TL;DR
I wrote a replacement for powerd, because its load rating is broken and I hate the fan noise that causes.
Setting of P-States (power states a.k.a. steppings) on FreeBSD is managed by powerd(8). It has been with us since 2005, a time when the Pentium-M single-core architecture was the cutting edge choice for notebooks and dual-cor...

Got questions about ESA's #CleanSpace  initiative? The ESA Clean Space team will answer questions via Twitter on Thursday, 7 April, from 14:00 to 15:00 GMT (16:00 to to 17:00 CEST). Use the hashtag #askESAcleanspace or tweet @ESAcleanspace directly. 

Reaching for the sky leaves footprints on the ground. Through its Clean Space initiative, ESA is pioneering an eco-friendly approach to space activities. On the ground, that means adopting greener industrial materials, processes and technologies. In space, it means preserving Earth’s orbital environment as a safe zone, free of debris.

 #FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE Announcement

   The FreeBSD Release Engineering Team is pleased to announce the    availability of FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE. This is the third release of the  stable/10 branch, which improves on the stability of FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE and introduces some new features.

   Some of the highlights:

     * The UEFI boot loader received several improvements: It now follows /boot/config and /boot.config files, multi-device boot support works and command line arguments are parsed. Additionally, its framebuffer driver has been enhanced with GOP (Graphics Output Protocol) and UGA (Universal Graphics Adapter) handling, allowing to set the current graphics mode on systems using one of these methods. Moreover, ZFS boot capability has been added to the UEFI boot loader, including support for multiple ZFS Boot Environments (BEs), e. g. those provided by sysutils/beadm.

     * The CAM Target Layer ctl(4) now supports High Availability setups.

     * The Linux(R) compatibility layer has been substantially improved and now is capable of running 64-bit applications on amd64 (x86_64), 1:1 threading, VDSO and subset of the epoll(7) family sufficient for the majority of programs.

     * The em(4) and igb(4) drivers have been updated to version 7.6.1 and 2.5.3 respectively. Among others, this brings support for        i219/i219(2)/i219(3) hardware found with Intel(R) Skylake generation and newer chipsets.

     * The isp(4) driver has been updated and improved: It now also supports 16 Gbps Fibre Channel adapters, has improved target mode support and completed Multi-ID (NPIV) functionality.

     * The ixgbe(4) driver has been updated to Intel(R) FreeBSD Networking Group version 3.1.13-k and support for X552 and X550T was added.

     * The initial implementation of reroot support has has been added to the reboot(8) utility, allowing the root file system to be mounted
       from a temporary source file system without requiring a full system reboot.

     * The bsdinstall(8) utility has been updated to allow for creating
       root-on-ZFS installations on UEFI-based systems in automatic mode.

     * The ifconfig(8) utility now reports SFP/SFP+ optics module data when the -v flag is specified and a NIC driver provides such information, i. e. for cxgbe(4), ixgbe(4), mlx5en(4) and sfxge(4).

     * The jail(8) utility has been updated to include a new flag, -l, which ensures a clean environment in the target jail. Additionally, jail(8) now runs a shell within the target jail when no command was given.

     * The mkimg(1) utility has been updated to support NTFS file systems in both GPT and MBR partitioning schemes.

     * The xz(1) utility has been updated to version 5.2.2, which provides support for multi-threaded compression.

     * GNOME has been updated to version 3.16.2.

     * TeXLive has been updated to TL2015.

     * Xorg-Server has been updated to version 1.17.4.

     * And much more ...

   For a complete list of new features and known problems, please see the online release notes and errata list, available at:

     * https://www.FreeBSD.org/releases/10.3R/relnotes.html

The release notes for FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE contain a summary of the changes made to the FreeBSD base system on the 10.3-STABLE development line. This document lists applicable security advisories that were issued since the last release, as well as significant changes to the FreeBSD kernel and userland. Some brief remarks on upgrading are also presented.

A quick note for everyone: this weekend, something which may well be the mother of all leak stories broke. The entire paperwork of Mossack Fonseca, a legal firm which is one of the world's big players in hiding money offshore, from its founding in 1975 to the present, leaked, and over the past year a consortium of journalists from around the world have been studying it. The first round of articles came out this weekend, revealing data about 14,153 clients, with activities ranging from the perfectly legitimate towards the incredibly shady -- with a clear slant towards the latter.

This list has included 12 current or former heads of state, 61 close associates of heads of state (especially Putin's), 128 other current or former public officials, 29 people on the Forbes 500 list, and over 200 countries. 

Notably absent from the list have been any significant names from the US. However, this is apparently because those stories are taking a few more days to wrap: we've heard from reliable sources that there are going to be some really interesting revelations in the immediate future.

Below is a link to the International Center for Investigative Journalism's summary of what's become known as the Panama Papers. (The ICIJ coordinated this massive research and journalism effort) Another good intro is Fusion's set of stories, which are quite clear and well-written: http://interactive.fusion.net/dirty-little-secrets/index.html 

Expect some seriously interesting things in the near future.

Let's wait for the official announcement though...

There's no official announcement yet, but it's available from here:

NB. unless officially announced, there's always a chance it may get pulled.
