@all who have replied
The new commands to build from source are no longer svn/svn lite
we now need to use git.
I have a working 12.2-RELEASE-amd64-p4 machine fully updated.
I have nuked the installation and installed from media 13.0-BETA4 and
it is indeed faster, snappier and working well.
After some testing. I have found that
icedtea-web java plugin that should open Java Web Start
does not open an online gradebook that I need to use. This used to
work and does not anymore. This also does not work on
FreeBSD-12.0-RELEASE-amd64-p4 fully updated. I do not know why, and
how to troubleshoot it :(
Thanks 4 your help/advice
