The FreeBSD Project again received many high quality applications from students participating in Google’s Summer of Code program. This year 18 student proposals to work with the FreeBSD Project were accepted as part of this program. For those with projects that were not accepted this year, we’d like to note that the FreeBSD Project is always willing to help mentor students so they can learn more about operating system development through our normal community mailing lists and development forums.
The FreeBSD 8.1 code freeze is scheduled for May 24th. The beta will be publicly available on May 28th. The more testing that can be done by the community, the more bugs that can be worked out before the release.
The freebsd-update application is a great tool for upgrading quickly. It’s quite easy to use, too.
