Can we get your hardware specs Hans?  I'm assuming this is just one system or do you have another system you can try this on?  Sorry for the C message.  I guess that's what I get for typing an email while my wife is driving.

Regards, 

Josh

These releases are among the first in our new "Rolling-Release" model, and will allow you to easily keep your system updated with bi-monthly package set updates along side your regular PBI updates. In addition the images now include support for creating and booting from ZFS boot-environments. Due to the nature of implementing ZFS boot-environments, users on previous installs of 9.1-RELEASE will need to perform a re-installation in order to take advantage of these ZFS features. With the upcoming release of 9.2, currently in BETA, existing users may opt to wait for its release in order to migrate to the newer version. Many additional new features are also listed in the notes below.
