http://www.ghostbsd.org/download-4.0

Changes and problems fixed between 4.0-ALPHA2 and 4.0-ALPHA3 include:

  • Network after install works on Virtualbox
  • Added Wifimgr back for better wifi support until Networkmgr is working flawlessly
  • Removed gimp since gimp is easily install with "sudo pkg install gimp"
  • Removed all software that depends on Nautilus (ie. Rhythmbox and gksu)
  • Exaile is replacing Rhythmbox
  • GhostBSD user is now removed after installation
  • New experimental look

Known issues:

  • Network with "Live Image" does not work in Virtualbox - workaround is to install the OS.

A special thanks to those who had reported any issues.
