Everybody,

Here's the latest PCBSD7 alpha ISO for testing:

ftp://ftp.pcbsd.org/pub/alpha-isos/i386/PCBSD7-Alpha-x86-05242008.iso

MD5 (PCBSD7-Alpha-x86-05242008.iso) = c20aaf83cc1c92ca7dfcaf8f0bbdeea2

This ISO has a few new features which will require some testing to 
ensure proper functionality. First is the improved keyboard selection 
tool in the installer GUI. Now you are able to select your layout, model 
and variant from all the available choices in Xorg. Your choice will be 
immediately enabled, and then should be transfered to your installed 
system as well.

Next is the ability to choose your filesystem type for the install. So 
far I've gotten working UFS, UFS + Softupdates and UFS + Journaling. 
Please test these options out, and let us know of any problems you 
encounter. There is an option for ZFS as well, but it is not yet 
implemented, so please don't bother trying it just yet. The next alpha 
will hopefully have it fully implemented.

Thanks!
