History of FreeBSD - Part 3: Early Days of FreeBSD

In this third part of our series on the history of FreeBSD, we start tracing the early days of FreeBSD and the events that would eventually shape the project and the future of open source software.

A mesh VPN using OpenBSD and WireGuard

WireGuard is a new coming to OpenBSD 6.8 and it looks like a simple and efficient way to connect computers.
I own a few VPS (hello Vultr, hello that tend to be connected through filtered public services and/or SSH tunnels. And that’s neither efficient nor easy to manage. Here comes the wg(4) era where all those peers will communicate with a bit more privacy and ease of management.

News Roundup

Foundation Sponsors FreeBSD LLDB Improvements

With FreeBSD Foundation grant, Moritz Systems improved LLDB support for FreeBSD
The LLDB project builds on libraries provided by LLVM and Clang to provide a great modern debugger. It uses the Clang ASTs and the expression parser, LLVM JIT, LLVM disassembler, etc so that it provides an experience that “just works”. It is also blazing fast and more permissively licensed than GDB, the GNU Debugger.
LLDB is the default debugger in Xcode on macOS and supports debugging C, Objective-C, and C++ on the desktop and iOS devices and the simulator.

Host your Cryptpad web office suite with OpenBSD

In this article I will explain how to deploy your own Cryptpad instance with OpenBSD. Cryptpad is a web office suite featuring easy real time collaboration on documents. Cryptpad is written in JavaScript and the daemon acts as a web server.
