NOTES This episode of BSDNow is brought to you by Tarsnap ( Headlines Allen K. Briggs Memorial Scholarship ( Allen Briggs was one of the earliest members of the NetBSD community, pursuing his interest in macBSD, and moving to become a NetBSD developer when the two projects merged. Allen was known for his quiet and relaxed manner, and always brought a keen wisdom with him; allied with his acute technical expertise, he was one of the most valued members of the NetBSD community. The Allen K. Briggs Memorial Scholarship is an endowment to provide scholarships in perpetuity for summer programs at the North Carolina School of Science & Math, which Allen considered to be a place that fundamentally shaped him as a person. We would love to invite Allen's friends and colleagues from the BSD community to donate to this cause so that we can provide more scholarships to students with financial need each year. We are approximately halfway to our goal of $50K with aspirations to exceed that target and fund additional scholarships. Toward an automated tracking of OpenBSD ports contributions ( A first step for the CI service would be to create a database of diffs sent to ports. This would allow people to track what has been sent and not yet committed and what the state of the contribution is (build/don’t build, apply/don’t apply). News Roundup Trying OpenZFS 2 on FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE ( OpenZFS 2 is a huge achievement, and makes me bullish about the long term prospects for the world’s most trustworthy and nicest to use storage system. You can even use try it today on FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE, though I recommend tracking -CURRENT for these sorts of features. OpenBSD on TECLAST F7 Plus ( I got myself a TECLAST F7 Plus laptop. It comes preinstalled with Windows 10 but I planned to use it as my daily driver. So I installed OpenBSD 6.8 on it. Multi-volume support in HAMMER2 ( commit ( > This commit adds initial multi-volumes support for HAMMER2. Maximum supported volumes is 64. The feature and implementation is similar to multi-volumes support in HAMMER1. *** Beastie Bits FreeBSD Last SVN Commit ( FreeBSD First git Commit ( Introducing OpenZFS 2.0 Webinar - Jan 20th @ noon Eastern / 17:00 UTC.
