some convention stuff scattered in here; we’re heading towards the active season…
Overflow from the past two weeks. I’ll have my email and tab backlog cleared next week.
I like when I can get Net, Free, and Open items all in the same week.
A big reading week. Enjoy!
I had a lot of tabs to close, if you can’t tell.
Once again playing catchup – but we all benefit from the abundance.
