work !!

Best regards,

> Testers & Dev,
> As a few of you have already noticed, we have some new ISOs now up on the
> mirrors:
> http://mirrors.isc.org/pub/pcbsd/9.1-RELEASE/
> These are the first images built of PC-BSD Rolling Release, based upon
> FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE, which use PKGNG as the backend for keeping your
> desktop and base-system packages up to date. You are welcome to download
> and give them a spin if you want to help us beta-test them.
> They include updated packages from about 2 weeks ago, which includes KDE
> 4.9.5 among others. Our build server is still finishing up building the
> entire package repository and I hope to have all ~20k pkgng packages online
> in another week or so, with weekly updates after that. The weekly updates
> will include all the latest PC-BSD / TrueOS utilities, so you can expect to
> see much more frequent bug fixes & enhancements.
> For users running on the original PC-BSD / TrueOS 9.1 release, I also have
> an online system update in the works. This update will convert your
> existing install to PKGNG and allow you to start tracking the rolling
> release, the same as if you installed a fresh copy from our new ISOs. Once
> I've finished a bit more testing & bugfixing with it, I will post back with
> details on how to try it out. I'm hopeful it will be sometime next week.
> Lastly, I also wanted to let you know that with this change, it will be
> possible convert an existing "FreeBSD" 9.1-Release into a PC-BSD or TrueOS
> system. I've started writing instructions on the PC-BSD wiki page with
> details:
> http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php/Turn_FreeBSD_into_PC-BSD%C2%AE
> Last but not least, we have some new hardware coming in soon which I will
> quickly get working on building a PC-BSD -STABLE release, and then
> -CURRENT. More details as they arrive :)
> Happy testing, and please post your feedback to the list so we can get to
> work quashing bugs.
