When I started this project at the time Nahuel joined me, GhostBSD was about having the best Gnome desktop experience, today having a bunch of desktop that do not work correctly with BSD. Gnome 3 had not seen ports yet, because it is basically made for GNU/Linux. I had make a critical decision lately with the rest of the team to abandon all the other desktops in favor of MATE, which is the most suitable solution for GhostBSD a workstation. The MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation of GNOME 2 desktop Environment with huge improvement.

Last year I have wrote an blog post call Summary of the GhostBSD problem in 2012, This year I decide wrote an other post that to Summarize 2013. 2013 was the year were I have made test experimentation with GhostBSD and it help me to defined what GhostBSD should focus on. This was a hard year to to have lots to do alone, with all the burden I had for myself, I had forgot GhostBSD was about having the best desktop experience for a BSD Desktop. Not having a bunch of desktop that does not work correctly with BSD, for the moment the only Desktop other then KDE that work well with BSD is MATE.

In January 2013 an effort bringing kernel support for the AMD GPUs, to allow the use of newer xf86-video-ati drivers and AMD GPUs had became fruitful. The driver is now in HEAD!

This is the release schedule for GhostBSD. The following release schedule date is only an estimate and guide line for helping developers to prepare release in time and tester to have a idea when the next release to test will be ready.
