BSDNow 251 has one of the more fun titles ever, and goes into HAMMER encryption, BSDCan details, and a number of other things that make for good BSD news.
I am typing BSDXXX phrases a lot, it seems. BSDNow 250 goes over the just-finished BSDCan. There’s a ton of events, so get reading/listening.
BSDNow 249 is covering a really wide range of topics including an uncommon amount of NetBSD, so I’m going to do the easy thing and repeat the summary: “OpenZFS and DTrace updates in NetBSD, NetBSD network security stack audit, Performance of MySQL on ZFS, OpenSMTP results from p2k18, legacy Windows backup to FreeNAS, ZFS block size importance, and NetBSD as router on a stick.”
BSDNow 248 has an interview with Patrick Mooney, talking about bhyve, along with the usual news summaries.
BSDNow 247 leads with a report on Mitchell Horne working for the FreeBSD Foundation (actually in the office) as an intern. It’s an interesting contrast to the all-online model for most committers. There’s plenty more links.
BSDNow 246’s title is talking about CVE-2018-8897, which was (unlike the original Spectre/Meltdown) responsibly disclosed to many different operating system vendors, including the BSDs. As a result, fixes arrived a lot faster… seems like a good idea. No interview in this episode, but as always there’s other topics explored.
Hey, another terse title, and I didn’t even write it! This BSDNow episode talks about the recent ZFS conference. It’s interesting to think there can be a meetup about a file system that isn’t really held to a vendor at this point. There ‘s a number of other articles, too – I’m just a bit late noting it.
I managed to miss posting about BSDNow 244, “C is a Lie”. That provocative title is about how C isn’t a low-level language, not that it doesn’t work. Among other things, this week has new-to-me history about the Larrabee architecture, which I only have heard about indirectly.
BSDNow episode 243 has no interview but a bunch of release news. I like seeing a note from Dag-Erling Smørgrav about 2 decades as a committer. I also consider aarch64 support in NetBSD interesting.

BSDNow 242 has no interview and the normal wide range of topics: TrueOS, F-Stack, jails, SmartOS, and most interesting to me, open source business model development with iXSystems.
This week’s BSDNow interviews Kevin Bowling of Greenlight Networks, plus lots of filesystem conversation.
This week’s BSDNow has an intriguing title, and the show covers a number of hardware and software changes – no interview.
BSDNow 239 does not have an interview, but it does talk about using OpenBSD to prevent unwanted traffic out to the internet, plus a ‘poetic license’.
This week’s BSDNow includes an interview with Ryan Zezeski of Illumos, plus lots of other topics, including more on NomadBSD and Lumina.
Late, odd-day post cause it wasn’t up like normal on Thursday: BSDNow 237 has no interview but a number of recent news items, including details on the Pale Moon / OpenBSD port issues that I was not aware of until now.
BSDNow 236 has a very eclectic range of items this week, including talk about pledge, cd, Bitcoin, Lua, Salt, SMTP, and so on. No interview, but I’m not sure how you’d even fit that in.
BSDNow 234 is up, and has an interview with Benno Rice of FreeBSD. There’s also chatter about jails, Summer of Code, FreeBSD’s new Code of Conduct, libhijack, and so on.
This week’s BSDNow has a ZFS explainer about what the theoretical maximums on storage could be, plus a whole lotta DTrace. (Needed a Sun reference in their title this week.)
