Quarterly Status Report

The FreeBSD Quarterly Status Report is available. The Foundation has the following section in the report:

The most exciting news to report is that we raised $426,000 through our fundraising efforts. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of the  FreeBSD community. We would like to thank everyone who made a  contribution to FreeBSD by either making a financial donation to the  foundation or volunteering on the Project.

We published our semi-annual newsletter in December. If you have not already done so, please take a moment to read this publication to find out how we supported the FreeBSD Project and community during the second half of 2011. There are also two great testimonials in the newsletter from TaxiMagic and the Apache Software Foundation.

The Foundation sponsored EuroBSDCon 2011 which was held in The  Netherlands, October 6-9. And, we sponsored six developers to attend  the conference. We sponsored the Bay Area Vendor Summit in November.  We  were represented at LISA '11, Dec 7-8 in Boston MA.

We are a proud sponsor of AsiaBSDCon 2012, which will be held in Tokyo,  Japan, March 22-25.

The Foundation funded the completed Feed-Forward Clock Synchronization Algorithms Project by the University of Melbourne. We approved two new projects at the beginning of 2012: analyzing the performance of FreeBSD's IPv6 stack by Bjoern Zeeb, and implementing the auditdistd daemon by Pawel Jakub Dawidek

We purchased more servers and other hardware for the FreeBSD co-location centers at Sentex, NYI, and ISC.

The work above, as well as many other tasks which we do for the FreeBSD Project, could not be done without donations. Please help us by making  a donation or asking your company to make a donation. We would be happy to send marketing literature to you or your company. Find out how to  make a donation at our donate page.
