I continue to watch for tools to keep BSD systems up-to-date. I learned of a new application for OpenBSD called Tepatche. The author wrote this article for next month's Sys Admin magazine. He also mentions the openbechede package management project.
Incidentally, Colin Percival reports he's attained the $1000 mark needed to buy a new box to provide freebsd-update binary updates. Hopefully we'll see them available for the 5.X tree soon.
While poking around Amazon.com I found a new BSD book will be published in the spring: FreeBSD and OpenBSD Security Solutions.
