The FreeBSD Foundation has just released their semi-annual newsletter. As usual, it features a letter from the President, as well as updates for the annual fundraiser, development projects, and conferences.
Welcome to our July 2014 Semi-Annual Newsletter!
As we reach the middle of 2014, we want to take the opportunity to highlight what we’ve accomplished so far this year to help support the FreeBSD Project and community.
One of the most exciting projects we started this year was the publication of the online FreeBSD Journal. We are not only funding this magazine, with hopes of it being self-supported through subscriptions and ads, but we also have board members on the editorial staff. So far, we’ve received a large amount of positive feedback, and look forward to making both the Journal and subscription process even better.
In this newsletter, you’ll have a chance to read more about the Journal; check out summaries from the conferences and summits we sponsored; take a look at current Foundation funded development projects and fundraising efforts; and review our latest financial reports. Lastly, as usual, our president and founder, Justin Gibbs, wrote the most inspiring letter yet. In fact after reading his letter, I was motivated to come up with my own elevator pitch instead of the usual “FreeBSD is like Linux, only better!” Working with Justin, our board members and staff, and the entire FreeBSD community continually humbles me. It’s inspiring to know there are so many passionate FreeBSD people out there, helping to make this the most reliable, innovative, stable, secure, and well-loved operating system available.
Now, sit back, get a cup of coffee or tea, and take a moment to read our newsletter.
