With two commits by Pratik Vyas (pd@), vmm(4) support for i386 host systems has been deleted (one can still run i386 guests under vmm on an amd64 host). The commit messages explain the reasoning behind this move:
The article provides a fine illustration of benefits of a bloat-free OS.
Thanks very much for the pointer, Ian.
Frederic Cambus (fcambus@) has just changed the default console font to Spleen, a font of his own creation:
CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: firstname.lastname@example.org 2019/01/09 04:23:32 Modified files: sys/dev/rasops : rasops.c sys/dev/wsfont : wsfont.c Log message: Enable Spleen in wsfont and modify the font selection logic at runtime in rasops(9) to allow selecting larger fonts when available.
Another major step forward just happened in
HTML output: paragraphs are now represented with real HTML
<p> elements, and a number of cases were fixed
in which mandoc used to generate output violating HTML syntax,
mostly related to macros and requests that control
in paragraphs of text.
Tom Smyth has another article (and video) for us:
Ingo Schwarze (schwarze@) delivered a great talk on documentation in EuroBSDCon 2018. Ingo's slides have been on-line since September at OpenBSD events.html under the EuroBSD Con 2018. Anyone who follows the mailing lists would see Ingo's consistent attention to detail. In this talk Ingo interestingly points out that application of consistent attention to detail in documentation, also improves the quality of the software that is being documented. Ingo shows that if a program is difficult to document, then it is likely due to serious flaws in the program's design.
This contribution comes directly from Tom Smyth:
Todd Mortimer (mortimier@) gives an excellent presentation on ROP Gadgets, and some of the mitigation strategies he has recently contributed to OpenBSD.
