I've just read that ZFS v15 was commited to FreeBSD-HEAD with 2 months before MFC to 8-STABLE (http://ivoras.sharanet.org/blog/tree/2010-07-13.all-welcome-zfs-v15-in-freebsd.html). It's really good news: we'll have faster, more stable ZFS version and it will support user quotas (lack of quotas was one of the things that prevented us from deploying it on our file server)... Great thanks to Martin for his work!
It's not enough - another piece of good news pc-sysinstall now supports packages. What does it mean? As I understand, this means one more step in side of easy binary package management in FreeBSD (http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=148584).
And last one. I've just read that NASA is going to use PostgreSQL to store data for quazy realtime monitoring system of Space Station (http://www.spinics.net/lists/pgsql/msg112022.html). I'm happy for PostgreSQL.
