Still catching up on links.

Still running on extra links from previous weeks.  Usually it takes a larger convention to cause this sort of backlog.

In Other BSDs for 2018/09/15

Built almost entirely with overflow from more than a week ago.

I am having trouble keeping up with BSD news items.  This is a good problem to have.

In Other BSDs for 2018/09/01

Lots of event notices in here… Watch for what’s near you.

In Other BSDs for 2018/08/25

Still haven’t cleared my backlog of links…

 

In Other BSDs for 2018/08/18

Overflow from two weeks running, cause of travel.

In Other BSDs for 2018/08/11

Overflow that I couldn’t catch up to before last weekend’s In Other BSD’s posting time.  I try to always have these by 9 AM Eastern time Saturday.  (Same for Lazy Reading on Sunday)  I mentally imagine everyone sitting down with a drink and nothing else to do but click links, those mornings.  At least, I hope that’s what it is.

In Other BSDs for 2018/08/04

I have more to post but just plain couldn’t get it all pasted!

 

In Other BSDs for 2018/07/21

A few of the links are not directly BSD-ish, but related.

Some overflow, and thank goodness cause I don’t have a day without work this week.

In Other BSDs for 2018/07/07

Lots of NetBSD links this week relative to usual.

Update: how did I miss this?  PkgSrcCon 2018 is happening now in Berlin, and there’s a livestream.  (via)

In Other BSDs for 2018/06/23

Lots of announcements, lots of reading.  Note the first item listed is happening today.

In Other BSDs for 2018/06/16

Lots of different items, probably because of BSDCan.

CPU bug hardening added to DragonFly

Matthew Dillon’s added some patches to DragonFly related to securing floating point state, following similar work in OpenBSD.  There isn’t a reported catchy-name issue to match it, like Spectre/Meltdown – yet.

(If anyone has a good link to the similar OpenBSD commits, please share; I did not find them on a cursory search.)

Update: the fix is now in 5.2 and an update is recommended.
