iXsystems releases PC-BSD 7.1 “Galileo Edition”

pcbsd-galileo-boxThe PC-BSD Team announced last week the availability of PC-BSD 7.1 - Galileo Edition. 

I was on holiday, hence the late announcement here.

Version 7.1 contains a number of enhancements, improvements and bugfixes from the 7.0 series. 

  • FreeBSD 7.2-Pre
  • KDE 4.2.2
  • The new KDE 4 printer applet enables users to easily add and manage printers and print jobs without using the CUPS web interface.
  • The Add / Remove Programs tool and the Update Manager have been consolidated into “Software & Updates.”
  • The Updater Tray has been modified into a small tray-only applet that shows users when updates are available. This is far less taxing on the CPU than its previous versions.
  • FreeBSD ports and packages can now be installed in a clean localbase by utilizing the “runports” command.
  • Greater stability for Flash 9 allows users to get higher quality from Flash sites such as Hulu and Youtube.
  • Enhancements have been made to PC-BSD’s System Installer, including upgrade functionality for those who wish to upgrade / repair PC-BSD while preserving their user data.
  • Fixes have been made to bugs in the Wi-Fi and Networking tools, as well as to previous Linux Emulation problems.
