A bit short cause I ran out of time.
I had a lot of links built up for this; finished early.
The NetBSD Annual General Meeting is today.
“BSD” is in almost every line as a title. Maybe not a surprise, but visually noticeable.
How-to week rather than updates week.
Last news item is the saddest.
Mini-ZFS theme this week.
Note the new-to-me book news in there.
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.
Not just release announcements this week.
Relatively quiet this week for BSD items, but it’s a holiday week in the US.
Somewhat short this week, but there’s several releases.
It is status report season!
I forgot to link to BSD Now 421: ZFS eats CPU on Thursday!
I have some barely-BSD links this week but I don’t think you’ll mind.
Aaron LI’s added NVMM, hardware acceleration for virtual machines, to DragonFly.
The version of qemu in dports is not set up to support this, yet. Until then, you can download a prebuilt version.
Since NVMM originated on NetBSD, the NetBSD documentation page for it describes how to use it quite well. There’s a man page in DragonFly for it too, of course. There’s even basic machines to try.
More BUG meetings are happening, which is great.
