Last news item is the saddest.
Mini-ZFS theme this week.
Note the new-to-me book news in there.
You will notice some clustering of links; my list filled up fast.
Software releses is the mini-theme, I guess.
No theme this week other than of course BSD.
I realize my title is a little bit buffalo buffalo buffalo, but it makes sense: getopt(3) now has a double colon option to indicate an optional argument. I link to it because I like seeing the length of the trip to DragonFly. It started as a GNU option, then showed up in NetBSD, brought to FreeBSD, and now I’m posting about it.
Note the first three items are events with deadlines happening now.
Watch that Kernighan video; he is what a historian would call a primary source.
The UNIX compliance link is worth reading all the way through; it is a chunk of history I did not know at all.
Catching up on some items I missed last week.
End-of-year articles I am just catching up to now.
Merry Christmas! I am probably opening presents or poking my children to wake up and open presents hurry hurry, as you read this.
A little short this week but the holidays are catching up to me.
Not just release announcements this week.
Some history, some games.
SEMIBUG’s meeting is tonight, online, with Deb Goodkin of the FreeBSD Foundation presenting.
