The PC-BSD Team is proud to announce the immediate availability of 
PC-BSD 7.1 <http://www.pcbsd.org/content/view/103/11/> *- Galileo Edition*!

Version 7.1 contains a number of enhancements, improvements and bugfixes 
from the 7.0 series.

    * FreeBSD 7.2-Pre
    * KDE 4.2.2
    * The new KDE 4 printer applet enables users to easily add and
      manage printers and print jobs without using the CUPS web interface.
    * The Add / Remove Programs tool and the Update Manager have been
      consolidated into "Software & Updates."
    * The Updater Tray has been modified into a small tray-only applet
      that shows users when updates are available. This is far less
      taxing on the CPU than its previous versions.
    * FreeBSD ports and packages can now be installed in a clean
      localbase by utilizing the "runports" command.
    * Greater stability for Flash 9 allows users to get higher quality
      from Flash sites such as Hulu and Youtube.
    * Enhancements have been made to PC-BSD's System Installer,
      including upgrade functionality for those who wish to upgrade /
      repair PC-BSD while preserving their user data.
    * Fixes have been made to bugs in the Wi-Fi and Networking tools, as
      well as to previous Linux Emulation problems.
