Announcing the release of NetBSD 2.0
@ :: News ::     Dec 09 2010, 18:34 (UTC+0)
The NetBSD Project is pleased to announce that release 2.0 of the NetBSD operating system is now available.

About NetBSD 2.0

NetBSD is widely known as the most portable operating system in the world. It currently supports fifty four different system architectures, all from a single source tree, and is always being ported to more.

NetBSD 2.0 continues our long tradition with major improvements in file system and memory management performance, major security enhancements, and support for many new platforms and peripherals.

The addition of a native threads implementation for all platforms and symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) on i386 and other popular platforms were long-standing goals for NetBSD 2.0. Both of these goals have now been met - SMP support has been added for i386, Sparc, and PowerPC, and the SMP support on Alpha and Vax has been improved.

Please read below for more achievements in NetBSD 2.0!

Ghost for Unix (g4u) Version 2.0 released
   Dec 07 2010, 19:57 (UTC+0)
I'm happy to announce the release of g4u version 2.0 today. g4u ("ghost for unix") is a NetBSD-based bootfloppy/CD-ROM that allows easy cloning of PC harddisks to deploy a common setup on a number of PCs using FTP. The floppy/CD offers two functions. The first is to upload the compressed image of a local harddisk to a FTP server, the other is to restore that image via FTP, uncompress it and write it back to disk. Network configuration is fetched via DHCP. As the harddisk is processed as a image, any filesystem and operating system can be deployed using g4u. Easy cloning of local disks as well as partitions is also supported.

soup4you2 writes: guil (pronounced sgweel) is built by network security analysts for network security analysts. Sguil's main component is an intuitive GUI that provides realtime events from snort/barnyard. It also includes other components which facilitate the practice of Network Security Monitoring and event driven analysis of IDS alerts. The sguil client is written in tcl/tk and can be run on any operating system that supports tcl/tk (including Linux, *BSD, Solaris, MacOS, and Win32)

Changes are:
* Split code into a main sguild file and libs in a ./libs subdir
NOTE new sguild.conf variable for the lib dir location -bamm

The only element in the Universe more plentiful than Hydrogen is stupidity.

The other champion
It is impossible to conceive
But they are not without torments
Of what use was it all
Great poet, and good man
Spensers picture
Rodomont, King of Algiers
Though the lady seemed
The monk, overhearing these observations
On the other hand, the poor disconsolate
The fierce  took

Thrice, and four times
Now it happened that this was
This was the final stroke
"These," thought he, "are no tears that
On the ground Orlando threw himself
Neither of them knew him
Ovid is brisker and more obviously
When the hippogriff loosened
Astolfo tied the hippogriff
In the middle of this lonely
The mortal visitant was amazed
There he beheld 
You are not to take for granted

The Duke of Albany
While this horrible story
But before she begins
Our intercourse continued
I did all that he desired
Meantime  beginning
Ariodante put up his sword
I need not tell you what the king
Fast and eagerly the Paladin rode
