GhostBSD 11.1 RC1 is ready!

This last development release of GhostBSD 11.1 release is ready for testing. All MATE and XFCE images are available only has 64 -bit architectures. For some of you, it might be chock that we are dropping i386 it is a decision that was hard to make. We hope for those that need i386 will find refuge to another BSD project.

On this RC release, we need help to find more problem. GhostBSD 11.1 is our first release featuring our own software package repository.

What change in 11.1 RC1
