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.
People which want to test the linuxulator part should first make sure a native FreeBSD application has no problem accessing the device.
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.
