The OpenBSD 5.6 theme song is out and unsurprisingly the it is the story of how bad things have to get before forking a project is the correct answer.

Bash vulnerability; check your dports
DragonFlyBSD Digest - 2014-09-25 00:55:14
There’s a new bash vulnerability that could be a problem for a network-facing machine that happens to use bash.  (See here for test.)  As a BSD user, you can feel somewhat smugly superior since the default shell is tcsh and therefore it may not affect you – unless you’ve installed it from dports. John Marino […]...

Fork of Systemd Leads To Lightweight Uselessd
Slashdot - 2014-09-21 15:28:00
An anonymous reader writes A boycott of systemd and other backlash around systemd's feature-creep has led to the creation of Uselessd, a new init daemon. Uselessd is a fork of systemd 208 that strips away functionality considered irrelevant to an init system like the systemd journal and udev. Uselessd also adds in functionality not accepted in upstream systemd like support for alternative C libraries (namely uClibc and musl) and it's even being ported to BSD.
