manolis at FreeBSD.org

I have just completed the second 8.0-RELEASE based build of the 'Custom
releases' project hosted here:
This time, both 32 and 64 bit isos are offered, both based on
8.0-RELEASE-p2 and using packages from the same ports tree.
>From this point on I will try to simultaneously release 32 and 64 bit
You may download the ISO files 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
8.0-RELEASE-p2 which includes the latest security fixes.
Make sure to read the README relevant to the iso you are downloading (32
or 64bit) as it contains important information on installation. In
* The 'doc' set (FreeBSD documentation) is now once again included.
Just select the language(s) of your choice to install.
* The problem with 'libcheck-0.9.8' in the previous release has been
* 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 releases. 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
