C2K7 - Full Speed Ahead

Contributed by merdely on from the hack-or-hack-not-there-is-no-try dept.

Hackathon 2007 is underway in Calgary. Among those hacking are deraadt, beck, krw, todd, ray, thib, drahn, art, tom, jdixon, robert, jcs, kettenis, claudio, reyk, naddy, cnst, rui , jason, ckuethe, mjc, jmc, dlg, tedu, gwk, pyr, uwe, grange, aanriot, niallo, mcbride, pedro, matthieu, mbalmer, mpf, grunk and ajacoutot. marco is expected on Monday. (I'm sure I missed at least somebody, but from where I'm sitting in MD, it's hard to see everyone)

So far, work has included faster TLB shootdown [more info], dynamic buffer cache, several ports updates, the beginning of a new network interface driver - che(4), xenocara improvements, opencvs work, usb macro cleanup, bio, mount_vnd, and general code and man page fixes. There have even been a lot of continued pkg_* tools updates with espie being there in spirit.

We've even seen the first pictures posted. [Edit: Better picture link]

Stay tuned to the commit logs (and undeadly) for more hackathon-goodness as it happens. I'm sure, as usual, we can expect big things!

    This deserves a post unto itself "double pf performance" As someone who supports several PF bridge configurations this is great news. This along with the work pyr@ is doing with hoststated and hoststatectl is awesome for people who use OpenBSD as enterprise firewalls.

    This must have been a satisfying moment -- "Maintaining a broken compatibility layer for a broken OS is not a productive activity for anyone. Bye bye COMPAT_NETBSD. ok tedu@, deraadt@, and many others in the hackathon room."

      Not really, it just contained some code that it was easier to remove than to try to fix.
