Why was the website so slow for so long?

The cause of the slowdown was a change to the ZFS dataset. In conjunction with the database server, very little caching was being done. This combination resulted in increased disk I/O as the system churned through the database. Details in the blog post which outlines the various things which changed. Many graphs.

Welcome XFCE 4.14 to the FreeBSD ports tree

- This XFCE release uses almost exclusively gtk3, so the USES=xfce
  now defaults to gtk3
- Make x11-themes/gtk-xfce-engine an optional dependency(disabled
  by default), it only supports gtk2, so would leave miost of this
  XFCE version unthemed.
- Add Greybird as an optional and enabled dependency as a modern
  theme supporting both GTK versions and all other XFCE parts
- The xfce4-vala port is deprecated and removed. The VALA bindings
  are available in the library ports using the GIR and VAPI options
  (on by default)
- Fixed various missing library and portlint warnings (portmgr fixit
- Default Display Manager changed to lightdm (Thanks to woodsb02

Add MENULIBRE option enabled by default to xfce4-goodies.

Adds the x11/menulibre to the component installed by the metaport.
It's a utility to edit Desktop environment application menus. If
present xfce allows calling it as it's default menu editor.

Add x11/xfce4-goodies: Meta-port for ports from the Xfce4 Goodies Project

This meta-port gathers together each of the ports from the Xfce4 Goodies
Project and allows them to be easily installed to create a functional
desktop environment.

Default options include those which do not bring in too many additional
dependencies, and are generally recommended for use on a modern Xfce

It also includes ports which are not officially part of the Xfce4
Goodies Project (can not be found at,
but are generally recommended for use with Xfce4 on FreeBSD.

This goal of this meta-port is to help users get started with Xfce by:
1. Easily installing a sensible list of programs with a single command
2. Find new programs they may be interested in, by reviewing the list
   of disabled by default options in the port
3. Show people which programs are not recommended for use by the FreeBSD
   Xfce team (such as obsolete applications)
