What's new with OpenBSD

Another year, another two releases for OpenBSD. Even for the best of us,
it can be difficult to keep track of all the development activity. This
talk highlights some of the big new things over the last year of
OpenBSD. Hopefully by the end of the talk you will have learned about
some new feature you didn't know about before.

Brian is a Ph.D. student in the Science and Technology Studies
department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He has been an OpenBSD
developer for a few years, spending most of his time in the ports tree.
One time he gave a talk at BSDCan with George. Ike was in attendance.

* Blacklist¹d: A NetBSD project by Christos Zoulas
