DesktopBSD 1.6RC2 is now available.
We want to wait with the official announcement until most mirrors have catched up (probably Monday or Tuesday), but you can already obtain it here:
Via BitTorrent (please seed): ftp://ftp.desktopbsd.net/pub/DesktopBSD/Torrents/1.6/DesktopBSD-1.6RC2-i386-CD.iso.torrent
From these already synchronized mirrors:
Primary changes since 1.6RC1:
Improved video detection
No more annoying package database messages when an installation/upgrade failed
Upgrading from 1.0 should work fine now (please test – and don’t forget to backup your data!)
cups problems are hopefully gone
Another CD with KDE language packages will follow within the next few days.
Unfortunately, importing Xorg 7.2 into the FreeBSD ports tree seems to take longer than expected, so it is not included in this release and there will be at least one other release candidate using it before the final 1.6 release comes out.
Translators: Some changes required adding or modifying phrases. Please update your SVN repository for updated .ts files. (I will write another notice to the doc@ mailing list about this)
If you have any questions, objections or suggestions, please let me know.
So if anyone’s using DBSD, feel free to grab the RC2 and give feedback here: http://desktopbsd.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1202 And if you torrent it, like I am, please seed it for your fellow kiwis.
