- FreeBSD on RISC-V as a voting machine test. BSD is common for embedded, high-security hardware – and people tend to not know because it’s embedded, high-security hardware. (via)

REDCOM also has jobs to fill in New York, where I work. Please, apply if you see a job that interests you – and tell me.

Here’s something I haven’t see before: at the time of me typing this, there are commits in DragonFly, FreeBSD, and I assume NetBSD (haven’t found the commit), but the 2019-5612 CVE entry is still shown as reserved and not public. This may change by the time you read this article, of course.
Update: the original source, found by an intrepid reader.
This is a somewhat pre-made post coming off a week on the road, so I packed it chock-full.
All over the map this week.
And overflow continues! I am secretly pleased.
BSD Now 307 accomplishes another trifecta week, mentioning Free, Net, and Open, and also mentioning that vBSDCon’s call for papers closes tomorrow – I’m mentioning it now cause it’ll be too late to mention for In Other BSDs this weekend.
Done early, for once! I managed to complete this by Thursday night.
I have a backlog of more BSD links to add, beyond this – it was a busy week!
I linked to some other BSD link roundups, so the joy of clicking can continue.
I was a bit low on BSD links last week; not so this week.
I have an inexplicably short BSD section this week. Post-BSDCan fatigue? I don’t know, but I have lots on the docket for tomorrow, I promise.
Watch for post-BSDCan slides and material and ideas to show up in the next few weeks.
I have more links than I expected.
The last weather station link is a real gem.
This week’s BSD Now covers (ecumenically) OpenBSD’s release, NetBSD 9, the FreeBSD jails book, and so on. Check the show notes for details.
I’m still not making through all the stuff I need to link to, but this is enough to keep you busy for today.
