As some of you have already noticed, there is indeed a new alpha 
available on our FTP site:


MD5 (PCBSD7-x86-07182008-CD1.iso) = 899528ea0a0b132a700fc26f3e2c6d42
MD5 (PCBSD7-x86-07182008-CD2.iso) = 573a922cc80ec29ed23eeaba9b658d42
MD5 (PCBSD7-x86-07182008-CD3.iso) = 377770de260c21bd1a614e6e70214a9a
MD5 (PCBSD7-x86-07182008-DVD.iso) = ca7e3b134e0cc8c8862609fb5001587e

This new release uses KDE 4.1RC1, and also addresses may problems 
encountered over the past weeks. Konsole finally works now as well. This 
release is *English* only, since the KDE4 i18n stuff hasn't been 
finished up just yet, and probably wont be until 4.1 is released at the 
end of the month.

Also, you may download PBIs for this release from here for testing:


I've also implemented some different sound-detection methods, so if you 
get a error about an unidentified sound card, please generate the 
diagnostic sheet and send it back via this list. Also, if you encounter 
errors in the KDE desktop itself, please feel free to check the KDE bug 


Thanks for the help with debugging this Alpha! We at PC-BSD really 
appreciate all your time and effort spent on this!
