-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I have just completed the long awaited, first 64bit build of the
project hosted here:
You may download the ISO file immediately using the downloads page:
This release is based on the latest XFCE desktop and includes a wide
of desktop-related packages, like OpenOffice, abiword, gnumeric,
gimp, inkscape, evince and so on. The base system is 8.0-RELEASE-p1 which
includes the latest security fixes.
Make sure to read the README file:
as it contains important information on installation and esp. a few steps
that are required for a successful install. In particular note:
* The 'doc' set (FreeBSD documentation) is not included in this
to problems in the related package builds. We will include them in
next releases when the problem is resolved.
* The 'libchek-0.9.8' will have to be selected manually in the package
selection dialog. This seems to be a problem with the INDEX file.
* Installing linux related packages during initial setup needs a few more
steps. This is due to differences in sysinstall between 7.X and 8.0
A detailed explanation is provided in the README file.
As always, please report any problems, success stories, comments and
criticisms to manolis at FreeBSD.org
