FreeBSD Foundation 2011 fund-raising a success

The FreeBSD Foundation announced on its Facebook page that it has raised $426,292, surpassing the $400,000 goal. This is even without the cheques they have received. Great result.

As you will know, the Foundation uses these donations to promote and protect FreeBSD, as well as funding FreeBSD related projects.

Two newly projects for 2012 announced on 31 December are:

  • auditdistd project (Pawel Jakub Dawidek)
  • IPv6 Performance Analysis project (Bjoern Zeeb)

I’m sure we’ll see more announcements this year about new projects.
