BSD and Darwin derivatives Fans of DragonFly BSD will be getting their Christmas present late this year, and plans for 1.5 have been announced. MP safe networking code, the long awaited cache coherency management system, and a port of Sun's ZFS. Read here for more. Update: Refresh, empty cache, whatever, and check the shiny new beastie icon! And there was much rejoicing. Can we now please discuss DragonFly BSD?

Maybe someone can clarify for me, but the OpenSolaris CDDL doesn't seem to be compatible with the revised BSD license under which DragonFly is released. Maybe I'm missing something?

You are.

1) CDDL is a file based license, not everything under DragonFly is under a "different" BSD license.

2) The DragonFly license is file based too.

3) Matt is no stranger to licensing I am fully confident that he knows what he's doing.

4) It is my personal belief that even the modified DragonFly BSD license could be considered compatible since again CDDL is a file based license...
