The future of the DesktopBSD project

desktopbsd logo 100x100A few months ago we were wondering what was happening with DesktopBSD (DesktopBSD; what’s happened). Peter Hofer, the founder of the project, has now put an update on the DBSD Forums:

Still, as some may have noticed, I have been able to work on some smaller improvements within the last few months. I now have the impression that everything is in order for a release 1.7, also considering that FreeBSD 7.2 has been released this week and should make a stable base system.

Therefore, I would like to release 1.7 as soon as I have some time on my hands. I would appreciate any comments on the recent snapshots (both i386 and amd64) from May 2nd. You can get them from here, as always:

ftp://ftp.desktopbsd.net/pub/DesktopBSD/Snapshots/
ftp://ftp.freepark.org/pub/DesktopBSD/snapshots/

Please understand that there is no room for larger changes such as KDE 4, new features or major bugfixes (unless critical).

Many thanks to Fernando for emailing this story.
