Thanks for everybodies patience! I've been working to get 7.1.1 ready for testing, and the i386 ISO
is now ready to go:

ftp://ftp.pcbsd.org/pub/iso/7.1.1-RC1/i386/PCBSD7.1.1-RC1-x86-DVD.iso

I'm still working on prepping the amd64 ISO, and hope to have it posted tomorrow sometime. The fixes for 
it will be identical to the i386 though, minus the nvidia drivers of course.

The changelog for 7.1.1-RC1 is as below. Please report your findings back to this list so we can get 7.1.1
ready for a launch here in the near future. 7.1.1 will be the last release to round-out the 7.x series, so
we can turn our attention to 8.0 and all the major updates that will bring.
