More thinking topics than version changes this week, which is interesting.
Michael W. Lucas will be presenting at SemiBUG tomorrow, talking about the OpenBSD web stack.
I measure the success of In Other BSDs by how many different BSD flavors I can reference. This is a good week.
Lots of storage this week.
A lot of the real content this week is buried in the comments, strangely.
Note the end this week of pc98, the most focused of niche platforms.
Done all at the last minute.
Accidental theme this week: books.
This turned into a BSD User Group event list, which makes me happy. There was nothing like that 3 or 5 or whatever years ago.
This week’s BSDNow has extended notes about FreeBSD and lld, the LLVM linker, plus notes on the NetBSD scheduler, OpenBSD changes, and so on. It’s very ecumenical.
There’s always a rush of links after a holiday, as people sit at home and catch up on what they’ve wanted to do.
Much better this week; I actually have links.
I have a pretty significant backlog of links for this week – to the point I had to open a separate browser window to sort out open tabs.
I use italics a lot this week.
A much more well-rounded crop of BSD links this week.
Started out with a short list, but I managed to find some extra links by Friday.
Imre Vadasz is working on full-offload scan support for wlan, imported from FreeBSD. That doesn’t change much from a user point of view, other that (I assume) reducing load and power usage a tiny amount. I’m reinforcing something most people don’t think about: there’s tiny computers inside your computer with their own firmware and processors, that you don’t directly control.
I get all the BSDs this week.
A somewhat short week this week, for BSD.
