I've made a presentation today at SUNCON'04 in Zurich, Switzerland on the new
things and changes in FreeBSD 5.3 Network Stack.  You can find it here:

It is fairly high-level and intended for server and system administrators as
well as developers.

If you write me emails please be aware that I only periodically look into my
inbox till Monday.  We are having fun and disucussing FreeBSD issues and new
developments with a couple of guys that are here too: phk, mblapp, mlaier,
pjd, and a couple more of whom I don't remember the login at the moment.

PS: Linux guys where pretty much floored that FreeBSD 5.3 can route 1Mpps and
they can't do much more than 100kpps. ;-)  Yes, way to go!

PPS: SUCON website and tracks can be found here:
