DragonFlyBSD 5.0 released
OSNews - October 16, 2017, 9:14 pm UTC

DragonFlyBSD 5.0 is the first release with preliminary boot support for HAMMER2, the project's new filesystem.
Preliminary HAMMER2 support has been released into the wild as-of the 5.0 release. This support is considered EXPERIMENTAL and should generally not yet be used for production machines and important data. The boot loader will support both UFS and HAMMER2 /boot. The installer will still use a UFS /boot even for a HAMMER2 installation because the /boot partition is typically very small and HAMMER2, like HAMMER1, does not instantly free space when files are deleted or replaced.

Binary Updates Now for the Latest Release Only

We intend to only build syspatches for one release in the future.
Errata patches will continue to be generated for 2 releases.

The reasoning is syspatch on 2 architectures for 2 releases requires 4
machines, and therefore twice the handholding. It seems better to keep
the time available to start doing syspatches for more architectures.

This can be seen with the latest TCB errata, for which there are patches for
versions 6.1 and
6.2,
but a binary update only for
6.2.

BSDNow 215: Turning FreeBSD up to 100 Gbps
DragonFlyBSD Digest - October 13, 2017, 3:30 am UTC
There’s no in-reference in this week’s BSDNow, but I think they already did the “it goes to 11” reference.  Among other news items, they’ve caught ClonOS, which I did not know about.

BSDNow 214: The history of man, kind
DragonFlyBSD Digest - October 6, 2017, 12:45 am UTC
BSDNow 214 has no interview, but does get into a convention report and a number of other topics, including the history of man pages.  Is there a help format that has lasted as long as man pages?  I don’t think so.
