Back by popular demand, we’re again sharing a story from someone involved in FreeBSD with our Faces of FreeBSD series. It may be a story from someone who’s received funding from us to work on development projects, run conferences, travel to conferences, or advocate for FreeBSD. Or, it may be from someone who gives back to FreeBSD financially or in another way. Regardless, it is always from someone who is making a positive difference in the FreeBSD world.
Released a week ago as the first maintenance build in the 2.3 stable series, pfSense 2.3.1 received its first update, bringing a patch for a major security issue in the Web GUI, as well as seven other bug fixes.
pfSense 2.3.1 was a major point release of the FreeBSD-based network firewall distribution that introduced over 100 changes, but pfSense 2.3 brought a new pkg system that lets the project's maintainers update only individual parts of the system.
You’ve probably played SuperTux in the past – it’s been around for a while. In your distro’s repository, you’ll have 0.1.3, the last stable release, dating from 2005. Development on the unstable 3.n branch has been going along mostly unremarked for more than a decade, and now a new stable release, 0.4, bursts onto the scene!
Sweden should bolster its competence on the use of open source and open standards in public administrations, a study for the country’s Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation recommends. Public administrations must also be required to consider switching to free and open source alternatives, when procuring ICT solutions, and justify why they continue to use proprietary software.
Cantarell is the default font in Fedora Workstation. It comes courtesy of the GNOME desktop community, which designed and chose Cantarell. Recently the maintainers of Canatrell have done a great deal of work on the typeface to improve readability and appearance. There are now two maintainers, Jakub Steiner and Nikolaus Waxweiler, who both contribute to the GNOME desktop environment as well as Cantarell.
I was playing around with piwik earlier (a free analytics software for websites) and it seems like NetworkManager was blocking the tracker. When I switched on my bitmask VPN I was able to get a hit on the tracker. I read somewhere that NetworkManager blocks tracking on wireless networks but now I can't find the article. Can anybody else confirm and provide source of information?submitted by /u/XavierNite

Hey peeps so I am working on a project for a restaurant I am working with. Instead of using a sign they went with a digital menu that is going to use a TV as a display.
What I am looking to make is a script that displays a static image after boot. So pretty much Boot > Then Image. I need to make it automated so that when the Raspberry Pi/TV are turned on in the morning the Pi will boot and go straight to that image.
Anywhere I should start or anyone know how to do this?submitted by /u/BreakDancingNazi
