Call for articles - and some from FreeX 1/2009
is always a good place to mention articles where
NetBSD is mentioned in print news, including technical
articles and introductory texts. Feel free to let www@
know about any articles that you find (in whatever language).
For today, there are a few German language
articles in the 1/2009 issue of the german FreeX
- Not every software major release has a noteworthy list of features.
This is different for the NetBSD 5 release - not only does it include
a number of security-relevant changes, but there are substantial changes
in the kernel.
Read more in Markus Illenseer's article.
- File systems in user space promise to connect kernel and applications,
and the boundaries between data, files and file systems start to vanish.
NetBSD offers an implementation for file systems in user space since 2005,
and in the mean time it has reched full source code compatibility to the
FUSE standard. The article also contains an interview with Alistair
Crooks, developer of NetBSD's user space-based iSCSI implementation.
Read more in Ulrich Habel's article.
- Not a full article, but a useful entry from the "Tips & Tricks"
section, there's one on quick creation of a chroot using
mksandbox from NetBSD's new bulk build framework.
