The FreeBSD Foundation negotiated a joint development agreement with Google, Inc. to sponsor FreeBSD developer Joseph Koshy to improve FreeBSD’s HWPMC implementation, including adding stacktrace support, and a donation of SMP hardware for future SMP scalability work. We greatly appreciate Google’s support for this project, which will facilitate performance measurement and optimization of both the FreeBSD operating system and applications running on it. This project has been successfully completed!

The Foundation was proud to be a Gold Sponsor of BSDCan 2007. We also provided four travel grants to FreeBSD developers. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth and gave a donation. We raised over $1600 in donations! We would also like to thank No Starch Press for donating 10 copies of the book “Building BSD Rootkits”. We were able to provide these books for donations of $30 or more.

The FreeBSD Foundation added Paul Saab to its board of directors. Paul has been actively involved in the project since 2000.

Would you like to have a link to your website on our donor page? We now will include your link with a $5000 or more donation to the foundation. Your logo will be included for donations of $10,000 or more. Click here for more details.
