Joerg Sonnenberger noted that on the next update of your system(s), be careful using “make upgrade”, as a consistent world is needed. The recent crtbegin/crtend changes may give some trouble. It also may be a good idea to rebuild ports, especially those that use C++.
The kernel mailing list is getting hit with a Windows mail virus in a big way; be careful when viewing it through your mail client/news interface if you use Windows.
Update: fixed now.
Matt Dillon has added bind-9.2.4rc4 to
contrib. This replaces bind8 that was being used for DragonFly (and I assume FreeBSD-4) by default. Things may be somwhat unstable for a few days; if that is trouble for you, don’t update your system this week.
The latest dev numbering changes from Matt Dillon will break the NVIDIA binary driver, if you are using it. Emiel Kollof is working on a new version, and until that’s set, avoid updating if you want to keep your NVIDIA driver working.
Matt Dillon’s tracked down a nasty filesystem corruption bug in the
lockf code; everyone should update, rebuild, reboot, and do a
fsck to make sure your disk is intact.
Because of a commit at 2004/04/29 03:06:41 PDT, your next upgrade will need a buildworld –
make quickworld won’t catch it. This was helpfully noted by David Rhodus.
If you updated your kernel today and you are having wierd graphical issues or crashing, put this in
The issue should be fixed very soon.
Matt Dillon’s still missing some parts to the PIPE code in last night’s import from FreeBSD 5. Until this is fixed (hopefully by tomorrow) , the codebase will be somewhat unstable.
Matt Dillon posted that he is doing major work on buildworld code; you may want to update tomorrow and not today, if it was on your agenda. Following is his description of his work plans:

binutils 2.14 is being added in by Matt Dillon, over the next few days.
David Rhodus and Matt Dillon are getting GCC2 and GCC3 into the base system today; updating your source during the next 24 hours may bring you an unstable version.
There’s been a number of people reporting various breakages during install or boot time. To weed out problems caused by old data right away, remember to:
rm -rf /usr/obj
Matt Dillon’s bringing in the ‘DragonFly’ name to replace ‘FreeBSD’ in the source, which may break a number of things over the next few days, including all ports.
James Frazer found, and David Rhodus corroborated, that NTFS support tain’t working.
As part of another discussion, it’s been noted that trying to boot FreeBSD 5.1 and DragonFly from the same disk currently may not work if it’s UFS1, and definitely won’t if it’s UFS2.
/bin/sh had a big introduced recently that would make it crash when booting with a new world. It’s been fixed, so recompile
/bin/sh with updated sources when possible.
