I mentioned a new committer for DragonFly, Sergey Zigachev, recently. He hasn't shown in the commit logs for DragonFly directly - cause he's fixing up dports. I'm mentioning that because the amount of work that goes into dports to keep all those ports working on DragonFly is separate and unseen - but necessary.
Hopefully there's a new ISO/img on the mirrors for DragonFly 6.2.2 by the time you read this - or you can just update your installation. The changelog is short, because this is a bugfix-level release. Also, don't forget there's a new set of binary packages out; update that too if you haven't.
If you're interested in having virtio_console on DragonFly, keep an eye on this bug report.
There's a new dports build, and there's been some updates so a new point release to 6.2.2 for DragonFly is a good idea. The new binary packages are available now with 'pkg upgrade', and I'll work on 6.2.2 over the next few days.
It rhymes if you say it out loud. Jason Tubnor will present at 7 PM tonight (Detroit local time) on installing and configuring Xfce and KDE on FreeBSD.
Headlines from this here Digest show up on dragonflybsd.org, and have for a long time. They are now joined with reports from the continuous integration builds of DragonFly (i.e. Jenkins) DragonFly is automatically rebuilt to test recent commits, and there's a report for each build on the build machine.
If you want to run DragonFly as a bhyve guest using UEFI, here's the recipe.
I'm on at SEMIBUG's meeting right now.
I hope to have a recording to post later. Nnnnope! A lesson for you and me both; test recording before an actual event starts.
ChiBUG's monthly (rescheduled) meeting is tonight. RSVP if you can attend, to make sure the restaurant has the seating.
