+    <p>As focused as we are on the present and what is happening
+      now, it is sometimes useful to take a reminder at where we have
+      come from, and where we are going.  This quarter, we had our
+      newest doc committer working to trace through the tangled
+      history of many utilities, and we also get a glimpse looking
+      forward at what may come in &os; 12.</p>
+    <p>Though 11.0-RELEASE was not finalized until after the period
+      covered in this report, we can still have some anticipatory
+      excitement for the features that will be coming in 12.0.  The
+      possibilities are tantalizing: a base system with no GPL
+      components, arm64 as a Tier-1 architecture, capsicum protection
+      for common utilities, and the CloudABI for custom software are
+      just a few.</p>
+    <p>The work of the present is no less exciting, with 11.0
+      making its way out just after the end of Q3, the new core
+      coming into its own, and much more that you'll have to read
+      to find out.</p>
