FreeBSD Foundation Project Proposals are now underway, as of the 27th. They do a good job engaging their community by asking for potential projects that should be submitted and evaluated to see if they deem worthy of inclusion in future development processes. If you are a FreeBSD user and have an opinion on potential functionality you feel should be used, submit your proposal.
FreeBSD Foundation had a great 2012, with a large amount of donations coming to cap off a busy year. At the moment, they are working on implementing the ability to boot FreeBSD in the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface boot environment (or UEFI).
