1<p>I can&#8217;t keep up with all the things to post.  I desperately want to clear my inbox, so here&#8217;s a week&#8217;s worth of posts all smushed together.  Enjoy!</p>
2<ul>
3<li>Naoya Sugioka&#8217;s <a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2010-01/msg00072.html">tmpfs work</a> is almost ready to go.</li>
4<li>Francois Tigeot is <a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2010-02/msg00001.html">looking to find supported RAID hardware</a> for DragonFly; the LSI1068e <a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2010-02/msg00002.html">isn&#8217;t useable</a>.  Freddie Cash listed a number of <a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2010-02/msg00006.html">different and fully supported cards</a>, and Francois listed some other <a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2010-02/msg00027.html">potential choices</a>.</li>
5<li>While talking about hardware, Steve O&#8217;Hara-Smith <a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2010-02/msg00022.html">reported excellent results</a> with a particular Atom 330-based board and DragonFly.</li>
6<li>Stathis Kamperis has <a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/commits/2010-02/msg00002.html">added to &#8216;hammer snapls&#8217; output</a>; an example is in <a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/submit/2010-02/msg00000.html">his submit@message</a>.</li>
7<li>The 2.6 release of DragonFly, scheduled for March, will have version 4 of HAMMER.  2.4 has version 2.  Upgrading from version 2 to 4 can happen in place, live, and only needs to happen once per volume, not per PFS.  That&#8217;s about as easy as it gets.  <a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/users/2010-02/msg00015.html">More details are available</a>.</li>
8<li>The <a href="http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/mailarchive/commits/2010-02/msg00005.html">default sshd config has been updated</a>; this shouldn&#8217;t affect your normal operations unless you&#8217;re using one of the mentioned options.</li>
