Hey all,

After the successful release of 8.0, I am pleased to announce that I
have updated my little project here:

to provide an XFCE DVD based on the new release.

Here are the direct download links:

Checksum and signature files:

Make sure to read the README file:

as it contains important information on installation (there are some
differences in sysinstall between 7.X and 8.0)

Note: While the above files are i386 only, a 64bit version is also on
the works as I now have some suitable hardware available.
It will become available in 7-10 days.

Note this release includes the latest openoffice 3.1.1 as well as
abiword / gnumeric for those who prefer them. Gnash has been dropped
(linux flash plugin works very well now) and avant-window-navigator is
also included (but is untested). Latest versions of well known
packages (gimp, inkscape, evince, firefox35 etc) are included as well.
This is the same selection of packages as the ones included in the
version of the iso, but they are of course updated to the latest versions.
The documentation packages for all available languages are included on
the disc.

As always, please report any problems, success stories, comments and
criticisms to manolis at

Thanks and happy FreeBSDing!
