The FreeBSD Foundation has released their October newsletter consisting up development project updates such as building packages at scale (Proudiere), fundraising initiatives — Handshake has donated $100,000, release engineering updates highlighting FreeNAS 12.0, and recaps on EuroBSDcon and Grace Hopper conference. See the link below for the full letter.

Dear FreeBSD Community Member,
It’s so hard to believe that we’re already in the final quarter of 2018. The year is flying by(although it might be all of the time I’ve spent flying these past few weeks) and I’m very proud of all the work the FreeBSD Foundation team has accomplished this past month alone. Take a moment to check out the conference recaps, the Development Projects update on building packages at scale, and how you can make an impact on the Project over the next few months. Thank you for your continued support of FreeBSD.
We can’t do this without you!
Happy reading!
Deb
