OpenBSD developer Jacek Masiulaniec gets 14 minutes of airtime in the most recent BSDTalk podcast.
Sascha Wildner has added mandoc(1), an OpenBSD product. I like the HTML output. (I’ve said it before, come to think of it.)
The recent importation of tmux into OpenBSD 4.6’s base system has led to some interest; I haven’t used it directly but having a BSD-licensed session manager (if that is the right term) in the base DragonFly system would be nice.
Matthew Dillon has put together some new test machines, in preparation for porting the OpenBSD AHCI driver to DragonFly. Check his message if you are thinking about building a new system, as they appear to work well.
Undeadly has an brief, interesting article up, written by Mitja MuÅ¾eniÄ, describing the OpenBSD releasing process.Â Worthwhile reading if you are involved in any sort of release cycle.
Undeadly has an article noting that OpenBSD is getting in on the LiveCD game with BSDAnywhere.
Something interesting: graphs of the commit activity for some (all?) of the OpenBSD committers.Â (via ‘constant’ on #dragonflybsd)Â I’d like to do the same for DragonFly.Â Plus, GIANT DAEMON HEAD.
OnLAMP.com has a 3-page interview with various OpenBSD developers about the features in the newest release.Â The interview goes into interesting detail, and for relevance, some of the newer wireless drivers in DragonFly came from this code work.
Seen on KernelTrap, then OpenBSD Journal and then Slashdot: BSD support (specifically OpenBSD) hardware support is improving faster than Linux in some cases.
Apparently the Mozilla Foundation donated US$10K to OpenSSH.Â That’s good!Â They still need money, though.
Daemon News has an interview of OpenBSD’s Theo deRaadt, where he mentions DragonFly. The last response in the interview is also entertaining.
Here’s something interesting: there’s an installer for OpenBSD called “YaifO“, which requires only SSH to work – no keyboard or serial access needed. Of course, there’s no binary, no docs, and no way to do it on a multiboot system… but the concept’s neat.
