The second PC-BSD 10-STABLE image is now available for download!

http://iso.cdn.pcbsd.org/10-STABLE/amd64/

Disclaimer
---------------------------------------------

This image is a very early cut of the new stable/10 branch of FreeBSD
and is probably only suitable for advanced users or developers. A PKGNG
repository is available for this release, however it is missing a number
of packages we would normally ship with, such as virtualbox drivers, KDE
accessories, etc. The AppCafe currently has only a few items in it for testing,
but more will be added soon.

NOTE: Users of the previous 10-STABLE image may *not* be able to online-update, due to a bug in FreeBSD Update:
