DragonFly 4.4.3 released

The DragonFly 4.4.3 point release is out.  There’s a commit page listing the changes between 4.4.2 and 4.4.3.  Nobody will be surprised that there’s an OpenSSL update in there.
If you want a complete image, it’s available for download at your nearest mirror.  If you want to upgrade an existing install:
cd /usr; make src-update 
    (or  src-create-shallow if you don't already have source)
make buildworld && make buildkernel
make installkernel && make installworld
make upgrade


The p2k16 hackathon has begun

OpenBSD developers from around the world have just gathered in Nantes, France for the p2k16 hackathon. This event is technically a ports hackathon, but many non-porters have showed up too, which means you can expect a variety of different improvements. As an early example, [email protected] has just set sysmerge to run automatically during the upgrade process.
Head over to the hackathons page to see the artwork, and stay tuned to Undeadly for some post-hackathon reports.
