The FreeBSD Foundation has released their recap for the month of July. This edition includes development project updates focusing on security, HOPE XI and Texas Linuxfest conference summaries, and release engineering updates. In addition, they are kicking off the mid-year campaign for the Foundation fundraiser.

freebsd_foundationDear FreeBSD Community Member,

It’s hard to believe we’re halfway through 2016. Along with all of the summer fun, July is also the perfect opportunity to take a look at what we’ve accomplished so far and determine where we need to focus our efforts for the rest of the year. From increasing our presence at non-BSD events to funding new development projects, to making it easier to get started using FreeBSD, we’re definitely making progress towards our goals. However, our progress can only go as far as our funding allows. This is where you come in. We hope as you finish reading the latest update, you’ll take a minute to donate, and help us grow and improve the OS you love as much as we do.

FreeBSD Foundation July 2016 Update –

I’m pleased to announce the kickoff of our mid-year fundraising campaign! We are more than halfway through the year, but we’ve only raised $265,000 towards our goal of raising $1,250,000. We are reaching out to you, the FreeBSD community, to help us promote our work and to make a donation so we can continue supporting FreeBSD.
