I merged the v4l translation layer into the linuxulator of 8–stable. As in –current, this just means that linux apps (like Skype) can now use FreeBSD native devices which conform to the v4l ABI. The port multimedia/webcamd provides access to some webcams (or DVB hardware) via the v4l ABI.
I got notified that my blog was not accessible for a while. Seems that at least recent firefox versions somehow changed their behavior in what is send in the HTTP-header. This caused an Apache RedirectMatch rule to trigger, which denies access to some parts of the blog for some users.
The WP-login, WP–dashboard, and logged-in users where not affected by this, so if you have some custom rules which deny access to your blog, make sure you make a test of your blog when logged-out.
