The PC-BSD team is pleased to announce the availability of the next PC-BSD quarterly package update, version 10.0.3!
This update includes a number of important bug-fixes, as well as newer packages and desktops. Packages such as Chromium 37.0.2062.94, Cinnamon 2.2.14, Lumina 0.6.2 and more. This release also includes a CD-sized ISO of TrueOS, for users who want to install a server without X. For more details and updating instructions, refer to the notes below.
We are already hard at work on the next major release of PC-BSD, 10.1 later this fall, which will include FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE under the hood. Users interested in following along with development should sign up for our Testing mailing list.

By popular demand, the source tree for the Lumina project has just been moved to its own repository within the main PC-BSD project tree on GitHub.
In addition to this, an official FreeBSD port for Lumina was just committed to the FreeBSD ports tree which uses the new repo.
By the way, here is a quick usage summary for those that are interested in how “light” Lumina 0.6.2 is on PC-BSD 10.0.3:
System: Netbook with a single 1.6GHz atom processor and 2GB of memory (Fresh installation of PC-BSD 10.0.3 with Lumina 0.6.2)
Usage: ~0.2–0.4% CPU and ~120MB active memory use (no apps running except an xterm with “top” after a couple minutes for the PC-BSD tray applications to start up and settle down)

Changes and fix between 4.0-BETA3 and 4.0-RC1 include:
- Xconfig from 3.5 was added back to system
- A script is added to do configuration on the first boot of the new intallation

This article by khubla.com shows us how to create Time Machine backups in FreeBSD 10 through netatalk3.
I usually work on a Macbook, and I use keyless ssh with a cron job to do nightly backups. It works very well. However, I decided to try backups with Time Machine, using my FreeBSD-10 server as the host.
The first step is to install netatalk3, and nss_mdnspkg install netatalk3 pkg install nss_mdns
