The FreeBSD project has published a new status report which covers the past three months of work and progress in the project's infrastructure and operating system. A few of the highlights include OpenSSL 3 being imported into the base operating system which provides a major upgrade over OpenSSL 1.1. There are also plans to introduce BATMAN support in FreeBSD 14: "BATMAN (Better Approach to Mobile Ad-hoc Networking), as developed and used by the Freifunk project, is a routing protocol for (primarily wireless) multi-hop ad-hoc networks. Freifunk is a German initiative to build an open Wi-Fi network at city-scale, based on the principles of net-neutrality. BATMAN’s motive is to be a completely decentralized protocol; no one node in the network knows or has to care about the topology of the whole network. Support for this protocol is provided by the batman-adv kernel module on Linux, and this project aims to bring that to FreeBSD. This includes the kernel module itself, but also userland networking libraries and tools necessary to create BATMAN networks." The status report offers further details.
