Hey all,

After last week's release of the first 64bit XFCE custom FreeBSD
8.1-RELEASE, I am pleased to announce
the 32bit version is now also available at:

You may download the ISO file immediately using the downloads page:

This release is based on the latest XFCE desktop and includes a wide
variety of desktop-related packages, like OpenOffice, abiword, gnumeric,
firefox35, gimp, inkscape, evince and so on. The base system is
8.1-RELEASE. A few other small window managers are included like
windowmaker, fluxbox and icewm.

Make sure to read the README file before installation.

Also note that installing linux related packages during initial setup
needs a few more  steps. This is due to differences in sysinstall
between 7.X and
8.X releases. A detailed explanation is provided in the README file.

As always, please report any problems, success stories, comments and
criticisms to manolis at
Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (Darwin)
