Summer convention season is coming; start scheduling!
I think I manage to link at least one story for every BSD type this week, or close to it.
I apologize for ending with a question.
This is one of those weeks where a bunch of release all tumble together by chance.
By the time you read this, I will have already been at my second job for 5 hours.
This time, this was all last-minute.
Has anyone been watching the AsiaBSDCon video? I have not been awake/unbusy at the right times.
I hope you have some time for reading this week.
Look at the ZFS discussions if you want to feel smug as a BSD user.
Keep an eye out for BSD user group meetings in your area – just because I didn’t note it doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.
Another week with plenty of links.
There’s a lot of convention links this week, which is mostly an accident. If any of them are near you, go! BSD conventions are always fun, in my experience.
There’s some DragonFly links I snuck in here because why not?
I had this built up well ahead of time.

I informally grouped by topic, cause it has proved an exceptionally rich week for BSD links.
This is the sort of BSD link week I like, with lots of range and depth.
Not even checking source commits this week; there’s already plenty of news.
There’s a lot of developer interviews lately.
Your cross-platform software of the week: Syncthing. Runs on all the BSDs. (Via discussion on EFNet #dragonflybsd)
Another good week for BSD releases and events.
