This year’s Google Summer of Code has seven FreeBSD projects consisting of ports build process, VNET in FreeBSD jails, virtual memory compression, firewall test suite, kernel sanitizers, ping, and bhyve. Shout out to the mentors who are supporting these young student developers, good luck!

FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for modern server, desktop, and embedded computer platforms. FreeBSD provides advanced networking, impressive security features, and world class performance, and is used by some of the world’s busiest web sites and most pervasive embedded networking and storage devices. From providing the foundation to the PlayStation 4 operating system, to Juniper’s routers making up the backbone of the Internet, to being at the core of Apple’s OSX and powering the servers Netflix use to stream terabits of video every second, chances are you are using FreeBSD right now without even realizing it.
