NorthEast LinuxFest will be held in Worcester, MA on March 17. Dru Lavigne will be giving a presentation on the upcoming 8.2 release and FreeNAS 8.0.4-RELEASE CDs will be given away at the FreeBSD booth in the expo area. Registration is free for this event and there will be an after-party at a local pub. Not a bad way to spend St. Patrick’s Day if you’re in the NorthEast.
FreeNAS 8.0.4-RELEASE and FreeNAS-8.0.4-multimedia are now available from the Sourceforge website. 8.0.4 is primarily a bug fix release, meaning that there will not be a published 8.0.4 version of the Users Guide. Instead, use the 8.0.3 Users Guide plus the 8.0.4 Release Notes (available on the download page).
On Saturday, March 3, in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia, Martin Wilke (FreeBSD Developer, Ports Management, Security Officer), will give a presentation about FreeBSD development and share his experience on how he became a FreeBSD Developer. FreeNAS DVDs will also be given away at this event.
The event will be held at Old Town White Coffee, Bangsar South from 14:00-17:00. You can RSVP on Facebook.
